Giants quarterback Daniel Jones got more tests on his injured neck today, and the results indicate that he’s likely to miss another week.

Jones is unlikely to play on Sunday against the Chargers because of his neck injury, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Mike Glennon, who started yesterday’s loss to the Dolphins in place of Jones, is now in the concussion protocol and may not be able to play against the Chargers.

That would leave Jake Fromm, who just arrived last week off the Bills’ practice squad, the only healthy quarterback on the active roster. He would likely start against the Chargers, with Brian Lewerke likely to be promoted from the practice squad to the active roster to back him up, if both Jones and Glennon are ruled out.

  1. That’s a shame, Glennon was on point yesterday, very accurate against my Dolphins. I was a bit concerned actually.

    Saquan Barkley was the biggest reason that offense wasn’t scoring TDs. Sucks to say because I’m a fan of his bit that ship has sailed on him being an impact player in the NFL.

  2. Does it even matter who starts at QB? This team makes me want to reach for the bottle I gave up 10 year ago. This is Mara’s and Gettleman’s dumpster fire.

  3. I think the NY Football Giants will be looking for a new coach and a new starting QB in the off season.

  4. Gettleman oversold Saquon Barkley with his touched by the hand of God and future gold jacket malarkey. Unless Saquon was a cross between Walter Payton and Gale Sayers, Giants fans were going to be disappointed.

    Barkley at number 2 and Daniel Jones at number 6 have not been high impact players.

  5. Bostonblows, Mike Glennon is tough!! He doesn’t get nearly the respect he’s earned.

    We were at the Seahawks game a few years ago when he came in as backup vs. our Super Bowl defense (yeah, yeah; they’re still my team before and after that one decade-long dream run).

    You see his thin frame — our guys flattened him continuously throughout the game, and he sprang up immediately after every time.
    I can’t even imagine the pain he must have had after even a few of those brutal hits!

    From his interviews he seems to have a decent football brain; he may have an excellent career as a coach if he’s interested.

  6. Amazing how this franchise continuously goes from bad to worse. It seems to have no “hit bottom.”
