Patriots QB Mac Jones suffered a "severe" high-ankle sprain that is expected to cost him multiple games and would "cause many to have surgery," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Jones and the team are reportedly still figuring out the course of action for the QB. But it seems we should expect him to be out for at least the near future. Brian Hoyer figures to fill in while Jones is out.

Tests on Patriots QB Mac Jones' left ankle revealed a "pretty severe" high-ankle sprain, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. "The hope is Jones won't need surgery," Pelissero adds. "Timetable still TBD but hard to imagine he plays this week vs. the Packers." We'd frankly be shocked if Jones was able to play this week and would expect him to miss multiple games. QB Brian Hoyer will take over for New England. The 36-year-old has made 2 starts since 2017, tossing 1 TD vs. 4 INTs in those games.

With WR Jakobi Meyers out, Patriots WR DeVante Parker led the team in targets (10), receptions (5) and receiving yards (156) in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. Each of Parker's 5 catches went for 24+ yards, which is a credit to him and a reminder that this Baltimore defense is once again looking like a high-ceiling matchup for opponent passing. Kendrick Bourne checked in 2nd among wideouts with 4-58 on 5 targets. Nelson Agholor caught 2 of 3 targets for 41 yards. Lil'Jordan Humphrey actually checked in 2nd among WRs in playing time and routes but garnered just 1 target.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson edged RB Damien Harris in carries (12-11) and touches (16-13) in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. He also outproduced his backfield mate, averaging 6.1 yards per rush to Harris' 3.7. Stevenson added 4-28 receiving (7.0 per catch) vs. Harris' 2-5 (2.5). Each scored a rushing TD. This marked the 2nd straight game in which Stevenson led Harris by more than 15 total snaps and more than doubled his route rate. Although Harris opened the game in the lineup, Stevenson looks like the 1st guy to use going forward. (Of course, it's Bill Belichick's team. So we'll watch to see if that changes.)

Patriots QB Mac Jones is "believed" to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jones is scheduled for an MRI on Monday to get a better look at the injury. A high-ankle sprain would likely cost him multiple weeks -- and put Brian Hoyer under center for New England. We'll pass along further updates on Jones as we get them.

X-rays on Patriots QB Mac Jones' left ankle came back clean, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "His ankle will continue to be evaluated," Rapoport adds. Jones isn't out of the woods yet, but this is good initial news.

Patriots QB Mac Jones hurt his left leg late in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. He was in obvious pain and headed back to the locker room. We'll look for updates on Jones' status.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Ravens. S Adrian Phillips (rib) and CB Jalen Mills (hamstring) are active, after heading in questionable.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Ravens. That leaves Nelson Agholor, DeVante Parker and Kendrick Bourne as New England’s top 3 WRs.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) is not expected to play vs. the Ravens today. He got in just a limited practice on Friday this week, so this isn't a big surprise. Meyers' absence leaves behind 29% of New England's targets over the first 2 games. WR Nelson Agholor becomes a more interesting Week 3 fantasy play with Meyers out. DeVante Parker and Kendrick Bourne figure to operate as the #2 and #3 WRs.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger (knee), S Adrian Phillips (ribs) and CB Jalen Mills (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Dugger missed the 1st 2 practices before returning for a limited Friday workout. Phillips put in limited practices all week and played through his injury in Week 2. Mills popped up on the injury report as limited Thursday but made it for another limited workout Friday. We'll check their statuses Sunday morning. DT Davon Godchaux (back) and LB Raekwon McMillan (thumb) are also questionable.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Ravens. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. Meyers played and produced a 9-95 line with this injury last week, but he seems to be in worse shape now. We'll get New England's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. His availability for this weekend's game vs. the Ravens is now officially in question. Check back tomorrow for another update on Meyer's Week 3 status.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He played through this issue last week, although that was after 3 limited practices. We'll see if Meyers is able to get on the field Thursday, ahead of this weekend's game vs. Baltimore.

"I'm fine," Patriots RB Damien Harris told the media after appearing to injure his left knee late in Sunday's win over the Steelers. Just the fact that he was allowed to speak with the media is a good sign that his injury (if there is one) isn't serious. We'll keep an eye on Harris this coming week, but he should be available for Week 3 vs. Ravens.

Patriots RB Damien Harris appeared to injure his left knee late in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He was able to hobble off the field but was in obvious pain. Stay tuned for an update. RB Rhamondre Stevenson would be the obvious beneficiary of Harris' absence.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley left Sunday's game with a back injury and is questionable to return. We'll see about the severity. He showed up on the injury report this week with a toe issue but was back to full practice by Friday.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger left in the 1st half of Sunday's game at Pittsburgh with a knee injury. He is questionable to return.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips (ribs) and LB Raekwon McMillan (thumb) are active for today's game against the Steelers. Neither is a high-level IDP play.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He was limited all week in practice. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.
