New England Patriots (2-0) current starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, suffered an injury earlier today in the teams 31-24 home victory over their division rival the Miami Dolphins (0-2).
The third-year player, Garoppolo, left the field in the games second quarter with a shoulder injury, this after helping his Patriots accumulate a healthy lead.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported after the game that Garoppolo suffered a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder, according to someone informed of the results of exams performed at the hospital today. Garoppolo’s chances of playing Thursday against the Texans are slim, per Garafolo.
Rookie quarterback and third-round draft pick Jacoby Brissett finished the game for the Patriots, while wide receiver Julian Edelman was labelled the offenses emergency quarterback.
The Patriots will welcome back Tom Brady in Week 5, but still have two games to endure possibly without the services of the aforementioned Garoppolo.
