Patriots announce QB Mac Jones has a back injury

·1 min read

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones will not be available to the media on Sunday due to a back injury sustained in Sunday’s 20-7 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

The Patriots couldn’t provide much resistance along the offensive front as they got deeper into the game, and Jones took some hard shots while trying to deliver throws in the pocket.

It’s a tough way to begin the season for the Patriots, who have the Pittsburgh Steelers and their vaunted defense next on the schedule. Stay tuned as more information becomes available.
