The 3-0 Patriots still have one more game without Tom Brady, and now have yet another question mark about who will play in his place in the final game before his return.
Jacoby Brissett, who led the team to a win on Thursday, has suffered a torn ligament in his throwing hand according to WEEI.com.
The need for surgery at this point is uncertain, though likely to completely stabilize the thumb.
It’s not clear when exactly the injury occurred but he was having his thumb looked at in the third quarter on the side, with a broken nail clearly visible.
Brissett was tackled by Vince Wilfork from behind with just under 13 minutes left in the third quarter on the opening drive of the second half.
If Jimmy Garoppolo can recover, he will likely get the start, if not, the team will probably have to pickup up one, or even two QB’s this week.
