According to the NFL Network’s Mike Giardi, Pats quarterback Mac Jones is dealing with numbness in the toes on his left foot as he continues to recover from the high left ankle sprain that sidelined him for three weeks.

Jones did take the majority of starting reps in all three practices this week and was removed from the team’s injury report Wednesday. But, Giardi reports, Bears coaches and players noticed last Monday in their 33-14 win at Foxboro that Jones seemed to be impacted by the injury.

It’s unclear if or how the numbness has affected him on the field. High ankle sprains typically require four to six weeks of recovery, but the after effects can be felt for much longer, depending on how severely the tendons attaching the ankle to the lower-leg bones have been strained or torn.
