PFT Live: Patriots talk with Tom Curran, PFT Planet calls and tweets

AP

The Patriots take the field for their first preseason game on Thursday night, but they won’t have Tom Brady leading the offense for even a cameo at the start of the game.

Ryan Mallett will get the start and is expected to play for a good chunk of the game, so Mike Florio will talk to Tom Curran of CSN New England about what to expect during Thursday’s edition of PFT Live. They’ll talk about the possibility that New England is showcasing Mallett, Jimmy Garoppolo’s readiness for a backup job and much more about things not related to the Patriots quarterbacks.

We’re sure there are plenty of questions that PFT Planet wants to get answered now that exhibition games are kicking off around the league. Share them with us on Twitter — @ProFootballTalk — or by giving a call to 888-237-5269 during the show and Florio will answer them.

It all gets started at noon ET and you can watch it all live by clicking right here.
