The right thumb of Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett appears to be bleeding as he throws an early third quarter pass.

The team is weighing its options on how to proceed with Brissett, but the injury is "not deemed to be a serious one," per Rapoport, who noted that the Patriots are expected to add another veteran quarterback.

Brissett was shown on the sideline in obvious discomfort during the third quarter of the Texans tilt, but he played from wire-to-wire.

New England has another nine days before playing the Buffalo Bills in Week 4. Garoppolo could potentially be healthy by then if Brissett can't go. Patriots receiver Julian Edelman also knows the position -- and could have been used in an emergency on Thursday night -- but he's far too valuable to start under center.

Veteran free-agent Matt Flynn could serve as a possible signing, along with fellow street arm Ryan Lindley. The Patriots only need help for one week, with Brady -- coming off his four-game suspension -- set to return to action in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.
