Jacoby Brissett has stepped up for the Colts since Andrew Luck’s abrupt retirement, but gave Indianapolis fans a good scare Sunday after leaving the game with an apparent injury to his left knee.

But it’s not all bad news in Indy, although it certainly isn’t ideal.

Colts head coach Frank Reich told reporters Monday afternoon that Brissett indeed has a sprained MCL, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. But Reich remains “optimistic” that Brissett will be up to snuff come this Sunday when the Colts will take on the Miami Dolphins in Indy.

There’s always a silver lining, right?
