Mac Jones on ankle: I’m just taking it day to day

Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was last seen on Sunday howling in pain while being carried to the locker room after losing to the Ravens and a report on Monday indicated that he is dealing with a “pretty severe” high-ankle sprain.

Jones appeared to be in a lot less pain when he spoke to reporters during a media session on Monday afternoon and he toed the company line when it came to revealing any information about his condition.

“I’m just kind of taking it day to day, and making sure everything’s good,” Jones said, via Michael Hurley of CBS Boston. “And honestly, any injury questions are Coach Belichick’s thing. So I’m not here to answer them. I appreciate everyone kind of reaching out and looking after me, but it’s kind of just a day-to-day thing, and I’m just trying to get better.”

Wednesday will bring the first practice of the week and the first injury report will be released after that session. That may not shed light on Jones’ long-term outlook, but it may be the next official word on where things stand with his ankle.

  1. As a Bills fan, his injury saddens me. I hope he’s healthy soon so there’s no excuses when they keep losing

    I think as a Bills fan you have to shed that kind of thinking. I get it, it makes you happy when the Patriots lose, but it’s kind of beneath you now. Worry about the other good teams in the league and winning the Super Bowl. The Bills are the clear favorite, even after losing to Miami. Every season while they have Allen in his prime and healthy they will have a shot. When the Patriots beat the Bills in the Brady era it wasn’t even really an event. It was just what a good team does. It was all about beating the Steelers, Ravens, Colts, Denver, etc. It shouldn’t be an event for the Bills now. Fine, enjoy the Patriots misery to some extent, but mostly focus on what matters.

  3. I feel like if it was as dire as we have heard from Shefty and Rapsheet then BB wouldn’t be letting Mac talk to the press. I have never seen BB let guys talk to the press that are going on IR for example.

    I feel like they might be thinking it’s a week to week kind of issue.

    It was really hot and they made our team stand in the sun
    We had a lot of players out
    The other team told the dr to let their qb keeep playing
