New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones went down in the final plays on Sunday, Sept 25, in the 37-26 home loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The starting quarterback was in considerable pain as he hopped off of the field and was carried into the locker room.


Jones has been diagnosed with a severe high ankle sprain. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, this type of injury would cause many to have surgery. 


“I’m just going to take it day by day, get my treatment and do what I do. Just see how I feel, if you have any more of those type questions, talk to Coach [Bill] Belichick. I think he likes those questions.” said Jones in a postgame interview.


Veteran Brian Hoyer is the Patriots’ top backup, and fourth-round draft pick Bailey Zappe out of Western Kentucky has been the No. 3 option. The Patriots (1-2) visit the Green Bay Packers (2-1) on Sunday, Oct 2, and Belichick said early Monday he wouldn’t speculate if Jones might be placed on injured reserve.
