New England Patriots starting quarterback Mac Jones suffered a "pretty severe" high ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.

Tests confirmed the injury Monday morning but Jones is going to get a second opinion and the hope is that he can avoid having surgery. Once the second opinion is done, the Patriots will get a better understanding of the timeframe for how long he will be sidelined which could be six to eight weeks.

Jones, who was hurt with less than two minutes to play, hopped off the field and headed straight to the locker room, grimacing in pain as two members of the training staff helped him.

In three games this season, the 24-year-old has completed 66 per cent of his passes for 786 yards, two touchdowns and five interceptions while also scoring a rushing touchdown.

The Patriots (1-2) visit the Green Bay Packers next Sunday.
