Gilbert outduels Brissett, Browns clip Colts

With both starting quarterbacks sitting out, Cleveland Browns backup Garrett Gilbert threw for 151 yards and two scores to outduel Jacoby Brissett in a 21-18 victory Saturday afternoon over the host Indianapolis Colts.

Gilbert, a standout in this spring's Alliance of American Football, completed 13 of 19 passes, including a 4-yard score to Jaelen Strong and a 6-yarder to D'Ernest Johnson. Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr. and the Browns' other starters did not play, after two productive joint-practice sessions with the Colts during the week. Beckham has yet to play in the preseason.

Brissett played three series, going 8 of 10 for 100 yards and a 12-yard touchdown to Eric Ebron. Deon Cain, a 2018 sixth-round pick who missed all of his rookie season with a torn ACL, had seven catches for 80 yards, both game highs.

Andrew Luck sat out for the Colts as he continues to work back from a left ankle injury, but he did warm up pregame, moving laterally through bag drills and throwing several passes.
