NY Giants QB Daniel Jones will undergo an MRI on his injured right hamstring
NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones will undergo an MRI Monday to determine the severity of a right hamstring injury suffered in Sunday’s 19-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, and how long he might be out.
“I’ll look to recover as quick as I can,” Jones said after the game. “I’m certainly not discouraged. It’s tough to tell exactly what it is right now. We’ll get back, examine it, and I’m excited to get the win and be a part of that.”
The Giants’ victory over the Bengals, which lifts New York into first place in the NFC East standings came at a price.
In the third quarter of Sunday’s game, 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.
“Just felt it on that play,” Jones said of the injury. “I didn’t feel like I could run on it really or do what I needed to do to be effective and move the ball and throw accurately. I just look to rehab it, do whatever I can to heal up as fast as I can.”
Giants head coach Joe Judge says he is “optimistic” that Jones will be able to play next Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, but will not make any determinations until after the team gets results of the MRI and other tests Jones will undergo.
“We’ll take a look and see what it is,” Judge said. “He’s got to see the doctors, have an MRI, and that’s standard procedure.”
Jones completed 16-of-27 passes for 213 yards and an 84.3 passer rating. Colt McCoy came on in relief of Jones, and McCoy is the only other quarterback on the Giants’ 53-man roster.
