After benching Mac Jones for Bailey Zappe in a loss to Chicago, the Patriots will start Jones on Sunday against the New York Jets.
According to Mark Daniels of Massachusetts Live, Bill Belichick told reporters that Jones took the full workload in Wednesday’s practice. He expects him to be fully available and ready to go for the matchup.
