Bill Belichick confirmed that Cam Newton’s hand injury will keep him out of the Patriots’ Thursday’s OTA practice and explained how that impacts the other three quarterbacks in attendance, Matt Vautour of Masslive reports.

“He’s doing all right. He won’t participate today, but he’s getting better,” said Belichick, who was asked if the injury was serious. “No. He’s not out there, but I think he’ll be all right.”

Reports say that Newon suffered a slight bone bruise that is not considered a major injury.

Belichick called Newton the team’s No. 1 quarterback in April. With Newton out, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is distributing extra work among rookie Mac Jones and returning backups Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham.

“It gives everybody more opportunities,” Belichick said. “Josh does a good job of working that out depending on what we’re doing and what each individual player needs, trying to get the right amount of work to the guys. He’s got a lot of experience doing that. Josh does a great job of getting everybody prepared. We’ve talked about it, but individually he’s the one who really has to make those decisions and he does a great job of it.”
