Patriots OC Josh McDaniels on QB reps in practice: "This is really the time of the year where we really try to provide everyone with their foundation for the whole year, so our philosophy really is going to remain unchanged for a while here, in terms of repetitions. We usually split them up pretty evenly. We don't really put anybody in first and second groups, or third groups, at this point. What we really try to focus on is getting everybody opportunities to work on their fundamentals and techniques, and to work with the different players on our team because we don't know right now who's going to be doing what six, seven weeks from now. They're both going to get plenty of reps and so is Jacoby [Brissett]. We're going to do what we've normally done in the past and all those guys have things we can get better at, and we're excited to coach them all and to work with every one of them."

Bill Belichick on the QB situation: "We had, finally, some definition with Tom's situation, so our priority now is to get Jimmy [Garoppolo] ready for the start of the season, for the Arizona game [Sept. 11]. That will be, obviously, a comprehensive process. Tom will return as the starting quarterback when he comes back, but in the meantime, we have to prioritize the first part of our schedule and that will be to get Jimmy ready to go."
