With three games to play in the season, New York will not have its starting quarterback due to injury.
The New York Giants they’ll deactivate the quarterback Daniel jones for the remainder of the season due to his neck injury, the team announced Monday.
The decision puts a premature end to the third professional campaign of JonesBut there is optimism that the injury will not affect the quarterback’s long-term future. The wide receiver Sterling shepard (torn Achilles tendon), injured Sunday, was officially placed on injured reserve, along with Jones.
“Over the course of the past two weeks, Daniel has been examined by the Dr. Frank Cammisa Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. Robert Watkins of the Marina Spine Center at the Marina Del Rey Hospital “, explained the chief physical trainer of the Giants, Ronnie barnes, in a statement issued by the team this Monday. “Our medical team has continued to consult with the Dr. Cammisa and with him Dr watkins regarding the condition of Daniel and your symptoms, and at this point, Daniel has not been discharged for physical contact.
“We felt that the prudent decision was to place Daniel on reserve injured for the remainder of the season. With continued rest and treatment, we look forward to a full recovery. “
The Giants, last in the NFC East At 4-10 and stuck on a three-game losing streak, they’ve suffered a lot without Jones. In those three defeats, the substitute Mike glennon never made it past the 200-yard barrier, and was intercepted three times Sunday in a 21-6 home loss to the Dallas cowboys.
“Self-inflicted wounds,” he said Glennon after the loss, in which he threw for just 99 yards. “There were a couple of times we moved the ball really well and we just ended up with field goals. And then a couple of silly decisions on my part, forcing the ball, that weren’t good decisions.”
The third team quarterback, Jake fromm, ended the match against Dallas. The Giants they have three games to play.
