Jacoby Brissett could open the season as the starting quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts. Andrew Luck has not practiced since the third day of training camp as team officials have separately defined his injury as a calf strain, bone injury and ankle issue.

Brissett started 15 games for the Colts is Luck's absence in 2017. While Luck said his goal is to start Week 1 of the regular season against the Los Angeles Chargers, he isn't on the field this week for joint practices with the Browns and head coach Frank Reich said the team needs to know who will start by next weekend. That's when the Colts, and most of the NFL, will utilize preseason Week 3 as a dress rehearsal for the season opener.

"You have to be able to make a call and move from there," Reich said. "Whether we're the full speed with Andrew after that third preseason game or if at that point we are going with Jacoby (Brissett)." Brissett was 4-11 as the 2017 starter, completing 58.8 percent of his passes for 3,098 yards with 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 260 yards and four scores.
