Brian Hoyer to start as Colts rule out Jacoby Brissett

  Brian Hoyer to start as Colts rule out Jacoby Brissett The Colts will be without quarterback Jacoby Brissett on Sunday. Brissett was ruled out today, the Colts announced. That means Brian Hoyer will start on Sunday against the Dolphins. Chad Kelly, who was just called up from the practice squad to the active roster, will back up Hoyer.The Colts lost Andrew Luck to a surprise retirement in the offseason, but Brissett took over and played well, helping the Colts get into first place in the AFC South at the halfway point of the season. Hoyer threw three touchdown passes in relief of Brissett last week, but that wasn’t enough as the Colts lost to the Steelers.

The NFL decided why DeShaun Watson 's fumble with 50 seconds to play wasn't reviewed . NFL officials were forced to explain themselves after a controversial non -call played a role in the outcome of Thursday night's Week 12 game between the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts .

In the final two minutes of Thursday night's Colts-Texans game, Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson appeared to lose the ball on a rush attempt as he tried to bleed time off the clock.

Colts players frantically motioned with their arms around the ensuing pile to indicate they believed they had gained possession. Officials, however, ruled the Texans had recovered the football, meaning it remained Houston's ball with the Texans leading 20-17.

Controversially, there was no announced video review of the play. Indianapolis could not initiate a challenge because the clock was well beyond the two-minute warning.

Houston ran out the game's remaining seconds after the near-giveaway to claim a key victory in the AFC South divisional race.

"There was no clear visual evidence of a recovery by the defense," the NFL's officiating account tweeted.
