  • Quarterback Mac Jones isn’t expected to be on the field when the Patriots head out for practice on Wednesday, their first practice since Jones suffered what has been reported to be a high ankle sprain on Sunday against the Ravens. Head coach Bill Belichick let reporters know ahead of practice during his Wednesday morning press conference.

    “Saw Mac a little while ago. Definitely getting better. Probably won’t practice today but he’s definitely made a lot of progress in the last 48 hours,” Belichick said. “We’ll take it day-by-day and see how it goes.”

    Update: Jones was not spotted at practice on Wednesday.

  • Multiple reports have indicated Jones is expected to miss time due to injury, and he and the team are still mulling the options on how to proceed. However, Belichick declined to confirm whether or not Jones does in fact have a high ankle sprain.

    “Day-by-day,” Belichick said when asked the question directly. “What do I look like, a doctor? An orthopedic surgeon? Like, I don’t know. Talk to the medical experts…do you think I’m going to read the MRI? That’s not my job.”

  • Belichick fell back on the ‘day-by-day’ line multiple times during the press conference, including when asked whether or not Jones was expected to start Sunday, and whether or not the current plan is for him to have a “procedure.”

    One thing Belichick did confirm though is what will happen if Jones can’t take the field Sunday against Green Bay. If that happens, Brian Hoyer would get the start.
