Bill Belichick gets salty with reporters again over injury questions (Video)
The New England Patriots have lost another key player to injury, which means Bill Belichick will be forced to field questions he finds incredibly annoying in the days leading up to Thursday’s showdown with the Houston Texans.
It happened on Tuesday, and Belichick reacted the only way he knows how. When asked about Jimmy Garoppolo’s shoulder injury, Belichick snapped that he is not a doctor and has a “great deal” where the medical staff gets to make those decisions.

When pressed further and asked if he makes a decision based on the info he gets from the medical staff, Belichick seemed even more annoyed.
“I do what’s best for the football team,” he said. “Let me put it a different way — I’m the coach and I do what’s best for the football team. I don’t know why we can’t understand that.”
It’s no surprise that the Patriots aren’t providing updates on Jimmy Garoppolo’s health, and it’s probably safe to assume they’re the ones planting the latest reports about the quarterback.
Last week, Belichick embarrassed a reporter who asked about the status of Rob Gronkowski. You can see that video here.
