You can be upset with Daniel Jones all you want for his inconsistent play in 2023, but no one ever wants to wish injury upon anyone. In Sunday's 31-16 NY Giants loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 5, Jones was sacked in fericious fashion by Miami's Andrew Van Ginkel.
Van Ginkel blew past Joshua Ezeudu on his way to rocking Danny Dimes. Jones has since been diagnosed with a neck injury, but it's unknown how serious it is. When watching this clip below, though, it's safe to assume that Jones is going to be sore and in pain for quite some time:
NY Giants fans are waiting for a positive injury update on Daniel Jones
Jones' neck indeed snapped back in a disturbing way. As soon as the former No. 6 overall pick took this shot, he was down on the turf for a little while and he had to be helped off the field. Eventually, Jones gingerly walked to the locker room and he underwent an X-ray.
The fifth-year signal-caller is set to undergo further testing this week. While Jones did tell head man Brian Daboll that he's going to be just fine, it was certainly concerning to see that the QB said this injury and the pain felt similar to how he felt in the 2021 season.
That year, Jones missed the final six games of the campaign and he underwent offseason surgery. With the Giants getting ready to take on the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night in primetime, no one knows if Jones will be able to take the field or not.
If he does, Daboll and offensive line coach Bobby Johnson are going to have come up with some sort of plan to keep Jones on his feet. They've failed him miserably throughout the 2023 campaign, which everyone saw on Sunday against the Dolphins. The Giants are doing a lousy job at protecting Jones and now his safety is at risk more than ever.
