INDIANAPOLIS — Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett remains in the concussion protocol, but coach Chuck Pagano expects him to play Sunday against Tennessee.

Brissett was injured after getting hit in the head during a Week 10 loss to Pittsburgh. Brissett was first checked on the sideline and then was allowed to return to the game.

Afterward, Brissett re-entered the protocol because of concussion-like symptoms. League officials have said the Colts went through the proper steps on the sideline examination.

When Indy (3-7) returned from its bye week Monday, Pagano said Brissett took most of the snaps at practice and that he should be cleared before Sunday’s game.

Brissett is 3-6 since replacing Scott Tolzien as the starter.
