For now, the offense is in his hands.

The Indianapolis Colts acquired quarterback Jacoby Brissett in a trade with the New England Patriots earlier this month, giving up former first-round pick Phillip Dorsett in the process.

The Colts turned to Brissett in Week 2 after a blowout loss in Week 1 to the Rams. Scott Tolzien, who started against the Rams, threw a pair of pick sixes and the offense never found a rhythm.

Brissett lost his first start for the Colts last week, when the team fell in overtime to Arizona in its home opener. He’ll take care of the offense while the team awaits the return of franchise quarterback Andrew Luck.

Here are a few things you should know about the Colts quarterback.

Brissett hails from Palm Beach, Florida, and considers that his favorite vacation spot. His collegiate career started at Florida, but Brissett eventually transferred to North Carolina State.
