Patriots quarterback Mac Jones will not be fined for his actions in last Sunday’s win over the Jets, according to a report Saturday from NFL Media.

The quarterback was involved in a dustup with New York cornerback Sauce Gardner late in the game, with Gardner claiming Jones hit him in the groin at the end of a play.

“Sauce is one of the best corners in the NFL,” Jones said on WEEI the day after the game. “I have a lot of respect for him. On that play, nothing was intentional. I just got up and went back to the huddle, and that’s it.”


While Jones wasn’t fined, two other Patriots weren’t so lucky. Safety Jabrill Peppers was fined $43,709 and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster $16,391 for unnecessary roughness against the Jets.
