Daniel Jones gets brutally honest on the Giants’ injury woes

New York Giants, Daniel Jones

The New York Giants will be without multiple key contributors for their Week 7 clash with the Carolina Panthers.

Saquon Barkley (ankle), Kenny Golladay (knee) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) were all listed as out for this upcoming home matchup against Carolina. They each did not practice this week due to their respective injuries and thus, the Giants elected to rule them out for the contest.

The Giants were already dealt with concerning news earlier this week regarding their offensive unit, as offensive tackle Andrew Thomas (ankle) and wide receiver C.J. Board (fractured forearm) each were placed on injured reserve.

Amid the growing injury woes for the Giants on offense this season, quarterback Daniel Jones is still much confident in the unit.

In speaking ahead of the upcoming matchup with Carolina, Jones opened up on the next-man-up mentality that he has gone with as of late.

“It changes things up here and there and (it’s) tough to go without guys,” Jones said. “We’ve got guys who have stepped up and we’ve got guys who can make plays and guys who can do a lot of things, who bring a lot of different things to the table. It’s about playing to those strengths and I’m confident, and I think we’re confident as a group, that we’ll be able to perform.”

There is a possibility that wideouts Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard may also miss the contest with Carolina, as they each have been listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury.

Regardless of who will be available for Week 7, Jones sure will have much on his plate to help the Giants avoid a 1-6 start for the second consecutive season.
