The injury news about Mac Jones is not great.

Jones suffered a high ankle sprain during his New England Patriots’ 37-26 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter says that a sprain of such severity causes many people to undergo surgery.

At a minimum, Jones is expected to miss multiple games.

Schefter says Jones and the Pats are still discussing options. That seems to indicate that surgery could be a possibility.

The Patriots are 1-2 and have Brian Hoyer as their backup and Bailey Zappe as their third-string quarterback. Given their depth chart and the severity of Jones’ injury, the Patriots could be shaping up for a long season and likely top-10 draft pick.

Jones has passed for 786 yards, two touchdowns and five interceptions this season.
