New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones is believed to have suffered a high sprain in his left ankle during Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens, according to multiple reports.
Jones will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis. The severity of the injury will determine how long, if any, it takes for Jones to be sidelined.
Jones was hit hard late in the game, coming off a jump when he went to the sideline after Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell fell on him after a throw.

FOX NFL injury analyst Dr. Matt Provencher says the high ankle sprain could keep Jones out two to four weeks.
Jones suffered a sprained ankle in the same foot before the Senior Bowl coming out of the University of Alabama. He has not been on the Patriots injury report yet.

It wasn’t the best of games for Jones before the injury. He threw three interceptions and no touchdowns, even though the game was close. He went 22 of 32 for 321 yards.
Jones, however, scored with his feet as he caught a rushing touchdown. Rhamondre Stevenson and Damien Harris, the Patriots’ top two rushers, also had a score each.
If Jones is going to miss time, veteran quarterback Brian Hoyer is his backup.

Overall for his career, Hoyer is 16-23 when starting.
