New York Giants QB Daniel Jones not cleared for contact, out vs. Miami Dolphins

The New York Giants are having a rough season and couldn’t afford to lose their most important player. After playing in the first four games of the year, Daniel Jones suffered an injury that will keep him out for two more weeks. The team signed Matt LaCosse as his replacement

The “daniel jones injury” is a story that has been making headlines. Daniel Jones, the New York Giants quarterback was not cleared for contact, and he will be out vs. Miami Dolphins.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — According to coach Joe Judge, the New York Giants will be without quarterback Daniel Jones for at least this Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.

After sustaining a neck injury in last week’s triumph against the Philadelphia Eagles, Jones is yet to be cleared for contact. Jones was thought to have been hurt when running the ball on the second play, but he said that he didn’t feel uncomfortable until after the game.

Throughout the week, as a restricted noncontact player, he was moving and throwing well.

“He hasn’t been cleared for contact at this moment, so we’re going to keep him out of this game,” Judge said. “At this time, we don’t feel 100 percent comfortable with him until the medical staff has cleared him completely, so we’ll rule him out for now.”

Jones will be replaced by Mike Glennon. Glennon will be backed up by Jake Fromm, who was signed off the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad this week by the Giants.

“I was hoping for a chance all week,” Glennon said.

In his first season as a starter with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2020, Glennon finished 0-5 with the team. His most recent victory as a starting quarterback came with the Chicago Bears in 2017.

Jones didn’t get many, if any, first-team repetitions at Thursday’s practice, according to ESPN sources. As a result, the Giants have been planning for this possibility.

On Monday, he will be re-examined. Jones will go with the Giants to Miami and then to Arizona, where they will train next week before facing the Los Angeles Chargers the following Sunday.

The third-year quarterback is not expected to miss the rest of the season, according to Judge. Even if there is doubt, he underlined that on Friday.

“We’ll examine him for the future, including with the physicians as soon as next week,” Judge stated. “As of now, we don’t have any answers [as to when he’ll be cleared].”

Three years into Jones’ career, the Giants (4-7) are still trying to figure out what they have in him. After firing offensive coordinator Jason Garrett last week and some of their key playmakers being healthy, this stretch run was intended to bring more clarity.

Instead, the Giants’ quarterback and several of his playmakers are sitting on the bench. Kadarius Toney (quad/oblique) and Sterling Shepard (quad) are classified as questionable wide receivers. Questionable players include wide receiver John Ross (illness/quad) and tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle).

“What [the timeframe] is [for Jones] has a lot of murky space.” “Really, there isn’t a definitive conclusion on that,” Judge remarked. “Obviously, we’ll strive to get him on the field as soon as he’s healthy and ready to play at this point.” He, too, wants to be on the field. He just hasn’t been cleared to make contact today.

“There are no answers right now about what it will look like in the next weeks or in future weeks down the road. Everything else would be speculative or guesswork at this point.”

Jones has been forced to miss a game late in the season for the third consecutive season. He lost time as a rookie due to a high ankle sprain and again in 2020 due to a hamstring issue.

Jones, 24, has thrown for 2,428 yards and 10 touchdowns while also throwing seven interceptions this season. He’s also ran for 298 yards and two scores on the ground.

In a blowout defeat to the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 10, Glennon, 31, completed 16-of-25 throwing for 196 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions.
