Patriots' Alan Branch: Starts camp on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Branch will begin training camp on the non-football injury list with an undisclosed injury, Mike Reiss of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

Branch's appearance on the NFI list comes as a bit of a surprise as there was no indication of him suffering from any injury in the offseason, but it doesn't appear that whatever currently ails him will keep him out for long. Look for Terrance Knighton, Malcom Brown and Joe Vellano to see some extra reps while Branch is sidelined.

Patriots' Tom Brady: Will share training camp reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Brady in line to serve a four-game suspension to start the season, coach Bill Belichick acknowledged Wednesday that now that the team finally has "some definition with Tom's situation...our priority now is to get Jimmy (Garoppolo) ready for the start of the season," reports.

As training camp progresses, both Brady and Garoppolo, as well as rookie Jacoby Brissett to a lesser degree, will see their share of practice reps. Per Belichick, "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." Garoppolo is thus slated to start the first four games of the coming season for the Patriots, while Brady will be eligible to return to action in Week 5 against the Browns.

Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: Being prepped for Weeks 1 through 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels noted Wednesday that both Garoppolo and Tom Brady -- who is suspended for the first four weeks of the season -- will "get plenty of reps" in training camp, reports.

Rookie Jacoby Brissett will also see his share of reps, but relays that coach Bill Belichick has made it clear that the team's priority is to get Garoppolo "ready for the start of the season, the Arizona game" in Week 1. Meanwhile Belichick reiterated Wednesday what has been assumed; "Tom (Brady) will return as the starting quarterback when he comes back, but in the meantime we can prioritize the first part of our schedule." Thus, barring an injury, Garoppolo is in line to play against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans and Bills out of the gate this coming season, while Brady will return to action on Oct. 9 against the Browns.

Patriots' Bear Pascoe: Joins Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

The Patriots have signed Pascoe, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

With fellow tight end Clay Harbor opening training camp on the Patriots' PUP list, Pascoe adds depth at the position. However, he remains off the fantasy radar due to the presence of Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett ahead of him on the depth chart.

Patriots' Tre' Jackson: Will open camp on PUP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) is set to open training camp on the Patriots' active/PUP list, reports.

Jackson underwent surgery earlier this offseason after missing three games, in addition to two playoff games, with a knee issue. However, as a rookie fourth-rounder, Jackson played in 13 total games across the 2015 season, starting nine of them. This year, Jackson is slated to do battle with Shaq Mason (undisclosed), the newly-acquired Jonathan Cooper (Cardinals) and 2016 third-rounder Joe Thuney in a wide-open competition for both jobs at guard.
