New England Patriots down another QB as Brian Hoyer leaves with head injury; Bailey Zappe comes on against Green Bay Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- New England Patriots quarterback Brian Hoyer, who was starting in place of the injured Mac Jones, was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers on the second series after taking a hard hit on a sack.

Hoyer was evaluated for a head injury and, at the start of the second quarter, the team announced he wouldn't return.

Rookie Bailey Zappe, the fourth-round pick out of Western Kentucky, took over for Hoyer.

The Patriots don't have any other quarterbacks on their 53-man roster.
