Daniel Jones won’t play Sunday . . . unless he does.

A report Tuesday indicated the Giants quarterback won’t play against the Dolphins. Jones, though, was limited in Wednesday’s practice and neither he nor the team is ruling him out yet.

“I’m going through the week preparing to play and getting myself ready to play, listening to the trainers and doctors,” Jones said, via Zack Rosenblatt of nj.com. “My job is to be ready to play, so I’ll go through the week like I always do.”

Jones strained his neck on the second play against the Eagles, putting his availability for Week 13 in doubt. Odds still are good Mike Glennon gets the start, but Jones is trying to give it a go.

“I think there was obviously a series of tests and conversations with doctors,” Jones said. “I always understood it to be something I could recover from and get back out there.”

Giants coach Joe Judge said the plan is for Jones to practice all three days this week.

The Giants had eight players sit out Wednesday. Linebacker Trent Harris (ankle), fullback Cullen Gillaspia (calf), defensive back Adoree' Jackson (quad), receiver John Ross (illness), tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle), receiver Sterling Shepard (quad), tight end Kaden Smith (knee) and receiver Kadarius Toney (oblique/quad) did not practice.

  1. As a GIANTS Fan, I would actually like to see if Glennon could do anything with the Tools that are there.

    Jones looks nervous and scared back there.

  2. He was not a #6 pick. I was at Metlife Stadium at the draft party the year that Jones got drafted. When he was announced, the crowd let out a collective groan. Same as when we drafted Eli Apple.

  3. Get Wilson or anyone next year and draft a QB two years later. Go all in on defense next year with the draft. Am okay QB can win with a great defense. Even with a top pick your not gauranteed the guy will pan out.

  4. Doesn’t it seem like Jones would be a good pickup by the Steelers for next year? Like after the Giants sign Wilson?

  5. Until there is a O LINE NO QB has a chance back there.. You have Thomas at Left Tackle and the rest of the line you can substitute with cones,.. they are a revolving door..

  6. We know what Glennon is. Let’s face it, Jones will be the QB next year and they’ll draft OL with some of their high draft picks and we’ll kick the can down the road one more year with the “is Jones the guy” talk. No QB is gonna have success with that OL and all of his targets missing extended time.
