REPORT: ‘A Chance’ Garoppolo Could Start Thursday Night vs TexansGreg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

After seeing Jimmy Garoppolo in pain following the shoulder injury he suffered Sunday against Miami, it looked like it might have been the final time we saw him this season before the return of suspended quarterback Tom Brady.

Now it appears, that might not entirely be the case.

Despite the fact that rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett seemed to be the player set to start against Houston Thursday night, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Garoppolo hasn’t been ruled out and could even end up shocking everyone by starting.

With two games remaining for his chance to remain the leader of this team until Brady comes back, if Werder’s report is accurate, Garoppolo doesn’t seem like he’s ready to relinquish his role just yet.  Given the hit he took, it’s hard to imagine seeing him run out of the tunnel and line up under center Thursday night.  But if he does, it will be yet another remarkable story for a guy who has done a good job making sure the first chapter of his career will go down as a memorable one.
