New York Giants midfielder Daniel Jones has been injured in recent days.
The Duke alum is in the first year of his advanced contract, with his performance in 2023 leaving much to be desired.
Jones and the rest of the Giants started the season with a 2-5 record, a far cry from playoff form.. In this article, we give you an update on Jones’ injury as well as his return date.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Josh Alper, Daniel Jones has missed the last two games with a neck injury and his condition was unchanged on Monday.
This is bad news for the New York Giants, as Jones plays a vital role in their style of play.. The former Duke University shooting guard had a telepathic connection with Saquon Barkley, and that connection has been broken in recent weeks.
Additionally, without Jones, the majority of the Giants’ offense now belongs to former top-5 pick Barkley..
Daniel Jones suffered a neck injury in the franchise’s Week 5 game against the Miami Dolphins.
The Giants lost that game and Jones has not pitched since.
In his place, backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor started.. Taylor was solid against the Washington Commanders, throwing two touchdowns in their Week 7 win over the Commanders.
Jones enters the 2023 NFL season with high expectations after a strong 2022 season where he led the Giants to their first playoff berth as a starter.
However, the Giants were a complete disappointment, and to make matters worse, Jones was injured all season.
At this time, it is unclear when Jones will return to action.. Since his injury, he has barely been seen around the Giants’ practice facility..
Luckily for the Giants, backup Taylor has impressed over the past two weeks, so there’s no rush to get the franchise QB back on the field.
To support this notion, Giants coach Brian Daboll said in a video conference with reporters that he had “no updates” to share on Jones’ condition.. It’s not expected that Jones will be able to play a role in the Giants’ Week 8 contest against the New York Jets.
