You can't even make this stuff up. Quarterback Daniel Jones has been working his tail off to return from a neck injury, but now it's a knee issue that has everyone who loves the NY Giants quite nervous. Moments ago, Jones went down with a no-contact injury.
First, he fell to the turf after some pressure came in from Maxx Crosby. Then on the next time he dropped back, Jones collapsed to the turf, untouched. He was able to limp off the field, but then made his way to the locker room gingerly after being checked in the blue tent. This is terrible news for the Giants and their $160 million QB:
Daniel Jones suffering a knee injury for the Giants feels like rock bottom
How much adversity does Brian Daboll and this team have to try and overcome? Jones was struggling a little bit in the first half throwing the ball, missing Jalin Hyatt on two deep balls that would have been monster gains for the G-Men.
Both attempts fell to the turf. Before the Giants could even get to the locker room for halftime, Danny Dimes suffered his concerning-looking injury and rookie signal-caller Tommy DeVito came in to take over the offense.
Tyrod Taylor was just placed on Injured Reserve on Sunday, meaning he'll be out for at least three more games following Sunday's showdown with the Raiders. If Jones' injury is as bad as it looks, then it will be on DeVito to try and get this offense moving. However, we don't even want to think about that right now.
The thought of Jones missing even more action is brutal for this offense. Jones showcased how great he can be in the postseason win over the Vikings last winter and he no question gives this team their best chance to win when he's healthy and throwing the ball. Fans can only hope good injury news comes in on him, but people aren't feeling overly optimistic.
