Quarterback Mac Jones isn’t the only member of the Patriots offense dealing with an ankle injury.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that tight end Jonnu Smith is also hurting ahead of Week Five. While Jones is believed to have a high-ankle sprain, Smith has reportedly been diagnosed with a low-ankle sprain.

That typically means a shorter return trajectory and Smith is considered week-to-week at the moment. The Patriots host the Lions this weekend and play the Browns on the road in Week Six.

Smith has started two of the first four games this season and appeared in all of them. He has seven catches for 58 yards.

  1. If a tree falls in the woods. . . ?

    I certainly don’t want him hurt, but not a big Jonnu fan.

  2. Money well spent. Remember when all we heard was reloaded? These are actual stats. J smith 7 for 58 yards and HH 5 for 41! Those aren’t game stats, those are 4 games into the season. We’ll done BB, well done. Where’s the turtle anyway? Hiding as usual? Bourne is your best WR but ya know you guys keep him mostly off the field. What a clown show

  3. Free Agent Bust. But the Patriots have to either keep him or try to trade him as he has the highest cap # of anyone on the team. Couple this with Isaiah Wynn and it would appear the Patriots are paying big money to average players. I wonder what Kraft is thinking these days. It has been downhill since Brady left.

  4. Let’s wait to see him play with Bailey Zappe before declaring him a bust. Bailey Zappe managed to connect with Parker in his first game something Jones has struggled with the last 3 games.
