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,...
Could the Patriots be adding a quarterback after all?
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Patriots are releasing defensive tackle Anthony Johnson. Johnson still has practice squad eligibility and the team has an open spot there, so if he clears waivers he could stay with the team.
This opens up a roster spot, which could potentially be for a quarterback as the team does not know if either Jimmy Garoppolo or Jacoby Brissett will be ready for Sunday’s game against the Bills.
Garoppolo is dealing with a reported sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, while Brissett has a thumb injury suffered in last Thursday’s game against the Texans.
Johnson had a great training camp and preseason to earn one of the final 53-man roster spots...
Stopping the run sounds like such a fundamentally easy concept.
With the Buffalo Bills, it’s anything but. On Sunday, the Bills ran roughshod over the Cardinals defense in a 33-18 win at New Era Field in Orchard Park that interjected a much-needed shot of life into the team from Western New York.
LeSean McCoy ran just 17 times but totaled 110 yards, including touchdown runs of 24 and five yards. Their quarterback, the newly minted Tyrod Taylor finally paid dividends, running the ball nine times for 76 yards, including a 49-yard gallop and a 20-yard touchdown run.
Even Mike Gillislee, the third-year back out of Florida (second in Buffalo), made his 2016 debut, carrying three times for 20 yards.
In all, the Bills ran 32 times for 208 yards. It’s a big reason why the Bills are averaging 4.7 yards per carry over the...
Julian Edelman checked in with Ordway, Merloni & Fauria on Monday to discuss the Patriots’ 27-0 over the Texans last Thursday and also to look ahead to this Sunday’s game against the Bills To hear the interview, go to the Ordway, Merloni & Fauria audio on demand page.
The Patriots were able to blowout the Texans Thursday night with rookie third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett leading the way. Edelman said any time the team wins a game it feels good, no matter what the circumstances are.
“Any time you get a win in this league it feels unbelievable,” Edelman said. “When you’re down a player with a guy hurt, or a guy is not playing who is a big-time player and you scrap and get a win, that’s just...
According to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, the Bruins have signed Brad Marchand to an eight-year contract extension with a confusingly team-friendly cap hit of $6.125 million.
Brad Marchand’s extension with BOS is done. Should be an 8-year deal at slightly more than $6M AAV.
