Report that Mac Jones was “highly unlikely” to play Sunday despite entering the day with a questionable mark, they have been confirmed as the Patriots quarterback is officially inactive for New England’s matchup against the Browns.

Rookie Bailey Zappe will make his second straight start for the Patriots as Jones recovers from a high ankle sprain suffered in the fourth quarter of New England’s Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

Jones made some easy throws with Zappe on the field before Sunday’s game, according to the Boston Globe’s Jim McBride. He didn’t do any stretching or jogging before he was officially ruled out.

Jones reportedly made significant progress during the week in terms of his mobility, but was ultimately unable to return in time for New England’s Week 6 matchup.

His next chance to return to action will be next Monday night when the Patriots host the Bears.
