New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones is believed to have sprained his upper left ankle during a loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, according to multiple reports.

Jones will reportedly undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis. The severity of the injury will determine how long, if any, Jones remains out of the game.

Jones took a big hit late in the game, jumping as he went to the sideline after Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell landed on him after a shot.

Dr. Matt Provencher, injury analyst for NFL on FOX, says the high ankle sprain could keep Jones out for two to four weeks.

Jones suffered a sprained ankle in the same foot before the Senior Bowl when he left the University of Alabama. He is not yet on the Patriots’ injury report.

Jones, however, scored with his feet when he had a rushing touchdown. Rhamondre Stevenson and Damien Harris, the Patriots’ top two running backs, each also scored.

If Jones is going to waste time, veteran quarterback Brian Hoyer is his backup.
