Post-game update: He’ll still need more tests, but Jones appears to have suffered a high-ankle sprain, which could keep him out around a month. Brian Hoyer is his backup.

Post-game update: Jones had negative x-rays, but the team believes he suffered tendon and/or ligament damage in his ankle. He looked to be in a lot of pain. I doubt we see him back soon. Brian Hoyer is New England’s current backup QB.

The New England Patriots had a tough test in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens. They took the 37-26 loss, but that isn't the worst of it. Quarterback Mac Jones is being evaluated for a leg injury that did not look good.

The injury came late in the fourth quarter, and his left leg was rolled up on by a defender. He was able to limp to the sideline, but couldn't put pressure on his leg and was in visible pain. If Jones did suffer a bad injury and is unable to play in Week 4, it would likely be the veteran Brian Hoyer getting a start.

After the game, a video shows that Jones had to be helped to the locker room and is in a lot of pain. He isn’t able to put weight on his leg and had to nearly be carried. This is a big injury to watch during the upcoming week.
