The Latest on Mac Jones' Week 1 Injury

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones reportedly suffered from back spasms during Sunday's 20-7 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports X-rays were negative and Jones could play in the Patriots' Week 2 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Additionally, Jones told reporters he felt better on Monday and wants to be able to play in Week 2, according to Rapoport.


New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones underwent X-rays after suffering a back injury during Sunday's 20-7 loss to the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium.

Jones was unavailable to reporters after the game, but is expected to be made available to the media Monday afternoon, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

"Patriots QB Mac Jones, whose post-game press conference was canceled after it was announced he had a back injury, is scheduled to hold a virtual media availability with reporters on Monday (approx. 3:30 p.m. ET)," Reiss tweeted.

Head coach Bill Belichick said there was "no update on Mac," Monday morning, but confirmed "he came back with us" and added "we'll see how that goes," according to Reiss.

Jones finished Sunday's game with 213 yards, one touchdown, and one interception on 21-of-30 passing, having been sacked twice, including a blindside hit in the second quarter that resulted in a fumble recovered and returned for a touchdown by Miami.

Jones was also hit high and low by multiple Dolphins players on a roughing-the-passer play in the fourth quarter, which Reiss said several reporters in the media interview room believed could have been when the back injury took place.
