Report: Patriots Won’t Know Which QB Is Starting Sunday Until Pregame Warmups


The New England Patriots reportedly don’t even know which quarterback will start in their Week 4 matchup against the Buffalo Bills.

The Patriots won’t decide whether Jimmy Garoppolo or Jacoby Brissett will be their quarterback until pregame warmups Sunday, a league source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Garoppolo suffered a right shoulder injury two weeks ago against the Miami Dolphins. Brissett is dealing with a right thumb injury suffered last Thursday against the Houston Texans. Both quarterbacks were limited in practice all week and listed as questionable to play Sunday.

Garoppolo is 2-0 as a starter, while Brissett led the Patriots to victory over the Texans. Wide receiver Julian Edelman is expected to be the Patriots’ emergency signal-caller.

Regular starter Tom Brady will return from his four-game Deflategate suspension next week against the Cleveland Browns.
