Tuesday night’s reports gave the impression that New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones would not play against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday due to neck strain. Well, hold the phone.
Jones may not play, but head coach Joe Judge said Wednesday “We’re not going to rule anything out just yet. “
The judge said Jones will be on the field for training on Wednesday.
“We’ll see what he can do,” the judge said.
Sure enough, a helmeted Jones took the field during the stretching portion of the open media practice.
After practice Jones told the media that “I spend the week getting ready to play.”
Jones said his neck was “sore” but that he “feels a lot better today and hopes I will continue to feel better and better every day.”
Jones generally wants to play.
“I feel this responsibility to be there. You never want to miss games, ”he said. “As a quarterback you never want to miss a moment. My goal is to come back and be ready to play.
What must happen for him to play?
“I think there are a number of things that coaches and medics want to see, but that’s not really the case – my goal is to keep improving and getting better, and then to put that’s in their hands this weekend, ”Jones said.
The initial injury report will be released later today. This first summary, however, from Dan Duggan of The Athletic:
I haven’t seen WR John Ross (had a quad last week), TE Kaden Smith (knee) or LB Trent Harris (ankle).
FB Cullen Gilaspia (calf), WR Kadarius Toney (quad) and TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) were on the side.
CB Adoree ‘Jackson (quad) and WR Sterling Shepard (quad) stretched.
