Mac Jones won’t even be fined for ‘dirty play’ on Brian Burns

Mac Jones not fined for grabbing ankle of Brian Burns.
As Schefter notes in his tweet, Jones could have been provided a holding charge for the play in question. However, the on-field authorities did not do so.

Jones did state in an interview with WEEI on Monday that he believed Burns recuperated the fumble and he was trying to make the deal with. Burns did not have the ball, as linebacker Frankie Luvu was the one who recovered it.
Burns discussed the incident, saying that he had not spoken with or received an apology from the novice quarterback. The protective end stated he would like to get another chance at Jones this season (which would only take place if they meet in the Super Bowl), but he sent a message to his fellow protective linemen– “happy searching.”.
The first defensive lineman to take on against Jones considering that the ankle-grabbing incident is Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns. Garrett stated he saw the play however did not use any opinion on it. However, he did state that he does not understand if Jones will “turn into the ankle-grabber.”.

The New England Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers last week to move them into the playoff picture. Rather, it was quarterback Mac Jones getting and twisting the ankle of Panthers defensive end Brian Burns following a strip-sack. The first protective lineman to face off versus Jones given that the ankle-grabbing event is Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns. He did say that he does not know if Jones will “turn into the ankle-grabber.”.

Patriots QB Mac Jones was not fined for twisting the ankle and grabbing of Panthers DE Brian Burns. The action, which couldve been penalized for holding, did not rise to the level of a fine in the NFLs viewpoint.

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was not handed a fine by the NFL for a “dirty play” on Carolina Panthers protective end Brian Burns.
The New England Patriots beat the Carolina Panthers last week to propel them into the playoff picture. However that was not the story of the video game. Rather, it was quarterback Mac Jones getting and twisting the ankle of Panthers defensive end Brian Burns following a strip-sack. With Burns and others around the league calling it a “filthy play,” the NFL did not think that at all.
On Saturday, it was exposed by ESPN NFL expert Adam Schefter that Jones was not fined for the ankle grab. Per Schefter, the ankle twist “did not rise to the level of a fine in the NFLs opinion.”.
