It looks like New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones is going to miss some time.

According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Jones suffered a severe high ankle sprain towards the end of the game on Sunday. The team is hoping that he won't need surgery and there's currently no timeline for his return.

After Jones suffered the injury, he was seen badly limping off the field. He then had to be carried to the locker room by some of his teammates since he couldn't put any weight on his foot. 

NFL fans know that this isn't good news for the Patriots.

Even though the Patriots have both Hoyer and Zappe in the system, there's also a  chance that they could go out and get a veteran. 

One option that's out there is Cam Newton, who started 15 games for them back in 2020. 

This was already a difficult season for the Patriots and now, it's gotten that much tougher.
