NY Giants QB Daniel Jones will miss his third game of the season with Tyrod Taylor again starting in week 8 agains the New York Jets.

Giants head coach Brian Daboll has previously said Jones season is not over, but his answers on Friday have added an extra wrinkle in the QB situation.


Daniel Jones missed 6 games with a neck injury in 2021 before signing a big contract extension in the offseason, just one year after the Giants had declined his fifth year option. Given another neck injury there have to be questions about bringing Jones back too quickly.

Given that, Daboll’s responses to questions is a little interesting. Daboll said, “He’s getting better. We’ll see where he is next week. I don’t have a crystal ball with injuries. But he is getting better. Again, I just go with the information that I get. Today he was out. He’s getting better. We’ll see where he is next week.”

It’s hard to believe Daboll isn’t 100% on top of the situation with his starting QB. Jones is believed to be taking scout team reps, but is not cleared for contact.

The Giants would like to get Daniel Jones back quickly to try and change the course of their season, but given his injury history we could see this dragging on a few more weeks.
