AP source: Giants’ Jones has neck injury, may miss next game
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation has told The Associated Press that New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has a neck injury and his status for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins is uncertain.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the Giants have not released their injury report and the team had the day off. The person said Jones’ name will be on the report on Wednesday.
NFL Network was first to report the injury.
Coach Joe Judge is scheduled to talk to reporters on Wednesday morning.
Jones has started every game this season for the Giants (4-7). He was 19 of 30 for 202 yards and a touchdown against the Eagles in a 13-7 win on Sunday.
Jones played every offensive snap against Philadelphia and did not appear to be injured on any play. He spoke with reporters after the game and showed no sign of injury.
Jones, the No. 6 pick overall in 2019, is having his best season. He is 232 of 361 for 2,428 yards and 10 touchdowns. He is hitting 64.3% of his passes and has seven interceptions. He also is second on the team in rushing with 298 yards on 62 carries.
The running has led to Jones taking a few big hits because he does not slide much. He suffered a concussion against Dallas on Oct. 10 trying to score on a bootleg on third down from the Dallas 1.
If he were unable to play, veteran Mike Glennon would start. He replaced Jones against Dallas and completed 16 of 25 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown.
