The Indianapolis Colts have turned to a recent addition to play quarterback. The team has benched starter Scott Tolzein.

Tolzein struggled against the Los Angeles Rams. Head coach Chuck Pagano has put in Jacoby Brissett, who was making his debut with the team.

Brissett was acquired by the Colts in a trade with the New England Patriots. The team got him in a deal for underachieving wide receiver Philip Dorsett.

Tolzein went 9 of 18 for 128 yards before he was removed from the game. He also had two carries for two yards in the 46-9 loss to the Rams.

Head coach Chuck Pagano also saw Tolzein be sacked four-times for 29 yards. Even though the Colts recovered the ball, Tolzein also fumbled the ball.

On his first pass of the game, he did; however, throw a pick-six to the Rams defense. He also did that in the third quarter.

Tolzein was nearly picked off a third-time. Yet, Donte Moncrief had to save the day, as he had to make a desperate move to commit a face mask penalty to break up the potential third interception.

Tolzein looked out matched on all facets of the game. He was expected to be the Colts starting quarterback with franchise quarterback Andrew Luck out as he heals from a January shoulder surgery.

An earlier report on Sunday suggested that Luck may be out until the middle of October.

Brissett, when he came in, went 2 of 3 for 51-yards.
