Jimmy Garoppolo Sprains AC Joint
In the 2nd quarter of Sundays game Graoppolo got hit hardÂ from Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso. Garoppolo ended up landingÂ on his right shoulder and leaving the game with what doctorsÂ later confirmed as a sprained AC joint. With Brady and Garoppolo outÂ 3rd string QB and rookie Jacoby Brissett had to step in. The patriotsÂ went on to win 35-21, but Garoppolo wonâ€™t be available ThursdayÂ when the Patiots take on the Texans. It should be interesting to seeÂ how Belichick game plans with a 3rd string rookie starting on a prime timeÂ Thursday night game. Â As of nowÂ if Brissett goes down Julien EdelmanÂ would be the emergency QB.
