Patriots notebook: Backup QB Brian Hoyer always prepares as if he’s going to play

FOXBORO — Brian Hoyer was the last Patriots quarterback to take a snap in a playoff game.

He won’t be the next.

Nonetheless, Hoyer ran the show yesterday during practice while Tom Brady rested his wounded right hand, which remained swollen after he was injured Wednesday during a collision with a running back. It’s the sixth time Brady has missed practice since the Patriots traded Jimmy Garoppolo and signed Hoyer, so the latter is used to stepping in during these situations.
