Giants shut down Daniel Jones for season with neck injury
The New York Giants are shutting down Daniel Jones for the remainder of the season because of a sprained neck.
Coach Joe Judge said Monday the team's medical staff reviewed Jones' medical scans over the past 24 hours and determined it would be best if he did not play in the team's final three games.
The doctors have said Jones only needs rest at this point to get over the injury. Surgery is not an option at this point, Judge said, adding the injury is nothing more than a sprained neck.
Jones, the No. 6 overall pick in 2019, was hurt on Nov. 28 in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium. The injury was diagnosed after the game.
The Giants (4-10) will face the Eagles on Sunday in Philadelphia. Judge said either veteran Mike Glennon or Jake Fromm would start.
Glennon has started the past three games with Jones out. New York has lost all three, including a 21-6 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Fromm made his NFL regular-season debut on the Giants' final series and moved the team 84 yards before the drive ended on downs at the Cowboys 9.
Jones finished the season 232 of 361 for 2,428 yards, 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also ran for 298 yards, although he sustained a concussion near the goal line on an attempt against Dallas on Oct. 10. He started the next game.
