Pagano says medical staff handled Brissett fine

From ESPN - November 13, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts coach Chuck Pagano defended the team's medical staff on Monday, a day after questions arose as to how they handled quarterback Jacoby Brissett's concussion situation in Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"Our guys, if they are not 100 percent, they are not going to put them back out there -- period," Pagano said.

Brissett went into the concussion tent on the sideline after he took a shot to the back of the head from Steelers defensive lineman Stephon Tuitt on a third-down scramble with less than two minutes left in the third quarter. Backup quarterback Scott Tolzien took the field on the Colts' next series, only to have Brissett run on at the last second.

Brissett's postgame media session was canceled after the team announced that he developed concussion symptoms following their 20-17 loss to the Steelers.
