According to Jimmy Stewart on the Felger and Mazz show, he got information from a source inside the Patriots that Mac Jones has been playing through three injuries - a left knee injury (which we already know he has been dealing with all year), his left hand (hence the glove), and his throwing shoulder which Stewart's source said it was the same thing Garoppolo suffered while he was starting for Brady (which is an AC joint sprain although Jimmy G's was on his non-throwing shoulder).

Take it for what it is worth.

He doesn't run into unnecessary hits like Jimmy does, right? At least that's something.

He sort of does - but he's not quite as bold now as he was back at the beginning of the season in that area. Hoping this rookie season (and the advice from around the locker room) helped him learn to focus a little more on self-preservation.

Well. Oddly, it makes me feel better about Mac. And I already am convinced he is the chosen one.

As long as he doesn't end up going the Jimmy G path of annual injuries.

Brady was injured most years. We hear stories after the fact of how he was so injured that he would need help putting on and taking off his shoulder pads. We know in the 2007 season, his ankle sprain was far worse than he let on at the time.

Many QBs are consistently injured. The good ones play through the injuries. The average and mediocre ones are constantly taking time off because of them. I doubt there is a QB who goes an entire year without dealing with something.

If true Mac is a tough SOB to play through it. Doesn’t paint Jimmy in a good light if they had the same injury.

Jimmy's was in his non-throwing shoulder while Mac's is in his throwing shoulder (again, if true). But Jimmy G already looks like a wimp who has trouble playing through injuries. The fact that he was a last minute scratch in the Bills game showed that the Patriots thought he should have played through it. I know Brady would have. Looks like Mac would have too.

This explains the bad 6 recent weeks since the Bye. But at the same time it's also possible in parallel Mac is still regressing due to crappy oc coaching.

I wonder which game/play it was where the crappy oc play calling and O-Line management led to Mac taking a big hit to his throwing shoulder.

Agreed. If this is true, I like Mac even more. Didn't think that was possible!

First, not believing anyone associated with that show has a “source inside the Patriots.”

Second, if he has an AC joint sprain as
bad as Jimmy G did and the Pats didn’t put him on the injury report, the league would have a real problem with it.

Mac took a beating early in the year. I'm amazed he didn't miss any games.

A lot of that beating was probably on him not properly setting the protection, and those 10-step drops (yeesh!).

Now I want to really look closely at the game before the 3-pass Buffalo game. Wonder if he was hurt that game and thus contributed to the 46-run Buffalo game plan. At the time I had a time time believing the crappy spread shotgun oc would ever do something like that, and a Mac shoulder injury would explain a lot here

The Pats hid injuries for Brady all the time. Teams get caught not reporting injuries for QBs all the time. After this season, I guarantee you there will be at least several big name players throughout the league who will get surgery for injuries they got during the season that never appeared on the injury report. It happens every offseason.

And I am convinced that Brady and a lot of QBs wouldn't have even missed any time if they had what Garoppolo had. My guess is Brady would have been out on the field the next play after spraining his AC joint. So would Roethlisberger (although Ben would play to crowd how he was playing injured). Mahomes played the Super Bowl with turf toe that required surgery right after the Super Bowl. So he probably would have played too.

Plus, just because Jones had an AC joint sprain doesn't mean it was as severe as Garoppolo had.

Doubt it. Probably just speculation.

I doubt Mac would play at all if he had an injury that was impacting his game and this wouldn’t be the first time we’d hear about it either.
