Jacoby Brissett suffered a sprained right thumb in the New England Patriots' Week 3 win over the Houston Texans.
Brissett started for the Patriots with Tom Brady suspended and Jimmy Garoppolo injured.
The team is weighing its options on how to proceed with Brissett, but the injury is "not deemed to be a serious one."
Garoppolo could potentially be healthy by then if Brissett can't play. Julian Edelman also knows the position and could have been used in an emergency on Thursday night.
