The New England Patriots are 3-0 so far this season and has one game left before superstar quarterback Tom Brady takes over his starting position. They take on the struggling Buffalo Bills on Sunday and there are still no confirmed reports on which one of Jimmy Garoppolo or Jacoby Brissett will start for the team.
NFL rumors about the Patriots starting QB position is likely to continue until game time, which is set at 1:00 PM on Sunday at the Gillette Stadium in New England.
Garoppolo had a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder in Week 2 when New England won over the Miami Dolphins. Brissett started in Week 3 against the Houston Texans in a big 27-0 shutout win for his first start in the league. Brissett injured his thumb that game.
Meanwhile, Rex Ryan, the head coach for the Bills is prepared whoever starts at QB for the Patriots. Buffalo started the season 0-2 but won in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals, 33-18.
“Hey, you know, I can sit back and say I don’t care who plays quarterback because I know (Tom) Brady ain’t,” Ryan stated to ESPN to hype up the game against the Patriots.
“I don’t care who plays quarterback. (Former Patriot) Steve Grogan can play quarterback. If (Bill) Belichick’s playing quarterback, we’re coming after him. I promise you that.”
The Patriots looked at signing free agent quarterbacks as temporary player but have not signed any quarterbacks, which means that one of Garoppolo or Brisset will be healthy enough for Week 4 against the Bills.
