Who will start at quarterback for the Patriots in Week 5? – Boston Herald


GREEN BAY, Wis. — Who starts at quarterback for the Patriots next week against Detroit?

Not even they can be sure.

Already without Mac Jones, the Patriots lost backup Brian Hoyer to a head injury after just two drives in Sunday’s 27-24 loss at Green Bay. Hoyer hurt his head when Packers outside linebacker Rashan Gary sacked him midway through the first quarter. Hoyer initially met with medical staffers in a sideline tent before being accompanied to the locker room as he walked under his own power.

He finished 5-of-6 for 37 yards and led the Pats to a field goal and a punt on his two series.

“Brian’s been a great friend to me for a long time in this organization,” Pats center David Andrews said post-game. “I hope he’s OK.”

Fourth-round rookie Bailey Zappe replaced Hoyer for the rest of the game and went 10-of-15 for 99 yards and a touchdown. Teammates praised Zappe, who exceeded expectations even as he took three sacks and the offense sputtered late. Zappe also split reps with Hoyer in practices, according to wide receiver Kendrick Bourne.

“Proud of the way he competed,” Andrews said. “I thought he led us well.”
