Patriots quarterback Mac Jones left last Sunday's game vs. the Ravens reportedly "screaming" in pain. Then earlier this week the NFL world learned Jones has suffered a "pretty severe" high-ankle sprain.
It's been pretty clear all week long that Jones will not play this week. He may even miss the next few weeks. However, that's not what the Alabama product is telling his teammates.
Jones has been fully involved in the Patriots' game plan this week. He's even telling teammates to not count him out of playing in Week 4.
This would be stunning.
"Per sources, Mac Jones is in the facility and participating in game planning. The #Patriots QB has to told multiple teammates to not count him out of this weekend's game at Green Bay, and is still operating as if he has a chance. Practice is scheduled for around 12:35 today," said Mike Giardi.
It's highly unlikely Mac Jones is able to give it a go this coming Sunday. But you have got to appreciate the kid's toughness.
Brian Hoyer is expected to get the start for the Patriots. The good news is he's experienced and shouldn't be too rattled taking over for Jones.
The Patriots battle Aaron Rodgers and the Packers this Sunday afternoon.
