New England Patriots QB Mac Jones has once again made the headlines for a rather-controversial play.
The Alabama product was caught on video punching New York Jets CB Sauce Gardner in the groin.
Gardner later shoved Jones onto the ground.
At first glance, it seemed like the Jets DB had taken an uncalled-for shot at Jones, but upon further review, it became blatantly evident that Jones had instigated him.
However, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that the league won’t suspend the Patriots star for the apparent cheap shot.
#Patriots QB Mac Jones isn’t expected to be suspended for allegedly cup-checking #Jets CB Sauce Gardner in Sunday’s game.
Jones said Monday nothing was intentional. The NFL reviews all plays and it’s possible, though not certain, that Jones could be fined.

Pelissero stated that it’s still possible, although not likely, that the league will fine Jones for his involvement in yet another potentially dirty play.
Despite being in the NFL for just two seasons and three games, Jones has been tangled up in several questionable actions.
From tripping to shoving and pushing, he’s earned a bad rap around the league, up to the point where several NFL players took to social media to call him out for another potentially dirty play and point out that it’s not the first time it has happened.
Jones denied any wrongdoing or bad intention, stating that it was an unfortunate accident as he was trying to get back to the huddle.
It might come to a point where the league will have no choice but to discipline him in any way if this keeps happening.
