Vereen suffered a triceps injury in the 29-27 loss to Washington. Jennings said he had no problem holding the ball in his right hand when rushing, but the thumb injury does affect his ability to catch and pass protect. This will depend on Jennings' availability.

McGregor to fight Alvarez for lightweight title at UFC 205

Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo guilt trip: Brady played through worse
- September 24, 2016

Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler has respect for the position that both New England quarterbacks are navigating while trying to seize opportunities afforded to them because of the unavailability of a sure Hall of Fame quarterback. It's no coincidence that my autocorrect keeps changing "Brissett" to "Brisket" - the rookie will be fresh meat for the Texans dogs. ABOUT THE PATRIOTS (2-0): While Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) has yet to make his season debut, fellow tight end Martellus Bennett has ... (more...)
