The Patriots added quarterback Mac Jones to their practice report about 90 minutes after the release of their initial practice report. He was a full participant with a left thumb injury.
His thumb issue, obviously, isn't on his throwing hand so there probably isn't a whole lot here. As the story said, Jones threw three times the last time the Patriots were in action in Week 13 and then had a bye in Week 14 so it's not clear when this injury happened.
NE QB Mac Jones - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Jaguars
The Bills held Mac Jones in check, as the rookie has had some rookie moments over the last two weeks. Fortunately, he gets a pretty favorable matchup this week against the Jaguars, who seem to have packed it in for 2021. With the playoffs still within reach, look for Jones to get over some of his recent hiccups and get himself right against the Jags heading into a huge Week 18 game in Miami. He's a solid QB2 for this week in the finals.
