The New England Patriots are having some quarterback issues right now, and it's unclear what the team's strategy for Sunday.

 Three days to kickoff against the Detroit Lions.

The Patriots put quarterback Brian Hoyer on injured reserve on Thursday.

Hoyer had a severe concussion this past Sunday while playing against the Green Bay Packers, and it appears that he has not made enough progress through the NFL's concussion protocol.

On Sunday, Hoyer took over for an ailing Mac Jones, who is also dealing with an ankle ailment.

Jones' condition has now been changed to limited in practise, although at best, he'll probably be rated as doubtful for tomorrow.

Some supporters believe that the Patriots' decision to place Hoyer on injured reserve indicates that they are confident Jones will start and that rookie Bailey Zappe will act as the starter's backup.

Bailey Zappe played well in the Patriots' loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Even though Zappe had only been the team's third-string quarterback for one week, he still completed 66.7 percent of his throws for 99 yards and a score.
