New England Patriots QB Mac Jones suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens that could knock him out for the many weeks.
NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported Monday that tests confirmed Jones suffered a “pretty severe” high ankle sprain, per sources informed of the situation.
The hope is that Jones can avoid surgery and he’s getting a second opinion that will further clarify his timetable to return. Jones told reporters on Monday afternoon that his status day to day. He said that any specific injury questions should be directed to Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick.
Jones was injured on his final throw of Sunday’s loss, which was an interception. Baltimore defensive lineman Calais Campbell landed on his ankle while hitting the QB. Jones limped off the field in obvious pain and immediately went in for tests.
