Shark Bites

ESPN's Mike Reiss reports that QB Mac Jones "and most Patriots starters" aren't expected to play in tonight's preseason opener against the Giants. It would be nice to see Jones in action amid negative camp reviews, but we'll have to wait.

Recent Shark Bites

Patriots QB Mac Jones managed a limited practice Wednesday. That's a pretty big step after he missed Week 4 with what was deemed a pretty significant high-ankle sprain. Jones reportedly wanted to play Sunday against the Packers. We'll see if he can actually get back into the lineup for Week 5. We wouldn't be using him in fantasy lineups outside of superflex and 2-QB leagues. But Jones' return should be good for New England pass-catchers.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Packers. He did get back on the practice field on Friday, so perhaps he can make it back for Week 5. QB Brian Hoyer gets the start for New England this weekend. That doesn’t figure to go well.

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.

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.
