You've just got to feel for NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. He has been forced to play behind a make-shift offensive line, taking countless hits. On Sunday in the 31-16 loss to the Miami Dolphins, things finally reached a low point, as he was forced to leave the game early with a neck injury.
Jones missed the final six games of the 2021 season with a neck injury and ultimately he had offseason surgery. Jones was able to meet with the media not long after the final whistle against Miami, but fans are certainly going to be worried with the fact that Jones said his neck currently feels similar to how it did when he was injured two years ago. Yeah, this isn't good at all:
NY Giants offensive line is fully to blame for the Daniel Jones injury
Jones told head coach Brian Daboll that he was feeling okay when the two spoke after the game, but it's now completely up in the air if the former No. 6 overall pick will be able to play in primetime next Sunday night against the Buffalo Bills.
He underwent an X-ray on Sunday and he will go through some more testing on Monday, per Pat Leonard. If Jones is unable to play in Week 6, the Giants will turn the keys of the offense over to Tyrod Taylor, who closed things out in Week 5 at Miami.
Against the Dolphins, Jones was 14-of-20 for 119 yards before he went down with his injury. We hate to pile on the offensive line, but they certainly owe Jones an apology - once again - for their terrible play. With Andrew Thomas still not ready to return, Joshua Ezeudu got the start at LT and he was tough to watch.
Ezeudu left linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel blow by him on the play where Jones was sacked and injured. He was benched and Matt Peart took over. It doesn't matter who's at QB if the line doesn't do its job. With all the pressure Jones has faced, it felt like only a matter of time until something like this happened. Now, we must keep our fingers crossed that Danny Dimes won't be out for a long period of time.
