Plan Is For Daniel Jones To Be Fully Cleared For Training Camp

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee), who is returning from a torn ACL that he suffered in 2023, told reporters on Monday that the plan is for him to be fully cleared for training camp this summer. Jones has not had any setbacks since undergoing surgery on Nov. 22 to fix his right ACL tear. The 26-year-old also said the neck injury he dealt with last year before hurting his knee is in the rearview mirror. Despite the fact that the Giants are considering drafting another QB at the end of this month, they continue to say that Jones will be the unquestioned starter under center when he returns from his knee injury. Although Jones had a career year in 2022, plenty of questions remain as to whether he can repeat that performance, especially now that running back Saquon Barkley is no longer in town. Consider him a low-upside QB2 with more question marks coming off a serious knee injury.

Daniel Jones Not Guaranteed To Be Ready For Week 1

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said there's no guarantee that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) will be ready for Week 1, but Daboll said "when he gets back, he'll be the guy." The Giants are sticking with Jones as their starter, but he's coming off a torn right ACL in 2023 and might not be ready to go for the start of the 2024 season this fall. The 26-year-old had a career year in Daboll's first season as head coach in 2022, but Jones disappointed behind a terrible offensive line last year before blowing his knee out. Jones resumed throwing in early February and could take part in 7-on-7 drills this spring, but it appears now there's a chance that Drew Lock could be under center for the G-Men in Week 1. Jones is only one year into his four-year, $160 million extension and the Giants could be forced to move on if he doesn't improve in 2024.

Daniel Jones Has Been Throwing

New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen said that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) started stationary throwing two weeks ago, and the team thinks he could do 7-on-7 work this spring. Jones is currently on track to be ready for the start of training camp this summer. "I have faith in Daniel (Jones) as our starting quarterback," Schoen said. Despite Jones tearing his ACL last year, the Giants continue to put their faith in him as their starter going into the 2024 season, although they won't hesitate to add a QB in the upcoming NFL draft if the situation presents itself. The 27-year-old signed a four-year, $160 million extension before the 2023 season looked pretty bad behind an atrocious offensive line last season before his injury. If Jones struggles again early in 2024, the Giants could be looking to move on from him sooner than later.

Daniel Jones Says Rehab Is Going Well

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) said his rehab from a torn right ACL is "going well." Jones tore his ACL on Nov. 5 and missed the rest of the year. "I'm making progress. I'm three months into it, and I've started running on the anti-gravity treadmill. It's going well," Jones said. The 26-year-old former sixth overall pick in 2019 out of Duke played in just six games in 2023 after signing a four-year, $160 million contract extension last offseason. The Giants are hoping he'll stay healthy in 2024 and bounce back while costing $47 million against the salary cap. They continue to say that they are committed to him as their starter under center, but if he disappoints again in 2024, they could decide to move on quickly. Jones' rushing ability helps his fantasy cause, but overall he has a low fantasy ceiling as a QB2.

Giants Reiterate That Daniel Jones Is Their Starter

New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen reiterated on Tuesday that the plan is for quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) to be the starter entering training camp this summer. However, Schoen didn't rule out the team drafting another quarterback this year -- they have the sixth overall pick in the first round. The Giants signed Jones to a four-year, $160 million extension last offseason but he played in just six games in 2023 before suffering a season-ending torn ACL in his right knee. The 26-year-old wasn't good in his six games, either, going 108-for-160 for 909 yards (5.7 yards per attempt), two touchdowns and six interceptions. In Jones' defense, the Giants' offensive line was among the worst in the league. Barring a setback, Jones should be ready for the start of the 2024 regular season, but at best, he'll be a QB2 for fantasy managers with limited upside coming off a major injury.

Daniel Jones Expects To Be Ready For Training Camp

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) said he's continuing to rehab his knee and plans to be ready to play by the start of training camp. Jones tore his ACL in early November, ending his season. Giants' GM Joe Schoen noted that the team plans to continue to build around Jones, but understands that he may not be ready to play in Week 1. The Giants own the sixth-overall pick in the NFL Draft and may use that asset to select another franchise quarterback.

