The NFL has reviewed the incident involving New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones and has reached a decision regarding the accusation made by Sauce Gardner.
Gardner shared a video on Monday, showing the alleged incident. In the video, Gardner pushes Jones after he emerges from a scramble following a quarterback sneak during Sunday’s game. Gardner claims that Jones hit him in the groin area.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Mac Jones is not expected to be suspended as a result of the recent allegations made by New York Jets cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner. However, there is a possibility of a fine being imposed.
Several video clips have surfaced on social media, but none provide conclusive evidence of any egregious behavior from Jones.
During an appearance on “Jones & Mego” this week, the third-year quarterback stated that the incident was unintentional. This is not the first time Jones has faced accusations of dirty play. Last year, Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Eli Apple accused Jones of “dirty play” after he dove at his feet during an interception. Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay also took to social media, calling Jones “Dirty af!!”
The NFL fined Jones last year for the low hit on Apple and a separate unnecessary roughness penalty in the same game.
