NY Giants quarterback was carted into the locker room, following a scary helmet-to-helmet hit in the first quarter against the Dallas Cowboys
Daniel Jones struggled to walk off the field, and was eventually carted to the locker room following a nasty helmet-to-helmet hit in the first half of Sunday’s NY Giants game in Dallas against the Cowboys.
Jones, on a 4th down run, tried to scramble towards the end zone when he lowered his head and was met helmet-to-helmet by Cowboys defensive back Jabrill Cox. The Giants‘ quarterback hobbled momentarily before nearly collapsing and needing to be helped to the cart to go into the locker room.
The Giants scored a touchdown on the next play, tying the game at 10, but Jones’ long-term health is of far greater concern.
Jones getting knocked into the concussion protocol was a significant blow, especially after star running back Saquon Barkley was carted off the field in the first quarter with what appeared to be a significant ankle injury.
Prior to getting injured, Jones completed 5-of-13 passes for 98 yards against the Cowboys, and added three rushes for nine yards.
Veteran backup Mike Glennon replaced Jones at quarterback, and will likely be the NY Giants’ quarterback for the rest of the game.
