The New England Patriots are expected to sign quarterback Garrett Gilbert to the practice squad, NFL Network reported Tuesday.

Starting signal-caller Mac Jones (high ankle sprain) and backup Brian Hoyer (concussion) are injured, leaving rookie fourth-rounder Bailey Zappe as the only healthy passer on the roster.

Gilbert, 31, made one start with Washington last season and completed 20 of 31 passes for 194 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions in a Week 15 loss at Philadelphia.

A sixth-round draft pick by the then-St. Louis Rams in 2014, Gilbert has passed for 477 yards, one TD and one pick in eight games (two starts) with four teams.

Zappe completed 10 of 15 passes for 99 yards and a touchdown after relieving Hoyer in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss at Green Bay.
