News: The Patriots are expected to hold Mallett out of their final preseason game Thursday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Impact: Meanwhile, the Boston Herald indicates that Jimmy Garoppolo is in line to start the contest. With Sam Bradford of the Rams having suffered a torn ACL, speculation that the Patriots may consider dealing Mallett in advance of the team's final roster cut-downs has been reignited, so holding the QB out Thursday would make sense in such a scenario. The Herald report further speculates that Mallett could turn into a candidate for release, should the Patriots be inclined to carry just two signal callers this season. In any case, who will serve as Tom Brady's top backup come Week 1 remains an unsettled situation.(RotoWire, )

News: Mallett completed 2-of-3 passes for 14 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers. Impact: While top QB Tom Brady started and played in the first two series Friday, he was pulled in favor of Mallett for one series. Both the Boston Globe and ESPN.com suggest that coach Bill Belichick threw Mallett into the game in that fashion in an effort to help him prepare for unexpected situations that may arise during the regular season. Meanwhile, the ESPN report further suggests that the move is likely an indicator that Mallett appears to have retained his status as the Patriots' No. 2 QB over Jimmy Garoppolo.(RotoWire, )

News: Mallett (knee) completed 7-of-11 passes for 92 yards, with a touchdown in Friday's preseason contest against the Eagles. The quarterback also recorded four carries for nine yards, with a six-yard rushing score. Impact: After missing some practice time earlier in the week, Mallett was the third QB (after Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo) to enter the game, and while playing the entire second half Friday, Mallett was able to improve upon his spotty effort in last week's preseason opener. While Mallett's experience in the Patriots' system works in his favor as he tries to hold off Garoppolo, at this stage, his grip on the team's No. 2 QB job now appears less secure than it did heading into training camp.(RotoWire, )
