Sep 19 2016 - Jimmy Garoppolo
  QB Jimmy Garoppolo left Sunday's game with a shoulder injury. He hit his first eight passes and was 18 of 27 for 234 yards when he went down with 4:02 left in the first half. In two games (of his proposed four-game stint) he 42 of 60 for 498 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. Garoppolo had already thrown three first-half touchdown passes when he got hurt. He was taken down after a scramble by LB Kiko Alonso. The pass was completed for a first down but Garoppolo, who appeared to have also been limping slightly just before the play, got up slowly. He went to a knee as the training staff worked on him and grimaced when his shoulder was touched inside his shoulder pad. "We'll just take it day by day," coach Bill Belichick said after Garoppolo, Tom Brady's stand-in during Brady's four-game Deflategate suspension, suffered an injured right shoulder late in the second quarter of a 31-24 win over the Miami Dolphins. "We'll do whatever we think is best for the team," said Belichick. MassLive tweeted after the game: "Told that x-rays came back negative on Jimmy Garoppolo. No broken bones," but that would likely only deal with a broken collarbone. Former Patriot Troy Brown, appearing on local television, said he thought the injury could be to the AC Joint and added he didn't think Garoppolo would play before Brady's Oct. 9 return.


Sep 19 2016 - Jacoby Brissett
  QB Jacoby Brissett threw his first nine NFL passes Sunday and he looks to get his first NFL start for Thursday night's home game with Jimmy Garoppolo injured and Tom Brady suspended. "When it's time to go, you just have to make sure you're ready," said Brissett. "Whenever the opportunity comes, you've got to make sure you're ready for it. "I felt prepared and did enough for us to secure the win." Brissett hit six of his last seven and finished with 92 yards.


Sep 18 2016 - Dont'a Hightower
  LB Dont'a Hightower was inactive when the Patriots hosted the Dolphins. Hightower suffered a knee injury in the opening game at Arizona and was missing from practice throughout the week and officially listed as doubtful on the injury report for Sunday's game.


Sep 18 2016 - Rob Gronkowski
  TE Rob Gronkowski of the Patriots will not play in Sunday's game against the Dolphins because of a hamstring injury, missing his second straight week. Gronkowski was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report and was among the Patriots' inactives for Sunday's game. He injured the hamstring in a joint practice with the Chicago Bears on Aug. 15.


Sep 17 2016 - Tom Brady
  QB Tom Brady is not allowed near his teammates during his four-game suspension, so he returned to his alma mater to stretch out his right arm. Brady, who is serving a punishment for his involvement in the Deflategate scandal, was back at Michigan on Saturday as an honorary captain for the Wolverines' matchup against Colorado, ESPN reported. The three-time Super Bowl MVP is not permitted any contact with New England coaches and teammates, per NFL rules, but he found a willing partner with whom to toss a football around in Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh. About 90 minutes prior to kickoff, Brady and Harbaugh -- both former quarterbacks for the fourth-ranked Wolverines -- exchanged passes from a distance of 25 to 30 yards.


Sep 15 2016 - Ian Silberman
  OL Ian Silberman, a former 2015 sixth-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers out of Boston College, joined the New England practice squad Sept. 15. Silberman played in one game on special teams versus Minnesota last year.
