Mac Jones is catching some heat following a “dirty hit” on Brian Burns in the New England Patriots’ 24-6 win over the Carolina Panthers.

In the first quarter, Jones was strip-sacked by Burns and he grabbed onto his ankle as the defensive end tried to run forward — putting him on the sideline with a temporary ankle injury. Panthers’ Haason Reddick was furious with the play and vocalized that in his press conference following the game.

“Definitely thought it was a dirty play,” Reddick said. “I actually saw and witnessed the play while it was happening. At first it felt like he was trying trip or kick Burns. And the next thing you know I saw him tugging on Burns’ ankle. I thought it was completely dirty. Hopefully, it’s something the league addresses.”

Bill Belichick assessed the play on Monday and offered his take.

“I think he thought Burns had the ball,” he said.

Buffalo Bills linebacker Tyrel Dodson offered his opinion on Twitter and was clearly frustrated watching the play.

As Reddick mentioned, it’s possible the league fines Jones for endangering Burns.
