Colts’ Jacoby Brissett in concussion protocol

In a strange chain of events, Jacoby Brissett finds himself in the NFL’s concussion protocol Sunday evening even though he passed an initial in-game evaluation and finished the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Indianapolis Colts’ starting quarterback began experiencing concussion symptoms after the game and did not make his usual post-game press conference with the media.

Brissett suffered a blow to the back of his helmet in the closing minutes of the third quarter of the 20-17 loss to the Steelers. As he was sliding on a third-down scramble and in the grasp of linebacker Ryan Shazier, linebacker Stephon Tuitt dove over the pile and his helmet made contact with Brissett’s helmet.

After returning to the sideline, Brissett went into the medical tent and was evaluated for a concussion by team doctors. They cleared him and Brissett returned to the bench where backup Scott Tolzien was warming up.

The independent neurologist was evaluating Colts’ defensive back Kenny Moore II at the time and was not available to check out Brissett. When he did, Brissett returned to the medical tent and the independent neurologist cleared Brissett.

The necessary evaluation and clearance happened quickly enough for Brissett to run onto the field and replace Tolzien, who had gone onto the field with the rest of the offense for the start of the next Colts’ possession.

Brissett continued his long-distance throwing at the expense of the Steelers. His 14 completions included a 60-yard touchdown to Donte Moncrief and a 61-yard TD to Chester Rogers.

Not only were they the two longest completions allowed by the Steelers this season, they pushed Brissett’s total of 60-plus yard completions to five. That’s the most in the NFL.

Brissett has had three straight games with two touchdown passes to push his season total to nine. Four of the nine have covered at least 60 yards. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the last Colts QB with four 60-yard TDs in a season was John Unitas in 1966.

Safety Matthias Farley nearly scored on one of the NFL’s rare plays: a botched PAT. When Margus Hunt blocked Chris Boswell’s PAT in the third quarter, Farley grabbed it in midair and headed up field.

Farley was forced to cut back inside around the Steelers’ 5-yard line by holder Jordan Berry, then tackled by tight end Jesse James.

A successful 2-PAT return would have given the Colts a 19-9 lead.

Along with Brissett’s post-game concussion determination, the Colts also suffered a few injuries during the game.

Tight end Brandon Williams exited the game in the second quarter with an injury to his right thumb, defensive back Kenny Moore didn’t return after suffering a concussion in the third quarter and linebacker Darnell Sankey and tight end Darrell Daniels didn’t return in the second half after suffering hamstring injuries.

Linebackers Jon Bostic and Antonio Morrison led the Colts with nine tackles. Cornerback Phillip Desir had eight tackles to go along with an interception of Ben Roethlisberger and two defended passes. . . . Hassan Ridgeway produced the Colts’ only sack of Roethlisberger. . . . With his 48-yard field goal, Adam Vinatieri has converted 18 of his 19 attempts.

Week 10 of the NFL fantasy football season kicked off on Thursday Night Football with the Seattle Seahawks downing the Arizona Cardinals 22-16.

Though it's not fantasy-relevant on an individual player basis per se, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman ruptured his Achilles' tendon and is done for the year, according to Greg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune.

Looking at a running back, Adrian Peterson of the Cardinals could only muster up 29 rushing yards on 21 carries. It's confirmed: as long as Drew Stanton is the quarterback,Authentic Dak Prescott Jersey, it's going to be extremely difficult for Peterson to get anything going.

Josh McCown. Ryan Fitzpatrick. Go get your tickets now.

so I take that back.,Well, actually,Womens Jaylon Smith Jersey, McCown has actually been good this year

coupled with the McCown passing prowess (crazy to be saying that still).,However,Authentic Emmitt Smith Jersey, the storylines here are the Fitzpatrick #RevengeGame and Mike Evans being suspended. With that said, the Bucs won't win this game. The Jets defense is good enough to force Fitzpatrick into a bit of trouble

ust going by the Steelers being 10-point favorites, you know who is going to win. For betting purposes,Womens Harrison Smith Jersey, it's just a matter of by how much.

The Steelers offense is going to be difficult for the Colts defense, and the Colts offense is going to have a hard time with the Steelers defense. Should the Colts be down by a sizable margin, this could force quarterback Jacoby Brissett to have to make plays, and that could go in the Steelers favor.

Coming off a tough Week 9 loss to the Jets,Authentic Stefon Diggs Jersey, the Bills will try to bounce back as they host the Saints, a team on a six-game winning streak, in Week 10.

The Bills are undefeated at home. The defense is going to be one of the harder units for the Saints and quarterback Drew Brees to handle.

The Bills offense is solid enough, too, the Saints defense has been darn good this season, and the addition of wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin can only help. Yes, but I'll side with the home team.

I've got zero confidence in the Packers. They're just not any good with him.,With Brett Hundley at quarterback

The Bears don't exactly have a prolific offense either, but between the running game from Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen, as well as a defense that should pressure Hundley all afternoon long, I can't envision a scenario where the Packers win or cover.

The Bears defense should have a good day getting to Hundley. Whether that translates to fantasy points remains to be seen.

This is a weird game. The Vikings have played well this year thanks to the unsuspecting Case Keenum. Of course, Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and (since Dalvin Cook went down) Jerick McKinnon help, but who thought this would happen?

the Redskins running game is so bad they might just shut themselves down.,The Vikings defense will inevitably shut down the Redskins running game. With that said

their passing attack is all over the place.,For the Redskins

With a 1.5-point spread, I'm comfortable going with the road team here. The Redskins won't be able to run, and the Vikings secondary is good enough to contain a Redskins passing attack that is a cast of randomness on a week-to-week basis.

Either way, the Chargers offense has some weapons, the passing game will have a hard time getting going against Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye, but the Jaguars defense is so good that it won't matter. The Chargers offensive line will have trouble against the pass rush,Womens Dak Prescott Jersey, and Melvin Gordon will struggle to get going at all.

I'll just cut to the chase: the Titans have the weapons edge here, even though the Bengals have Green. This could be the game where we see more of rookie Corey Davis,Authentic Jaylon Smith Jersey,Womens Emmitt Smith Jersey, too.

and he'll play a role here.,Titans safety Kevin Byard has been a difference-maker as of late

but they pull out the win here.,It's hard to trust the Bengals on the road. The Titans haven't been playing as well as we all thought they would

Well,Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey, I'll tell you this: it will be by more than 12. The Texans offense is horrendous with Tom Savage under center, and the Rams have one of the best offenses in the league against a Texans defense that is greatly deteriorated since the beginning of the season.

the Cowboys will actually be without Ezekiel Elliott this week. He has to begin serving his suspension.,Believe it or not

but they still have a stable of running backs that are serviceable. ,Authentic Sam Bradford Jersey,That changes things here for the Cowboys

However, the Falcons playcalling leaves a lot to be desired. Heck, Julio Jones has just one touchdown this season.

Even without Zeke,Womens Sam Bradford Jersey, this game could be quite high scoring. Both teams are susceptible to both the pass and run, but the run game for the Falcons carries them here.

This is the first time in a long time I've been confident in a road team against a team like the Broncos giving up eight-points.

The Broncos offense stinks with Brock Osweiler. The pass defense isn't as notorious as it once was. With that said, the pass rush and run defense should be their usual dominant self. Fortunately, the Patriots could care less about a running game.
