According to the New England Patriots, quarterback Mac Jones suffered a back injury during Sunday’s 20-7 season-opening defeat to the Miami Dolphins. After the game, Jones was not made accessible to the media. After the game, Jones was spotted by several reporters entering the X-ray room at Hard Rock Stadium. According to NFL Network Insider, Jones’ X-ray results were negative, and when the team returns to Foxborough, Massachusetts, he will have his back further examined.
Jones had a 21-of-30 passing performance for 215 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in his first game of his second season. The quarterback suffered two sacks and a fumble loss. When Jones was hurt and the severity of it are both unknown. It is uncertain how (or whether) the injury will effect the player’s performance for the balance of the season because neither the player nor the team have released an official comment about it.
