"When there's big dollars, something major going on, Jim is always right there, but he leaves the football decisions up to me and he trusts me," Grigson said. "He hired me to make football decisions, so I don't see any of that changing. ... If there's something I need to lean on him about in terms of using his football knowledge for my benefit, for the Colts' benefit, I reach out to him, but like I said, he doesn't micromanage me; he lets us all do our job. I don't really see it being an issue."
Irsay was arrested for DUI and possession of a controlled substance last week, and could face between six months and three years in prison if convicted on the four felony counts he faces.
Grigson said he and the team are continuing to show their support for Irsay through this tough period.
"Obviously nothing but great things to say about Jim, he's been magnificent and has done so much for myself, [coach] Chuck [Pagano], the entire building, everyone in the building loves the man," Grisgon said in his first comments since Irsay was arrested March 16. "We all would run through a brick wall for him. We all wish him a full, complete recovery and we're all pulling for him, and I'll leave it at that."
Irsay's daughter will have final say on all team decisions during Irsay's absence.
