Could Mac Jones be coming back? The quarterback for the New England Patriots has missed the last three games because of a severe ankle sprain, but his recuperation seems to be going well. Mac Jones “expects to be available,” according to Mike Reiss of ESPN, for the team’s Monday Night Football matchup against the Chicago Bears this week.
According to sources, Mac Jones, the quarterback for the New England Patriots, “expects to be available for the team’s ‘Monday Night Football’ game against the visiting Chicago Bears.”
Mac Jones is anticipated to take the field on Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears, according to ESPN. This is wonderful news for the Patriots, who have gone 2-1 without Jones by third-stringer Bailey Zappe outperforming all expectations.
In relation to that, Jeff Howe of The Athletic adds that once Mac Jones is fit and back in the lineup, which seems likely, there will be “noquarterback issue in New England.”
Given that Jones himself outperformed expectations as a rookie last season, tossing for 3,801 yards and 22 touchdowns to just 13 interceptions, it makes perfect sense.
The Alabama product led New England to the playoffs while being named to the Pro Bowl. That calibre of output probably allows Jones some wiggle room with the Patriots coaching staff.
Uncertain is the exact amount. Jones presently has five interceptions in just three games this season, making him look very different from the quarterback who performed well last year.
Maybe Mac Jones will have the chance to put an end to the quarterback saga during Monday Night Football’s matchup with the Bears defence.
