Mac Jones officially did not practice Wednesday

When Patriots head coach Bill Belichick met the media on Wednesday morning, he said quarterback Mac Jones‘ ankle was getting better day by day and little else about the prospect of Jones playing against the Packers this weekend.

Belichick did let slip that Jones probably would not take part in the team’s practice later in the day. The Patriots released their official injury report on Wednesday afternoon and it shows that Jones was on the sideline during the session.

While Belichick is unlikely to be any more expansive about Jones’ outlook, the practice reports on Thursday and Friday should fill in the gaps about Jones’ outlook. If he doesn’t practice, it’s hard to imagine he will be in the lineup.

Defensive lineman Lawrence Guy (shoulder) was the only other player out of practice. Safety Joshuah Bledsoe (groin), offensive lineman Yodny Cajuste (thumb), safety Kyle Dugger (knee), defensive lineman Davon Godchaux (back), linebacker Raekwon McMillan (thumb), wide receiver Jakobi Meyers (knee), cornerback Jalen Mills (hamstring), and safety Adrian Phillips (ribs) were all limited participants.

  1. My understanding is Mac’s people are working on fashioning a special cleat that will wrap the ankle like it’s in a boot, and he’s going to play.

    They don’t have to make that move right now. Get it?

  3. What if….20 years from now, Calais Campbell’s name was uttered in the same breath as Mo Lewis’ name, and Bailey Zappe was threatening to win his 8th Super Bowl…breaking TB12’s record……..can lightning strike twice? Or should I say can lightning Zappe you twice? Inquiring minds need to know. I’m hoping the kid gets some snaps. Having broke Joe Burrows TD record and set the NCAA passing record last year, some folks felt Bailey Zappe was the best QB in college football. It’s a jump in competition, but it would be cool to see what the Kentucky Hilltopper can do. In college he had the freedom to audible into any play in the play book, and it turned out well. Maybe he can do the same in the pro’s, though it’s only been 4 weeks. The Football Gods say…..”Starting Hoyer is prudent, BUT….if you are playing Crappe, you must turn to Zappe.”

  4. No worries here. Belichick creates QB’s, regardless of their skill level and tools. Look at how successful he’s made Hoyer!

  5. Hoyer’s real name isn’t Brian it’s Axel. Didn’t know that but I like it. He should go by that name. 🙂
