Giants QB Daniel Jones Suffers Neck Injury, Ruled Out vs. Bills

  • New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones will miss the game against the Buffalo Bills due to a neck injury suffered during a previous match.
  • Tyrod Taylor is set to start as the quarterback against his former team, the Bills.
  • The Giants are facing a series of injuries, including key players on both the offensive line and defense, and are significant underdogs in the upcoming game against Buffalo.

Oct.14 : New York Giants‘ starting quarterback, Daniel Jones, will be sidelined for Sunday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills due to a neck injury, as confirmed by Coach Brian Daboll on Friday. Jones sustained this injury during the last game against the Miami Dolphins, experiencing a violent neck snap when hit from behind for the sixth time in the match. This injury has kept him from participating in practice throughout the week.

Coach Daboll expressed his belief that Jones is making some progress but emphasized that he’s not in a condition to play in the upcoming game. As a result, Tyrod Taylor will take the reins as the starting quarterback, facing his former team, the Bills.

The status of star running back Saquon Barkley is also uncertain for this game. Coach Daboll mentioned that Barkley is “closer” to returning than in previous weeks, but he remains listed as questionable. Barkley has been dealing with a high ankle sprain that has kept him out of action for the last three games. He mentioned that he’s been working through pain, inflammation, and soreness associated with the injury, but he’s been gradually improving each week.

Earlier in the week, there was optimism regarding Jones’ recovery, but that changed after the results of an MRI. While Jones and Daboll didn’t provide specifics about the injury, Jones made it clear that this neck issue is different from the one he experienced in 2021, which caused him to miss the final six games of that season due to a disk issue. He initially hoped to play this week but hasn’t been able to run or throw during practice. Instead, he’s focusing on rehabilitation at the team’s facility.

The Giants are dealing with multiple injuries, with several key players ruled out for the game. All-Pro left tackle Andrew Thomas, starting center John Michael Schmitz, offensive tackle Matt Peart, and outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari are among those sidelined. Additionally, tight end Darren Waller and right tackle Evan Neal are listed as questionable. Given this, the Giants will have to field a makeshift offensive line in front of Tyrod Taylor, which poses a significant challenge.
