Tests confirmed that New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones suffered a "pretty severe" high ankle sprain, NFL Network reported Monday.

Jones is getting a second opinion but the hope is that the injury won't require surgery, per the report.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick had no update when he met with the media earlier Monday.

"Just quickly on Mac, really no update on him. We'll go through the process and see where things are this morning, but nothing definitive at this point," Belichick told reporters.

He added that he would not "speculate wildly" about the status of Jones ahead of Week 4.

After tossing an interception on the final play of the Pats' 37-26 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Jones was brought to the ground by Calais Campbell and his ankle got caught under Campbell's leg. Jones hopped off the field on one foot and was seen grimacing in pain on the sideline.

Jones had to be carried into the locker room and was screaming in pain in the tunnel.

Jones completed 22 of 32 passes for 321 yards and three interceptions against the Ravens. He also rushed for 31 yards and a touchdown.

Brian Hoyer is the Patriots' backup quarterback and 2022 fourth-round pick Bailey Zappe is also on the 53-man roster. New England (1-2) plays at Green Bay (2-1) on Sunday.
