Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Lions. He got in 3 limited practices this week, so a Week 6 return looks possible. QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) was placed on IR, so it’ll be 4th-round rookie Bailey Zappe under center for New England this weekend.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice. QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) was placed on IR, knocking him out for at least the next 4 games. That means it'll be Bailey Zappe under center for New England this weekend if Jones can't go.

Patriots QB Brian Hoyer exited in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Packers to be checked for a concussion. Fourth-round rookie QB Bailey Zappe is next up for New England.

Update: Hoyer has been ruled out with a concussion.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Packers. He did get back on the practice field on Friday, so perhaps he can make it back for Week 5. QB Brian Hoyer gets the start for New England this weekend. That doesn’t figure to go well.

Patriots QB Mac Jones suffered a "severe" high-ankle sprain that is expected to cost him multiple games and would "cause many to have surgery," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Jones and the team are reportedly still figuring out the course of action for the QB. But it seems we should expect him to be out for at least the near future. Brian Hoyer figures to fill in while Jones is out.

Tests on Patriots QB Mac Jones' left ankle revealed a "pretty severe" high-ankle sprain, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. "The hope is Jones won't need surgery," Pelissero adds. "Timetable still TBD but hard to imagine he plays this week vs. the Packers." We'd frankly be shocked if Jones was able to play this week and would expect him to miss multiple games. QB Brian Hoyer will take over for New England. The 36-year-old has made 2 starts since 2017, tossing 1 TD vs. 4 INTs in those games.

Patriots QB Mac Jones dealt with back spasms during or after Sunday's loss in Miami, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's relatively good news, although Rapoport adds that Jones has a "chance" to play this week. It sounds like we'll need to keep a close eye on him throughout the week. If Jones is unable to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday, New England would turn to QB Brian Hoyer.

The Patriots announced that QB Mac Jones has a back injury. He was not made available to the media after the game and was seen heading for X-rays. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that those came back clean. We'll update Jones' status as soon as we know more. QB Brian Hoyer is New England's backup.

QB Brian Hoyer has agreed to a 2-year, $4 million deal with the Patriots, including $3 million guaranteed, ESPN reports. That will keep Hoyer in place as the backup to Mac Jones.

The Patriots have signed QB Brian Hoyer to a 1-year, $2 million deal. The 34-year-old made 1 start for the Colts last season, completing just 46% of his passes for 204 yards, 1 TD and 3 INTs in a loss to the Dolphins. Hoyer does have experience with New England, playing there for his first 3 NFL seasons and then again in 2017 and 2018. We imagine the Patriots would like to see 2019 4th-rounder Jarrett Stidham win the starting job, but Hoyer will be around as insurance. New England could also still add a rookie QB to the mix.

Colts QB Jacoby Brissett will miss Sunday’s game against Miami. Brian Hoyer will make the start while Brissett rests an MCL sprain. Hoyer’s a risky fantasy option, but a matchup with the Dolphins puts him on the deep league radar.

Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) is a game-time decision for this weekend’s tilt with the Dolphins, HC Frank Reich said Friday. Brissett got in 3 limited practices this week. Colts-Fins doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET, so hopefully we get an update on this situation on Sunday morning. QB Brian Hoyer will draw the start if Brissett is out.

Colts QB Jacoby Brissett has a "chance" to play against the Dolphins this weekend, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The MRI on the injured left knee confirmed an MCL sprain. We'll keep a close eye on Brissett's status throughout this week, but it at least looks like he avoided a multi-week injury. QB Brian Hoyer will start vs. Miami if Brissett can't.

Colts QB Jacoby Brissett injured his left foot or ankle in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game in Pittsburgh. He was able to get off the field under his own power and is being looked at by trainers on the sidelines. QB Brian Hoyer is in for Indianapolis. We'll update Brissett's status when we learn more.

Update: The Colts announced that Brissett has a knee injury and is questionable to return.

The Colts have reached agreement with QB Brian Hoyer on a 3-year deal with $9 million guaranteed, according to multiple reports. Hoyer will back up Jacoby Brissett and could present some upside as a cheap DFS play if the starter goes down.

The Patriots and QB Brian Hoyer have agreed to a 3-year deal. He slides back in as QB Tom Brady's backup, a role he served from 2009 to 2011. Hoyer, of course, remains off the fantasy radar.

The 49ers have released QB Brian Hoyer. He was 3rd on the depth chart after the big trade for QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Hoyer might latch on with the Patriots, who need a backup QB after shipping away both Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett this year. Hoyer spent the first 3 seasons of his career in New England.

2:10pm EDT 10/15/17

49ers QB Brian Hoyer was benched in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game in Washington. He completed just 4 of 11 for 34 yards before getting yanked. Rookie QB C.J. Beathard has entered the game for San Francisco. He could get a long look with the 'Niners trending toward 0-6.

The 49ers have agreed to a 2-year deal with QB Brian Hoyer, a source tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hoyer played reasonably well for Chicago last year, completing 67% of his passes with 6 TDs and 0 INTs in 6 appearances. He's also familiar with HC Kyle Shanahan's offense, having played in it in Cleveland back in 2013. Of course, the 31-year-old isn't San Francisco's long-term answer. This signing makes the 49ers a strong bet to draft a QB this spring. If it's a 1st-rounder, Hoyer might quickly fall to #2 on the depth chart.

Bears QB Brian Hoyer is expected to miss 6 weeks after undergoing surgery to fix his broken forearm. That timetable would put him back on the field for Week 14. It's unclear whether the starting job would be waiting for Hoyer at that point, though. He's not worth stashing on fantasy rosters. We'll see whether QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is ready for next Monday night's game against the Vikings. If not, QB Matt Barkley will get the start.
