    Giants' Daniel Jones: Locked in for 2021

    The New York Giants appear committed to Daniel Jones as their starting quarterback for 2021, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan.A few NFL teams appear ready to give up on first-round QBs they drafted in recent years, but the Giants are expected to stick with Jones, hoping he'll play better if he has more help around him. To that end, the team could stand to add a solid blocker and another reliable pass catcher, in addition to the potential benefit from getting Saquon Barkley (knee) back on the field. While Jones figures to be the Week 1 starter, it is possible he'll be on a shorter leash in 2021, especially if the Giants find a better backup than Colt McCoy.

    Giants' Daniel Jones: Efficient in win over Cowboys

    Daniel Jones completed 17 of 25 pass attempts for two touchdowns and one interception while adding 17 yards on nine carries during Sunday's 23-19 win over the Cowboys.Jones averaged an efficient 9.2 yards per attempt while completing 68 percent of his passes. He threw multiple touchdown passes for the first time in six appearances, connecting with Dante Pettis and Sterling Shepard from 33 and 10 yards out, respectively.

    Giants' Daniel Jones: Compensating for hampered mobility

    Daniel Jones said Wednesday that he "intends to play from the pocket more" until he's fully healthy, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.Jones logged 55 carries for 406 yards through the New York Giants' first 11 games of the season, but since Week 12, he's had to substantially adjust his playing style due to hamstring and ankle injuries. In his two appearances since the injuries surfaced, Jones has only rushed once for three yards. An inability to make plays with his legs has likewise limited Jones' ability to attack defenses through the air, with just one passing touchdown in his last two games. According to Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site, Jones was listed on Wednesday's practice report as a full participant, but he's still likely be playing at less than 100 percent during Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

    Giants' Daniel Jones: Scores once via air in Week 16 loss

    Daniel Jones completed 24 of 41 pass attempts for 252 yards and a touchdown, adding one rush for three yards during Sunday's 27-13 loss to Baltimore.New York's offensive slump carried into Week 16, as the team was held under 20 points for a fifth consecutive game en route to a third straight loss. Jones proved capable of battling through ankle and hamstring injuries to avoid a third game absence since Week 13, but the sophomore signal-caller remains without a multi-TD passing performance over his past five starts. The quarterback has three such outings all year, while a season high of 279 passing yards caps his upside. Jones does have the ability to produce on the ground, but he's exceeded 20 rushing yards only once in six games since Week 8. To close out the regular season, Jones and the New York Giants are slated to host the division-rival Cowboys. New York needs a win and a Washington loss to Philadelphia in order to clinch the 2020 NFC East title.

    Giants' Daniel Jones: Questionable for Sunday

    Daniel Jones (ankle/hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Baltimore, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.Jones was limited in practice Wednesday through Friday, never quite making it to full participation.

    Giants' Daniel Jones: Looks on track for Week 16

    Head coach Joe Judge said that Daniel Jones (ankle/hamstring) is "heading in the right direction," seemingly putting the quarterback on track to start Sunday in the New York Giants' game against the Ravens, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.Judge's comments came after Jones practiced on a limited basis for the second straight day Thursday. While Jones was a limited participant all of last week before ultimately being ruled out ahead of the Giants' loss to the Browns, he's been taking the first rep ahead of Colt McCoy in both of the team's practices this week, a sign that the coaching staff believes the 2019 first-rounder is on track to play in Baltimore. The Giants will evaluate Jones at their final Week 16 practice Friday before deciding whether to give the signal-caller an injury designation for the contest.

    Giants' Daniel Jones: Maintains limited practice activity

    Daniel Jones (ankle/hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the New York Giants' official site reports.Jones split first-team reps with Colt McCoy for the second straight practice, but the second-year signal-caller appears to be in a better spot health wise than he was last week. According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Jones has been the first quarterback under center in practices Wednesday and Thursday, whereas McCoy took the initial reps last week before getting the starting nod ahead of Sunday's loss to Washington. Unless he turns in full workout Friday, Jones is still likely to be listed as questionable for this weekend's game in Baltimore, but he appears to have an edge over McCoy for the start based on his practice usage thus far.

The second-year pro has missed two of the last three games, the first due to a right hamstring strain and the second due to a left ankle injury.
