Daniel Jones To Miss Time?

The Giants are in the lead in the NFC East thanks to a tiebreaker over Washington, but they picked up a big injury during Sunday’s win over the Bengals when starting quarterback Daniel Jones went down.

Jones has a hamstring injury that is believed to be “pretty bad,” a source told Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. Raanan adds that it could force him to miss some time, and if it’s actually “pretty bad,” that would almost certainly be the case. Jones will go for an MRI on Monday that will tell the full story. A hamstring injury is especially tough for Jones since his mobility is a huge part of his game.

The Giants have frequently used his legs to help spark the offense this season, and he already has 403 rushing yards on the year. He’s been active as a runner in pretty much every game, and his passing numbers would likely look a lot worse if he didn’t have that scrambling ability. The second-year pro struggled mightily early in the year but had been a bit better recently, with no interceptions in his past three games.

The sixth overall pick of the 2019 draft has eight touchdowns and nine picks through the air. If he has to miss any games, Colt McCoy will take over as the starter. He’s in his first year with the team and doesn’t have much of a relationship with OC Jason Garrett, so things could get rough. New York has a tough schedule coming up, including a trip to Seattle to take on the Seahawks next week. We’ll keep you posted once we hear more on the situation.

    Okay weird idea but, Bring in Josh Rosen he has some people to prove, plus he has been learning under Brady all year. I feel he would bring more fire and energy than Colt would.

    • NFL trade deadline was November 3rd. They can’t ‘bring in’ Rosen since he’s on the Bucs.

        He’s on the bucs p squad, can’t you sign players from others teams practice squads? I too wouldn’t mind this if possible

          You can, but only if they are directly assigned to the new teams 53 man roster. Also teams can protect up to 4 players on their practice squad that cannot be signed by other teams.

      Colt did look dead in the water yesterday. I was not expecting that. I thought he would be tremendously passionate like he was with Washington when playing on Thanksgiving

        I think this week he’ll look a little better since he knows he’s starting and can prepare. Hard when you go in cold and haven’t taken a game time snap all year.

    I’m irrationally confident if McCoy has to take over for a few games . It probably will Three more wins to take the division . I think McCoy can manage the game well enough. The giants oline and running game has looked a lot better and the defense is making big plays .

        Honestly it might be best to trade him in the off season. Sign a solid number 2 and roll with Wayne gallman. The saqoun money could be used to sign a starter or 2 on either side of the ball.
