Mac Jones hopped off the field during the fourth quarter of the New England Patriots’ loss to the Baltimore Ravens, a worrisome sight for fans.

To be fair, you never want to see your starting quarterback even limping off the field. But hopping? Well, that wasn’t a great sign for the Patriots.

Now a day later, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting on Jones’ status, and it unsurprisingly isn’t encouraging news for New England.

It’s interesting that Schefter noted that the sprain would “cause many to have surgery” because whether or not Jones goes under the knife is still an open question.

Reading between the lines, it sounds like multiple games missed could end up being the best-case scenario for Jones and the Patriots.
