Jimmy Garoppolo's injury opens up the AFC East race, for now


23 September, 2016

The third-year quarterback, who is dealing with an AC sprain in his right shoulder, is listed as doubtful on the team's final injury report.

Bill Belichick has never been one to tip his hand on anything, especially his plans leading into a game.

Tom Brady is still suspended, of course, with two games left.

The Patriots "have done extensive preparation" this week to prepare Julian Edelman as the backup quarterback for Week 3 against the Texans.

Belichick had said in a press conference earlier this week that the quarterback could be a game-time decision like any other position, which means Garoppolo could be just that on Thursday.

The person to ask about the quarterback situation, of course, would be Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who joined 98.5 The Sports Hub's Zolak & Bertrand on Wednesday.

The New England Patriots are 9-2 straight up and 10-1 against the spread in their last 11 games as a home underdog. Brock Osweiler was under center last November in Denver when the Broncos overcame a 14-0 deficit for a 30-24 overtime victory to give New England its first loss of 2015. They certainly assumed they'd be fine for four games with Garoppolo, and now he's out.

After his release from the team, Falcons coach Dan Quinn praised Renfree for his qualities as a football players.

In relation to injuries in the team, there is some good news for the Patriots as linebacker Dont'a Hightower practiced on Tuesday after being out due to a knee injury.

As it is, Thursday's game between two undefeated AFC contenders should be fun.

Furthermore, they have to make sure not to put any more players at risk as it would be a huge blow if the team suffers from any more setbacks due to injuries. Depending on how Brissett's start goes and Garoppolo's health progresses, Jimmy G could play Week 4. Gronkowski was a limited practice participant all week.
