No Brady, no Garoppolo, and now no Brissett? Patriots rookie reportedly injured thumb (Shutdown Corner)

For over 20 years, the New England Patriots have had essentially two starting quarterbacks: Drew Bledsoe and Tom Brady, a remarkable run, particularly in a league where great QBs seem harder and harder to find. Brissett, a third-round pick, started the Patriots’ Thursday night game against Houston, and while he didn’t light it up, he was steady, completing 10-of-19 passes, running the ball in himself for one touchdown, and perhaps most importantly, not turning the ball over.
