New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo left the game before halftime with an apparent shoulder injury. Mass Live’s Kevin Duffy has the update:
Told that X-Rays came back negative for Jimmy Garoppolo. No broken bones.— Kevin Duffy (@KevinRDuffy) September 18, 2016
Now we’re not out of the woods just yet, but the fact that Garoppolo isn’t dealing with a broken bone has to be good news. Let’s hope that it’s a minor injury and he’ll be available to face the Houston Texans on Thursday.
We’ll keep you updated with more information as it comes out.

While Jimmy Garoppolo is undergoing tests, the Patriots know he won't play Thursday night against the Texans, per source.— Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) September 18, 2016
The early indication on Garoppolo's injury is it will take 6 weeks to heal, per source. But still undergoing full battery of tests.— Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) September 18, 2016
