It’s clearly Patriots-Bills week as Rex Ryan has had press conferences two straight days and on both occasions Ryan has brought Bill Belichick up unprovoked.

It’s clearly Patriots-Bills week as Rex Ryan has had press conferences two straight days and on both occasions Ryan has brought Bill Belichick up unprovoked.

After Sunday’s win over the Cardinals Ryan said he doesn’t care if Belichick plays quarterback on Sunday, his team is coming after him. Then, on Monday he opened his press conference trying to impersonate the Patriots coach.

“We’re gonna start with the injury report,” Ryan said to reporters at the open of his press conference. “You’ll get it on Wednesday. Simple as that. You’ll get it [when we] turn it in.”

Ryan later added how much respect he has for the long-time Patriots coach.

“I think my admiration is really for Belichick more than anything,” Ryan said. “As a coach, that’s the guy. He’ll go down as probably the best in the history of the game. I like poking fun at him and all that stuff, but there’s no coach I respect more than him.”

The Bills have lost 28 of the last 31 meetings with the Patriots, with one of the wins being the last regular season game in 2014 when it had no barring on the playoffs for the Patriots and they rested many of their starters.

“[Winning Sunday] would mean a lot to our football team,” Ryan said. “[The Patriots] have been the standard of this league, not just in our conference, division, whatever. They’ve been the standard of the league. So you want to put yourself up against the best. I think everybody saw what happened, when everybody [said], ‘Well, no Tom Brady. This team will be a disaster.’ Well, they’re 3-0 last time I checked. And they beat some pretty good football teams. So yeah, it will mean a lot. We need a win in the worst way.”

The Patriots are signing former Cleveland defensive lineman John Hughes, per Field Yates of ESPN.

A third-round pick of the Browns out of Cincinnati in 2012, the 6-foot-2, 304-pounder has been with Cleveland all five years in the league. He was cut earlier this month, but had played in 53 games with the Browns and had 5.5 sacks and 52 tackles in his tenure with Cleveland.

For the second straight week, there is some uncertainly at the Patriots quarterback position.

According to a source, Jimmy Garoppolo (sprained AC joint in his right shoulder) is still considered day-to-day and has not yet been ruled out from playing Sunday against the Bills. The team needs to see how Garoppolo responds in practice this week before it can make a determination on his status for Sunday.

Last week the quarterback was limited in practice Tuesday and Wednesday, but was inactive for the game Thursday against the Texans. Garoppolo suffered a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder against the Dolphins in Week 2. CSNNE’s Tom E. Curran reported it was a Grade 2 sprain, which generally takes 2-4 weeks to recover from. Sunday against the Bills would mark exactly two weeks.

The Patriots’ third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett suffered an injury to his right thumb in Thursday’s win over the Texans and his status for Sunday remains uncertain.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media on Monday morning, the Patriots didn’t plan on bringing in another quarterback because they were confident in the availability of either Garoppolo and Brissett.

As was the case last week, the Patriots starting quarterback might not be known until just a few hours before kickoff.
