Will Brady get playing time or not till week 3?

Doesn’t sound like Luck will even go week 1. Ugh.

I just did a quick search and couldn’t find any info. Last week, we knew based on the walkthrough he wasn’t playing. I’m fine with it either way, as I want to see more of the rookie.

I’m guessing Brady plays a couple of series. I would be surprised if Stidham doesn’t get the bulk of the work over Hoyer. We may have a new good one in him but who knows at this point?

Tennessee is a rising team with what I think is a very good coach in Mike Vrable.

Ya I honestly don’t think Brady needs much practice time lol. Guys like that know the game. He could miss all pre season and be fine.

Yup. It’s going to be a tough division. Houston will be a 10 win team. Tennessee is a threat and is Foles plays good the Jags will be tough. If Luck misses time Colts won’t make playoffs.

Houston Fires Billy O November 1st

Brady plays 2 series or less, will not play in second quarter.

Can’t wait

Will be all they need to get up 14-0 haha

Two defensive injuries for the Pats so far.

Hate that the most. Injuries in pre season

4 games is too much. CFL there is 2! NFL can’t seem to figure it out.

Pats are playing mostly second stringers. But the first injury was a young DL that was a high draft pick.

Patriots rookie rb having a good game.
