Latest Brady back-up Brissett injured thumb in Pats win (AFP)

The New England Patriots could be looking for yet another quarterback after rookie Jacoby Brissett hurt his right thumb in Thursday’s 27-0 NFL victory over the Houston Texans. WEEI radio in Boston reported Brissett, a third-round draft selection who was making his first career start because of Jimmy Garoppolo’s shoulder injury, would require surgery to repair ligament damage. Garoppolo was standing in for superstar signal-caller Tom Brady, who will be eligible to return in week five after serving his delayed four-game suspension for the “Deflategate” scandal.
