New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has been nursing a neck injury for a significant period of time. Despite this injury, he joined the team on their road trip. However, recent developments have some Giants fans worrying about the severity of Jones’ neck ailment.
After the Giants’ loss to the Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi Stadium, Jones left the team to return to New York. The reason? According to ProFootballTalk, the quarterback will get his neck injury checked again and see how it’s been healing.
“Jones has an appointment with Dr. Frank Cammisa from the Hospital for Special Surgery on Monday. Jones will undergo an MRI and another examination of his neck strain to determine how the healing is going.”
Jones suffered his neck injury during the Giants’ 13 – 7 win against the Philadelphia Eagles. In his place, backup Mike Glennon has been starting for the team, and it hasn’t been going well. The team has lost its last two games to the Miami Dolphins and the Chargers. If the team wants to have a shot at making the NFC playoffs, they will likely need Jones to return.
However, that doesn’t mean the Giants will try to rush Daniel Jones back from his injury. Joe Judge and the front office are being cautious with the quarterback’s injury, as reaggravating this injury can be devastating. That is why the team has decided to send back Jones to New York to determine whether he’s fit to play.
With the season all but lost, it’s perhaps in the Giants’ best interests to sit Jones out for the season. Keeping him healthy is important, whether they think he’s the franchise quarterback of the team or not.
