FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Jimmy Garoppolo was a limited participant in practice Tuesday as he continues to recover from the right shoulder injury he sustained late the first half of New England's win over the Miami Dolphins last week .

The third-year quarterback sat out practice on Monday.

The Patriots have yet to add another quarterback to the roster, increasing the possibility that rookie Jacoby Brissett could make his first career start against Houston (2-0) if Garoppolo can't go. In that situation, receiver Julian Edelman would be the emergency option.

It didn't stop an onslaught of Garoppolo-related health questions on Tuesday. It drove Belichick to the point of agitation as he was pressed about Garoppolo's status.

Belichick said the medical interests of Garoppolo would take precedence.
