NFL World Reacts To Friday's Mac Jones News © Image:msn
Mac Jones, the quarterback for the New England Patriots, has missed the past three contests due to a high ankle injury.
Although he apparently intends to make a comeback on Monday night, he hasn't yet made a significant improvement in practise.
Jones continued to participate in practise only to a limited extent on Friday, per the team's injury report.
Prior to missing the New England Patriots' Week 6 shutout victory against the Cleveland Browns, Jones took part in only a few practises the previous week.
Although the significance of the news has divided supporters, it is not a sure indicator that Jones will start on Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears.
Jones may have a greater chance to prepare for the matchup in Week 7 with the additional day.
However, considering Bailey Zappe's success, it's difficult to picture New England rushing back the second-year quarterback.
The fourth-round selection led the Patriots into overtime against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in Week 4 to make his NFL debut off the bench.
Since then, he has started two games and guided them to victory, completing 41 of 55 passes for 497 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception.
Before being hurt, Jones, on the other hand, threw five interceptions in three games.
Jones will start once he is well enough, according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic, but Zappe's performance could at least allow the Patriots to play more cautiously.
