Brian Hoyer (concussion) still not practicing for Patriots

New England Patriots quarterback Brian Hoyer (concussion) did not practice again on Thursday.

What It Means:

Hoyer started last week in place of Mac Jones (ankle) and was then knocked out with a concussion. It doesn't look like Hoyer will clear protocol in time, but Jones returned to practice and is trending toward playing in Sunday's Week 5 game against the Detroit Lions. Rookie Bailey Zappe will make his first career start if Jones and Hoyer both wind up being inactive.

The Lions have the fourth-worst pass defense and second-worst overall defense in numberFire's advanced team rankings. They are also allowing the most FanDuel points per game to the quarterback position through four weeks, but Jones is only averaging 14.0 FanDuel points per contest and he's 21st out of 30 qualified quarterbacks in Passing Net Expected Points per drop back.
