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.
Patriots’ QB Mac Jones is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain during today’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens, per source. He will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis and determine the severity of the injury.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 26, 2022
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.
