Update: X-rays were negative, so that’s good news for Jones.
X-rays were negative on #Patriots QB Mac Jones' injured back, per source. He'll be evaluated further when the team gets back to Foxborough.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) September 11, 2022
The New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was unavailable to talk after the loss to the Dolphins due to a back injury, per Phil Perry. We are unlikely to get much information out of New England until the Week 2 injury report, but this will be a much discussed injury. Brian Hoyer is Jones’s backup, which doesn’t bode well if Jones can’t go next week.
Jones completed 21-of-30 passes for 213 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. He also lost a fumble in a 20-7 loss to the Dolphins.
