New York Giants head coach Joe Judge advised reporters Thursday the standing of beginning quarterback Daniel Jones for Sunday’s matchup on the Miami Dolphins might come all the way down to a game-time decision as Jones labored to get well from the strained neck he suffered in final Sunday’s win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
It seems Judge did not want to attend till the weekend.
As ESPN’s Jordan Raanan notes, Judge confirmed Friday that Jones will not play Sunday afternoon and will likely be changed by backup Mike Glennon. Jake Fromm, not too long ago signed off the apply squad of the Buffalo Bills, will likely be New York’s QB2 in Miami.
“At this point he has not been cleared for contact, so we’re going to go ahead and hold him out of this game,” Judge stated of Jones. “At this point, we don’t feel 100% comfortable with him until the medical team clears him fully, so as of right now we will rule him out.”
Judge claimed earlier this week Jones’ setback wasn’t thought-about season-ending at the moment.
“We will evaluate him for the future, including as soon next week, with the doctors,” Judge continued Friday. “We don’t have any answers as of yet.”
Glennon took the sector when Jones suffered a concussion within the Week 5 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 10 and accomplished 16-of-25 passes for 196 yards with a landing and two interceptions. It’s unknown if Judge and firm would need to get a have a look at Fromm later this month if Jones is sidelined past Sunday.
