The Giants won’t have Daniel Jones on Sunday, but they will have Mike Glennon.

That means Jake Fromm won’t make his first career start a week after arriving from Buffalo’s practice squad.

Glennon cleared concussion protocol Friday, the team announced. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice but still needed clearance from an independent neurologist before being cleared for contact.

Glennon started Sunday and completed 23 of 44 passes for 187 yards and an interception in the loss to the Dolphins.

He has started 28 games in his nine NFL seasons, throwing 44 touchdowns and 28 interceptions. His teams are 6-22 in his starts.

Jones will miss a second consecutive week with a neck strain. He injured his neck in the Nov. 28 win over the Eagles.

  1. This guy is like Clipboard Jesus making that easy money! Go Get Em Mike!! Good luck this weekend!!

  2. I’m sure the New York football Giants fans are just thrilled…it was looking like Joe Judge was going to have to ask the parking lot attendant guy outside of MetLife Stadium to take snaps at QB.

  3. Might as well have a good look at Fromm at this point. Could be some potential there.

  4. You know the Tampa Bay Bucs have several EX QBs that are still roaming the country side for over a decade ….Mike Glennon and Josh Johnson are just few.

  5. “I’m sure the New York football Giants fans are just thrilled…it was looking like Joe Judge was going to have to ask the parking lot attendant guy outside of MetLife Stadium to take snaps at QB.” That’s cute, do you feel better about yourself trying to be funny anonymously to a bunch of morons and actually failing at it?

  6. If there was an Agent’s Wing in Canton, Glenton’s agent would be first ballot.

  7. What a relief for Chargers fans! Glennon is guaranteeing a low scoring game for the Giants but with 60%+ completion rate with a clinic on how the low yardage 3rd-down checkdown and punt works.
