NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones suffered an injury in Sunday’s game against the Bengals
NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones went down with what appears to be a right hamstring injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Jones went down and grabbed his right hamstring, two plays after landing rather awkwardly on a seven-yard run. On the ensuing play, Jones didn’t try to run for a first-down, despite appearing to have a running lane in front of him.
After walking off the field under his own power, Jones immediately went into the blue medical tent on the Giants’ sideline while receiving the attention of the team’s medical staff.
Colt McCoy came on in relief of Jones with just under 9:00 remaining in the third quarter and finished a drive that was capped by Graham Gano’s 22nd consecutive made field goal.
At the time of his injury, Jones had completed 16-of-26 passing attempts for 213 yards against the Bengals.
Jones returned to the field on the Giants’ next possession for two plays, before grabbing his hamstring and hobbling off the field after a passing attempt where it looked like he couldn’t drive off the back leg.
McCoy is the only quarterback other than Jones on the active roster for Sunday’s game.
