That's what a combination of suspensions and injuries will do to a team.
Tom Brady is, of course, the Pats regular quarterback.
Now, third stringer Jacoby Brissett is set to start in the team’s Thursday night game against the Texans.
The Pats are hoping that Garoppolo is well enough to serve as Brissett’s backup, but they’re getting Edelman ready just in case.
Meanwhile, off the field Edelman has found himself embroiled in a love triangle with Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima and Ryan Seacrest.
Lima, who's dating Edelman, was recently seen at dinner with the TV and radio host.
Adriana Lima is one of the most beautiful women in the world, so it's no wonder she has a lot of men trying to win her heart.