Daniel Jones Hopes To Return For Start Of Training Camp

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) said that his goal is to be back for the start of training camp next summer. Jones will miss the rest of the year after suffering a torn right ACL in Week 9, but the good news is that he didn't have any other structural damage other than to his ACL. The 26-year-old has a long and grueling recovery ahead of him, but the Giants remain committed to him as their starter once he's back healthy next fall. Jones had the best season of his career in the first year working with head coach Brian Daboll in 2022 and even led the G-Men to a postseason win, but he regressed this year, completing 67.5% of his 160 attempts for 909 yards, only two touchdowns and six interceptions in six starts. Jones won't be very attractive as a low-end QB2 target in fantasy in 2024 while coming off a major knee injury.

Giants Expected To Stick With Daniel Jones

New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen said that the expectation is that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) will be the team's starting quarterback when he is healthy. It won't stop team brass from addressing the QB room in free agency or the draft, though. Schoen mentioned that veteran Tyrod Taylor (ribs) is a pending free agent and undrafted rookie Tommy Devito is under contract. Jones is facing an eight- to 10-month recovery after having surgery to fix a torn right ACL on Nov. 22. The 26-year-old had a disastrous 2023 campaign before suffering a season-ending ACL injury, and he also missed some time with a neck ailment. A terrible and beat up offensive line didn't help, but aside from his rushing ability, Jones hasn't shown much as a passer outside of his solid 2022 season.

Daniel Jones Facing 8-10 Months Of Recovery Following Surgery

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) had successful surgery on Wednesday to fix a torn ACL in his right knee and is now facing eight to 10 months of recovery. The surgery was performed by team physician Dr. Scott Rodeo in New York. Jones' recovery timetable will take him right up to the start of training camp next summer. The 26-year-old's season didn't go as planned after signing a four-year, $160 million deal earlier in the year, and he's due another $35.5 million in guaranteed pay in 2024. Jones had just two touchdowns and six interceptions in six games while being sacked 30 times, and he also missed some time with a neck injury. The G-Men will be hoping he can bounce back in 2024 after a career-best campaign in 2022, although he may never be more than a low-upside QB2 in fantasy. Rookie Tommy Devito will continue to lead the Giants offense moving forward.

Daniel Jones To Have ACL Repaired Wednesday

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) told Kay Adams that he will have surgery in New York on Wednesday to fix the torn ACL that he suffered in the Week 9 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. Jones said that Wednesday was the best time for the procedure and that he'll have plenty of football to watch as he recovers. He played in six games in 2023 before his season-ending knee injury and also dealt with a neck injury before tearing his ACL. Veteran backup Tyrod Taylor (ribs) is on Injured Reserve and may not make it back this year either, leaving third-stringer and undrafted rookie Tommy Devito as the starter under center. Jones completed a career-high 67.5% of his passes for 909 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions in his six starts this year.

Giants Confirm Torn ACL For Daniel Jones

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll confirmed on Monday that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) suffered a torn right ACL during the Week 9 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. In his first game back after missing three games with a neck injury, Jones' right knee buckled in a non-contact injury, ending his 2023 season. After he put up the best season of his career in 2022, the 26-year-old will end this year with a career-high 67.5 completion percentage on only 160 pass attempts for 909 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions in six games played. The injury comes after he signed a four-year, $160 million extension back in March with $35.5 million guaranteed next year. Veteran Tyrod Taylor (ribs) missed Week 9 due to injury and could remain out moving forward, so the G-Men may have no choice but to roll with undrafted rookie Tommy Devito until Taylor is healthy again.

Daniel Jones Believed To Have Suffered Torn ACL

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) is believed to have suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's meeting with the Las Vegas Raiders. The oft-injured signal-caller, who returned for this one after being sidelined for weeks with a neck issue, didn't last long before going down with a non-contact injury. He could be done for the season, assuming an upcoming MRI confirms the diagnosis, especially since the Giants aren't looking like a postseason team. As a result, Tommy Devito, who was 15-for-20 passing for 175 yards, a touchdown, and two picks in Week 9, is in line to start moving ahead. However, with Tyrod Taylor (ribs) on injured reserve, the Giants may look to bring someone in from the outside.

Daniel Jones Ruled Out In Week 9

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) won't return to Sunday's game against the Raiders. The veteran signal-caller, who returned for this one after missing time with a neck issue, appeared to suffer a non-contact knee injury. However, the Giants haven't released any more information, so Jones may be undergoing extensive testing to determine the severity of the injury. With Tyrod Taylor (ribs) on injured reserve, the Giants hope Jones can play in Week 10 versus the Dallas Cowboys. Unfortunately, things aren't looking good, meaning Tommy Devito would be under center. But given DeVito's struggles, New York may look for alternate options. Either way, the situation isn't ideal for any of the Giants' pass-catchers. It's also not welcome news for Saquon Barkley, with the oft-injured running back in line to get more touches potentially.

