The New York Giants are just one game out of the final playoff spot in the NFC, yet may not have their starting quarterback for a few weeks. Per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Daniel Jones suffered a neck strain in Sunday’s win over the Philadelphia Eagles and is considered “week-to-week.” If Jones is sidelined, backup quarterback Mike Glennon is expected to start in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins

That said, head coach Joe Judge didn’t officially rule Jones out when he spoke to reporters on Wednesday. 

“We’re not going to rule anything out right now,” said Judge. “Daniel is going to be out here practicing with us today and expect him to practice tomorrow and Friday as well. We’ll see what he can do. It’s like any kind of injury coming out of a game, we’ll just see how it goes.” 

Jones’ injury occurred on the second play from scrimmage, per Pelissero, when he got hit as he slid during a quarterback keeper. He finished the game going 19 of 30 for 202 yards and a touchdown while not having an interception or a fumble in the game for the first time since Week 7. This season, he’s completed 64.3% of his passes for 2,428 yards with 10 touchdowns to seven interceptions for an 84.8 passer rating this season, only missing significant snaps in a Week 5 loss to the Dallas Cowboys due to a concussion. Glennon filled in for Jones during that game, going 16 of 25 for 196 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. 

Pelissero reported Tuesday that the Giants are signing Jake Fromm off the Buffalo Bills practice squad, giving the team more depth at the position in the wake of Jones’ injury.
