Giants planning for every contingency at quarterback

The Giants were able to put the finishing touches on a win over the Bears on Sunday despite being without a healthy quarterback, but beating the Packers in London this week looks like a taller task given the current state of affairs.

Head coach Brian Daboll said that Daniel Jones‘ ankle was “feeling a little bit better” on Monday, but Tyrod Taylor remains in the concussion protocol and no one’s being ruled in for this weekend yet. Davis Webb will likely be promoted from the practice squad and the team will work out other quarterbacks in order to make sure they’ll have enough healthy bodies for the game.

Signing another quarterback joins starting Webb as things the Giants will have to consider under the circumstances.

“I think you try to plan for every contingency plan that you may or may not have throughout the week,” Daboll said. “That will certainly be one of them. Again, I don’t want to guess right now on Monday where all the other guys are going to be. Davis been in our offense for quite some time. He knows the ins and outs of it, so if he has to play, we’ll do everything we can, and I know he will, to be ready to play. In terms of where we’re at at that point, I don’t think we’re at that point just yet to make a decision. We’ll let this thing play out.”

The Giants are also ailing at wide receiver. Daboll called Kenny Golladay unlikely to play this week and the team has been playing without Kadarius Toney and Wan'Dale Robinson, so this weekend may be set up to feature an even bigger helping of Saquon Barkley for the Giants offense.

  1. The Giants have been extremely fortunate in their early schedule. How often can you play a game without a QB and still win. Another low water mark for the bears.

    Bears are probably thinking that maybe they should’ve drafted help for one of the worst offenses talent wise instead of using all their resources to add to the already strong defensive group

  2. Don’t worry Giants fans….once again as proven against the Patriots, the Packers historically have a knack for making no-name back-up quarterbacks play like seasoned All-Pros. Every time.

  3. The Bears should know better than to draft an Ohio State QB, let alone one that only played a year and a half, and the half was a pandemic short season. Even the best of Ohio State QBs was mediocre in the NFL, not counting Joe Burrow since he never really played.

    The fact that the Giants could beat them without a QB says more about the Bears than it does about the Giants, honestly.

  4. All the injuries to key players on teams opposing the Packers has been like the parting of the red sea early in the season. Except for the Vikings, and we all saw what happened in that game.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    It’s not a “Packer” thing. Fifteen of the sixteen games played this past week had a one score differential in the fourth quarter.

  6. When do they depart for London? That compressed travel schedule has to complicate this for the Jints.

    As a stout Packer fan,…….. I hate to say this but you’re correct.
    Why that is I’ll never get it. HaHaHa. Let’s see what happens Sunday morning.
