Will Daniel Jones be able to suit up for the NY Giants this weekend after taking Week 6 off? That's the question Big Blue fans have on their minds, as the showdown with the Commanders is five days away. It goes without saying, but the G-Men are desperate for a win.
In order for NY to have its best shot to come away with a win, Danny Dimes is going to need to be on the field. No disrespect to Tyrod Taylor, but there's a reason Jones is QB1 for this squad. However, it's unknown if he'll be able to play or not.
While speaking with Kay Adams on Tuesday morning, Jones didn't give fans much hope that he's going to be close to 100 percent by Sunday. Matter of fact, his latest comments don't provide much optimism that he'll be cleared in time to suit up:
QB Daniel Jones doesn't sound confident he'll return for the Giants on Sunday
Yeah, this isn't great for Jones. It's one thing that he's still dealing with symptoms and discomfort in his neck, but it's also not inspiring news that he's trying to prove to the team doctors that he's feeling well enough to hit the practice field.
The Giants want to be careful with Jones and not rush him back too soon - don't forget they invested four years and $160 million into him this past offseason. Jones may be hungry to get back out there and help this team take down Washington, but the wise move could be to have him rest one more week.
While Taylor was far from perfect in Sunday night's loss to the Bills, he still tossed for 200 yards and made some big-time throws with the game on the line. Getting Jones back in time for the Commanders game would be huge for this offense, but as of right now, our gut tells us it will be Taylor to lead this offense out onto the MetField Stadium turf vs. Sam Howell and Co.
