At this point in the week, the availability of Patriots quarterback Mac Jones for the Week Six game against the Browns is still unclear.
But what’s not so murky is Jones’ effort to recover from his ankle injury, at least according to New England quarterbacks coach Joe Judge.
“All I can speak on is how I see him work and the attitude and enthusiasm for his team he brings every day. So, this guy’s doing everything he can physically to get back on the field full-time for us,” Judge said on Tuesday, via NBCSportsBonston.com. “He’s doing everything he can possible mentally he can to prepare for the game. He comes in every day focused. He does a great job in meetings, he does a great job on the field in what he can do out there when he’s with us.
“So, very encouraged by how he’s worked and we all know he’s doing everything he can to be back on the field. So in terms of how he handles it from a mental standpoint, all I can speak on is I know he’s mentally preparing himself and helping mentally prepare the other quarterbacks for Sunday every week.”
Jones has been out since suffering the ankle injury on his last play in New England’s Week Three loss to Baltimore. So far this season, he’s completed 66 percent of his passes for 786 yards with two touchdowns and five interceptions.
