Patriots quarterback Mac Jones got hurt on New England’s final offensive play on Sunday and the team did not have any update on his condition after the 37-26 loss was in the books.

There is an update from outside the organization, however. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that X-rays of Jones’ left ankle were negative.

Jones looked to be in serious pain as he hopped off the field and then got carried to the locker room by other members of the team. He will continue to be evaluated, although history says the Patriots won’t share much information until they’re required to submit an injury report on Wednesday.

Jones was 22-of-32 for 321 yards and three interceptions on Sunday. The third of them came on the same play that led to his ankle injury.

  1. Good to hear.

    Unfortunately the Patriots are now experiencing first hand what other teams go through when they have high hopes for a first round pick QB only to discover that he isn’t the answer. It’s not that easy to find your guy. And Mac Jones does not look like he is the guy. The arm just isn’t there. And I bet Bill Belichick is starting to realize it if he hasn’t already. Wouldn’t surprise me if the plug is pulled a lot sooner than later. That’s how Bill rolls.

    Ask Bills fans what they think of JP Losman and EJ Manuel. It was the exact same talk and same excuses with them that we’re hearing now with Mac Jones. Josh Allen took 3 years but that’s not a comparable. Jones is supposed to be a near finished product. Allen was a raw project with very high upside. Apples and oranges,

    Lol! Now that’s funny!

  3. Negative also on macanoodle Jones lame dance moves , what a lamewad , as lame as those clam chowder slurping slobs in New England. He fits right in

  4. Could Jones be a bad QB? Possibly but I think this has more to do with bad coaching. Most of his issues were mental. They need an experienced offensive coach that knows how QBs think and what to say to them to re-focus them. Jones is all on his own and is not getting the training he needs.

    Mac Jones has no upside. You’re seeing exactly who he is or isn’t. And you’re also seeing many members of this site reacting to the chronic trolls in your fan base. These trolls in your fan base make many of us celebrate when you fail. And your team is failing in a tremendous way and look look completely pathetic this season.

    Going to be a long, long, disappointing season for the Pats trolls.

  7. Peyton Manning had no arm after 4 neck surgeries and he did fine. Mac’s lack of arm strength won’t be the reason he fails in the NFL.

  8. The Offensive Line “protecting” Mac Jones is coached by a LITERAL clown, there only because he’s a yes man for the most overrated coach in the history of professional sports, employed by a senile NFL franchise owner rendered utterly helpless since the passing of his wife.

    I know where Brady was able to take this franchise at one point, but this team is DOOMED!!!

  9. @GMG you could be right about Jones. He wouldn’t be the first QB to flame out after a good rookie season. I’m not as concerned about his arm as some are and Im glad they took the reins off but today was kinda alarming. He’s supposed to be a good decision maker and today he was Hugh Millen or Drew Bledsoe at his worst. That wasn’t supposed to happen.

    The coaches have a lot of work ahead of them including this offseason.

    If hes a bust what does that make Lawrence, Wilson and Fields?

    Also busts.

  11. Jones’ problem today wasn’t his supposed “noodle” of an arm (can one of you come up with original, btw?), it was his mental errors on two of those INTs. He had no business on throwing those balls. But to say this game somehow serves as proof that he’s not a franchise QB is beyond ridiculous. Other than the INTs, he threw 68% for 320 yds and even gained 30 on 5 carries. Maybe we can give the kid the chance to finish out his second season before we decide his future. Besides, go back and watch Brady through his first 20 starts and tell me if you think he looked like the GOAT.

  12. Game 3 of season 2 of a young QB who has had what lots of young qbs go through. There is no next TB12 so..giving the kid a chance..he’s looking good and see growth. Time will tell..geez millennials relax..he’s developing and has started to show it today..even in a loss

    They marched up and down the field all day against that putrid Baltimore D.

    Dirty play by Calais Campbell, too. He jumped up and put all his weight on him.

    Mac’s mental mistakes is why they lost. 2 INTs were of the terrible variety.

    Reminded me of a classic loss in the Shotgun Spread Brady years like 4 ints up in Buffalo in Sept of ‘12. Tons of games like that in that era. You just can’t do it and expect it not to have an effect.

    It’s an offensive league and the qbs can’t be careless with the ball like that. The teams are too evenly matched.

    Mac Jones is a turnover machine especially since mid-December 2021. He is not the savior you hoped for. It’s a simple fact that the vast majority of knowledgeable football fans see. It’s only the Pats homers that are blind to it.

    Please learn the game of football. It’ll help you to better understand your team’s significant flaws from the players to coaches.

    (This should sound familiar to him since the mods allowed him to tell others to “go to college” when they didn’t agree with what he spewed)

  16. Dirty play by Calais Campbell, too. He jumped up and put all his weight on him.

    You lost again no excuses just once try to be an adult and man up.

  17. Three games into his second season is a little early to hammer the nails in his coffin.

    I thought he played well but you can’t turn the call over. I thought he missed some key reads and never should have thrown three passes, the first two interceptions and the drop by Queen that could have been a pick six.

    That said, he competed and responded to a Ravens lead by leading scoring drives before and after the half to take the lead.

    He also responded to a 17-point Ravens third quarter by leading a scoring drive and by hitting Agholor on a drive that could potentially put the Pats up in the 4th.

    His teammates love him.

    That bodes well.

  18. I see the Buffalo fans are salty about their “super team” taking it on the chin and now taking shots at an injured guy.

    Don’t get it twisted. There are many fans around the league laughing at the Patriots due to the terrible trolls from your own fanbase that never stop trolling. Enjoy the new normal…your team is a bottom feeder and fans will enjoy trolling you relentlessly for it.

  20. Gotta love “silentphart” warning about “trolls.” Although I wonder about someone who takes the time to come onto the Patriots board to tell everyone they’re not relevant. Hmm…

  21. After 3 games there are to undefeated teams, the Eagles and Dolphins. The Giants are 2-0.

    No one picked that trifecta.

  22. Why would anyone take something that calls itself “silentphart” seriously. I bet that’s the name on the back of its Jets jersey?

  23. Don’t get it twisted. There are many fans around the league laughing at the Patriots due to the terrible trolls from your own fanbase that never stop trolling.

    But I thought Bills fans were “better”? Lol!
    So I guess you’re just admitting they aren’t!

  24. (This should sound familiar to him since the mods allowed him to tell others to “go to college” when they didn’t agree with what he spewed)
    ______________
    He was thrown out of college.

  25. Awww look at the angry Pats fans chiming-in. You likely upvote the mega-trolls from your fanbase so enjoy being trolled along with them.

    It’s a fact that your team is a bottom feeder now and it’s a fact that your “franchise QB” would barely qualify as a backup on less needy teams. Accept it and hope for better days in a few years/decades. LOL

  26. Hopefully Jones doesn’t miss any time. But if he does, whoever steps into the starting role will be successful because Belichick has a way with choosing and creating successful QB’s. Brady’s success solely is due to Belichicks knowledge and teaching ability of the position.
