After the Patriots loss the the Miami Dolphins 20-7, Quarterback Mac Jones did not make it to the podium due to being evaluated for a back injury. Typically the Starting Quarterback has to make an appearance to answer the media after each game. Unless they have sustained a head injury during the game. Breaking from the mold, Jones was not seen nor heard after the season opener.
Jones was available to speak to the media Monday afternoon and when asked about this by Mike Reiss, Jones answered the questions with a little bit of attitude.
“Change in what routine?” Jones answered when asked about the routine of the Quarterback being available for the media.
“I think my health was a priority there and just trying to make sure I was okay. I think that’s important and, I’m fine. I’m here now to talk. I’m sorry if I hurt anybody’s feelings, but I think that’s part of the game. You have to make sure that your health is okay and continue on from there.”
Reading the quote is one thing but when listening to him answer that question you can hear a little bit of frustration in the tone of Jones’ voice. Understanding that Jones is now in his second season as the signal caller, Patriots fans should be thrilled that Jones is starting to show more and more attitude as he understands how high the bar is set here in New England. Jones is still expected to start this week against the Steelers in Pittsburgh.
