Rookie Kyle Lauletta moved up one rung of the depth chart on Sunday, but he won’t be taking the next step this week.
In what’s become a weekly ritual for the 4-8 Giants, head coach Pat Shurmur said on Monday that Eli Manning will remain the starting quarterback in Week 14. The Giants will be in Washington next Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
Lauletta moved from the No. 3 quarterback spot to No. 2 on Sunday and was active for the first time this season.
“Behind the scenes he’s done a good job,’’ Shurmur said, via the New York Post. “He’s making progress here during the season and it’s just the next step for him.’’
Manning had a terrible first half of Sunday’s game against the Bears, but was sharper in the second half and threw a touchdown pass to Odell Beckham in the 30-27 overtime win. That win kept the Giants mathematically if not realistically alive in the playoff race and any change at quarterback seems likely to wait until a change on that front.
