Giants head coach Joe Judge said Monday that Glennon is dealing with a left wrist injury that will require season-ending surgery, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports. After a one-game benching, Glennon reclaimed starting duties from Jake Fromm, who sputtered in his first extended NFL action in the Week 16 loss to the Eagles. Despite getting another crack at the job, Glennon dropped to 0-4 as a starter after he directed a listless Giants offense in Sunday's 29-3 loss to the Bears, completing only four of 11 pass attempts for 24 yards and two interceptions while taking four sacks and fumbling four times (losing two). The rotten outing likely would have prompted Judge to evaluate the quarterback situation heading into the Jan. 9 season finale versus Washington, but the injury to Glennon's non-throwing hand made the decision easy for the coach. Glennon is set to be a free agent this offseason and may have trouble latching on as a backup with any organization after finishing the season with a 53.9 percent completion rate, 4.7 YPA and 4:10 TD:INT across six appearances.
Glennon completed four of 11 passes for 24 yards and two interceptions in Sunday's 29-3 loss to Chicago. He added 13 yards on one rushing attempt and fumbled four times, losing two. Glennon struggled mightily for the banged-up Giants, and the team primarily kept the ball on the ground in the blowout loss. Even if Glennon is given the starting nod in Week 18 against Washington, his 4:10 TD:INT this season suggests it's best to avoid him in fantasy.
The Giants are planning to have Glennon start Sunday's game against the Bears, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. New York re-evaluated its quarterback situation for the second week in a row after Jake Fromm stepped in for his first career start last Sunday in place of the struggling Glennon, who went 0-3 while completing only 51 percent of his throws for 4.6 yards per attempt and 2:5 TD:INT during his three-game run after taking over for the injured Daniel Jones (neck). Though Fromm is nearly a decade younger than Glennon and offers more developmental upside, the 23-year-old did little to demonstrate he was an NFL-caliber quarterback in last week's loss to the Eagles, completing only six of 17 attempts for 25 yards and an interception before he was benched midway through the third quarter. Glennon took over thereafter and wasn't much better, completing 17 of 27 throws for 93 yards, a touchdown and an interception. That outing coupled with how he performed in practice this week looks like it'll be enough for Glennon to get another turn as the starter, with Raanan noting that the Giants don't intend to use him as part of a timeshare with Fromm. Even so, Glennon's prior production suggests he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a low-end lineup option in leagues that start two quarterbacks or have a superflex spot.
Glennon and Jake Fromm are both expected to receive playing time at quarterback in Sunday's game against the Bears, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Benched after a three-game run as the Giants' starting signal-caller Glennon came off the bench in the second half of the team's Week 16 loss to the Eagles in relief of a struggling Fromm, finishing with 17 completions for 93 yards, a touchdown and an interception over 27 attempts. Although the veteran was slightly more effective than Fromm, his 3.4 YPA was still woeful. Head coach Joe Judge said Wednesday that he'll determine the starting quarterback for Week 17 based on the performances of the two in practices, but both Fromm and Glennon look on track to take some reps Sunday.
Glennon is set to move into a backup role Sunday against the Eagles with the Giants set to give Jake Fromm his first NFL start, sources tell Adam Schefter of ESPN. Head coach Joe Judge wasn't willing to confirm the Giants' plans at quarterback following the team's final practice of the week Friday, but multiple reports heading into the weekend suggested the team would demote Glennon to the backup role after he went 0-3 while completing just 51 percent of his passes for 4.6 yards per attempt and a 2:5 TD:INT while starting in place of the injured Daniel Jones (neck). Though Jones has been ruled out for the season, the Giants have seemingly determined that the 32-year-old Glennon -- who is set to become a free agent this offseason -- isn't part of their future plans. The 23-year-old Fromm, on the other hand, offers more upside as a developmental option behind Jones heading into next season, even though he's unproven at the NFL level and has already been dropped by the organization (Buffalo) that drafted him in the fifth round in 2020.
