Don’t Close the New England Patriots Quarterback Book Mac Jones playing Sunday game against the Green Bay Packers.

It seemed a foregone conclusion that the Patriots would have a long way to go to Lambo Field to face Aaron Rodgers and company with Brian Hoyer as the starting quarterback. Jones is still recovering from an ankle injury he sustained in a Week 3 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

He is reported to have “severe” high ankle sprainwhich usually takes up to six weeks to heal. Coach Bill Belichick said Jones had made “a lot of progress” in Media conference on Wednesdayand it would appear that the sophomore quarterback is actually telling his teammates not to eject him from the game in Week 4.

Unless Jones suddenly turned into Wolverine with rapid healing abilities, it’s hard to imagine anyone recovering from the injury he received so quickly.

Hoyer even answered questions from members of the media, which usually indicates that he will play under the center for the Patriots. But it’s also odd that Jones was telling teammates that he still had hope of playing in the game.

Even if he doesn’t play on Sunday, would that mean he’s close enough to get back where the Patriots wouldn’t consider moving him to IR? Perhaps it’s all just the hype of the team’s mind games as they prepare for a tough matchup with the Packers.

This latest twist has made the once bleak game that much more intriguing.
