Jacoby Brissett enters concussion protocol after suffering big hit against the Steelers

Head coach Mike Tomlin was able to breathe a sigh of relief on Sunday after his opportunistic Pittsburgh Steelers scored the game's final 17 points to rally for a 20-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Those symptoms were obvious for all to see during the game.

Jacoby Brissett impressed with two TD passes of 60-plus yards, but his struggles with turnovers continued in the fourth quarter of a loss to the Steelers. Corner Pierre Desir also picked up the Colts' only turnover of the game as he pounced on a deep ball towards Martavis Bryant and give his offense great field position. Through nine game he has totaled 882 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Backup Scott Tolzien, who started the team's season opener and threw a pair of pick-sixes in a losing effort, would be the team's next man up if Brissett can't play. He was the team's third option at quarterback last season, but after Tom Brady's suspension to open the year and the injury to Jimmy Garoppolo, he started two games, posting a 1-1 record.

Roethlisberger was 19 of 31 for 236 yards with one interception.