Daniel Jones Suffers Potential Knee Injury In Week 9

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) exited the Week 9 meeting with the Raiders. The signal-caller, who has been out since injuring his neck in Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins, suffered a knee injury early in the second quarter. But considering he went down with a non-contact injury, Jones may be dealing with something serious. Nevertheless, Tommy Devito is in under center, potentially for the remainder of the contest. If that's the case, Jones will finish with 25 yards off 4-for-9 passing.

Daniel Jones A QB2 In Return To Starting Lineup

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) has been cleared to return and will be the starting quarterback once again in Week 9 against the Las Vegas Raiders. It will be his first game action since Week 5. The former first-round pick was having a rough year statistically before the injury and will now be without his top receiving option, tight end Darren Waller (hamstring). His offensive line, however, is recovering. Tackles Andrew Thomas (hamstring) and Evan Neal (ankle) could return to the lineup as well. The Raiders are one of the better pass defenses in football and they routinely get beat through the ground game. Jones is no better than a middling QB2 for Week 9.

Daniel Jones Doesn't Carry Injury Designation Into Week 9

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) is officially off the Week 9 injury report on Friday and will play on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders. Jones will be returning under center for the G-Men after missing the last three games. Meanwhile, backup Tyrod Taylor (ribs) has been ruled out. It means that Tommy Devito, who was forced into action in the Week 8 overtime loss to the New York Jets, will likely serve as Jones' backup this Sunday. The 26-year-old Jones hasn't been helped by an ineffective and beat up offensive line this year, but he could be getting tackles Andrew Thomas (hamstring) and Evan Neal (ankle) back from injuries this weekend. Jones has a fine matchup against Vegas in his return, but he'll also be without tight end Darren Waller (hamstring). Consider Jones as a QB2 with some upside in Week 9.

Daniel Jones Practicing In Full Thursday

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's injury report after being officially limited on Wednesday. Head coach Brian Daboll said on Wednesday that Jones has no limitations and is good to go for Week 9 against the Las Vegas Raiders after missing the last three games. It's good timing, too, as backup Tyrod Taylor (ribs) has already been ruled out after suffering a rib injury in the Week 8 overtime loss to the New York Jets. The Giants haven't officially named Jones as the starter for Sunday's game, but that's the way it's trending right now. If the 26-year-old is back under center, he'll be without one of his top aerial targets in tight end Darren Waller (hamstring). Jones will be in play in two-QB superflex leagues again if he starts.

Daniel Jones Practicing Without Limitations

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said that quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) is practicing on Wednesday without any limitations and is good to go heading into a Week 9 game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Jones has missed the last three games but was cleared for contact on Sunday and is trending toward making his return in Week 9. Backup Tyrod Taylor (ribs) also suffered a rib injury in the Week 8 overtime loss to the New York Jets that sent him to the hospital for the night. The 26-year-old Jones hasn't looked great this year, but he should be an upgrade over Taylor now that he's moving past his neck injury. The G-Men have a good matchup against the Raiders defense this week, but Jones coming off injury should be considered a midrange QB2, at best, if he's active.

Daniel Jones Expected To Practice Wednesday

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said that quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) is expected to practice on Wednesday after being cleared for contact on Sunday morning. After missing the last three games, Jones is now set to return for a Week 9 contest versus the Las Vegas Raiders. It's good timing, as backup Tyrod Taylor (ribs) was injured in the 13-10 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday. All of New York's offensive weapons should get a slight boost with Jones trending toward a return in Week 9, especially tight end Darren Waller. The 26-year-old Jones has completed a career-high 68.9 percent of his 151 pass attempts through five games for 884 yards, but with only two touchdowns and six interceptions. He'll have a nice matchup to return to against the Raiders if he's active.

Daniel Jones Cleared For Contact

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) has been cleared for contact and is now in line to return to the starting lineup on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Giants' starter was actually given clearance prior to Sunday's loss to the Jets but the team decided to keep him on the sidelines anyway. With Tyrod Taylor (ribs) in the hospital with his injury, Jones' clearance could not have come at a better time. The 26-year-old spent the last three games in street clothes while experiencing weakness and pain on his left side. He's thrown for 884 yards, two touchdowns, and six interceptions through five games.
