“Danny Dimes” will be “Danny Sidelines” this weekend.
The Giants are expected to turn to quarterback Mike Glennon to start this weekend vs. the Dolphins, with Daniel Jones dealing with a neck injury he sustained during Week 12.
With Jones missing this weekend’s game, it will be the first game he’ll miss in 2021: He suffered a concussion vs. the Cowboys in Week 5, but returned in Week 6 after clearing protocol.
Now, Glennon is reportedly going to make his first start of the season in Jones’ absence while the starter nurses his neck back to health. Here’s the latest on Jones’ injury:
Daniel Jones injury update
Jones is currently dealing with a neck strain per reports, and the Giants declared him out on Friday. The hope is that Jones will only miss 1-to-2 weeks with the injury.
New York Daily News Giants beat writer Pat Leonard reports that Jones is considered week-to-week with the injury.
On the second play of the Giants’ Week 12 divisional matchup vs. the Eagles, Jones was hit while he was sliding, but he remained in the game. Jones would finish 19-of-30 passing for 202 yards and didn’t turn the ball over in the win.
In response to the injury, backup QB Mike Glennon is expected to start, per reports. The Giants also signed quarterback Jake Fromm off of the Bills practice squad, as well.
In an up-and-down season, Jones has thrown 2,428 yards on 64.1 percent completion rate, with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions to pair with it. The third-year QB also has five lost fumbles on the season.
