Latest On Patriots’ QB Situation

The Patriots have not made plans to bring in T.J. Yates, Ian Rapoport of tweets. Rapoport calls Yates the Pats’ “free agent quarterback of choice” and by not signing him, it’s an indication that they are confident in the health of Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby BrissettT.J. Yates

Brissett looked great as he made his NFL debut and first ever start against the Texans on Thursday night. During the course of the Pats’ 27-0 victory, however, the rookie suffered a thumb sprain. Meanwhile, Garoppolo is still dealing with a sprained AC joint in his throwing arm. Tom Brady returns soon, but the Patriots still have to get through their October 2nd contest against the Bills before welcoming him back on October 9th to face the Browns.

In the first two games of the seasons, Garoppolo completed 42-of-60 passes for 498 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions in wins over the Cardinals and Dolphins. The Pats are hoping to see the youngster do more of that against Buffalo, but if he can’t, it sounds like Brissett should be ready.

    Steve Grogan declined the offer to play QB for a game siting she as a problem, Drew Bledsoe said he’s making too much money with his winery and didn’t want to be replaced by the same QB who stole his job the last time he was a Patriot, Jamarcus Russell volunteered to play for free! The Patriots respectfully declined. That just leaves two injured QB’s and Julien Edelman as possible starters for Sundays game against the Bills..

      if you think one game for buffalo means they are now good you are as naive as any owner who has had Rex as a coach.

    I think Belichek could play QB and they’d still beat any team in the division.
