Giardi: Garoppolo 'still in pain,' does not have full mobility in shoulder

The Patriots had both Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett on the field for Tuesday's practice.

While many are hopeful that Garoppolo will be ready to go on Sunday, it’s definitely not a given at this point.

According to CSN’s Mike Giardi, Garoppolo is “still in pain and does not yet have full mobility in his throwing shoulder”

Tom E. Curran had better news about Jacoby Brissett’s thumb. The rookie quarterback was in the Patriots locker room locker room Tuesday morning without splint, tape or cast on his thumb. 

When he asked Brissett if he's feeling "tip-top," he answered, "Oh yeah."

Legendary broadcaster Gil Santos passes away at the age of 78

Legendary Patriots broadcaster Gil Santos passed away today on his birthday at the age of 78.

The long-time voice of the Pats served in the booth for a total of 36 years, mostly alongside former Patriots kicker Gino Cappelletti. Santos also served as the morning sports anchor for WBZ-TV.

Santos was in the booth for 743 Patriots games, 15 playoff runs and 6 Super Bowls. He was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2013, only the second non-player to earn that honor. 

Gil Santos was born in Acushnet and spent most of his adult life living in the town of Raynham.
