The Giants have officially made the announcement that he will be the starter against the Washington Redskins, but all signs point towards him taking back the job.
Jones suffered an ankle injury week 13 and this is a good sign that the ankle is finally getting healthy enough to get back on the field.
The big question surronding the Giants now is if Jones does start the last two games, will we ever see Eli Manning back in the NFL.
Ernie Accorsi, who was the general manager of the Giants when they made a trade for Manning back in 2004 said he expects to see the future hall of famer back for another year next season.
“The one thing … about these guys that are able to be successful at the highest level, particularly a quarterback in football, is that whole makeup that they have,” said Accorsi, who was brought to tears by the farewell for Manning on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. “Sure, they have talent, and sure, they have ability, but that makeup that is the difference maker between the good ones and the great ones that win championships, all that, that doesn’t go away because Father Time catches up with you. You still have that, and you still do believe that.”
Manning currently sits with a .500 win percentage so if he does play another game he risks falling back below the .500 mark.
