Giants QB Daniel Jones (knee) said recently that his goal is to be ready for the start of training camp. He's working his way back from a torn right ACL suffered in early November. “My rehab is going well,” Jones said. “I’m making progress. I’m three months into it, and I’ve started running on the anti-gravity treadmill. It’s going well.” Jones will be almost nine months removed from the injury when camp gets going -- and over ten months removed when the 2024 season kicks off. He has a good chance to be cleared by Week 1, although it's likely that his mobility is limited at least early in the season. That, of course, is a big part of whatever fantasy value Jones brings to the table. He's just a QB3 target in early best ball drafts.

An MRI has confirmed a torn right ACL for Giants QB Daniel Jones. That will obviously end his 2023 season. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero says to expect a nine-month recovery, which would put Jones potentially back on the field during 2024 training camp. His injury did occur about five weeks earlier than Cardinals QB Kyler Murray's 2022 ACL tear. We obviously can't assume the same return timeline for any player based only on a similar injury to another guy. But those timelines should give Jones a better chance of returning at least by sometime in the first half of next season. We'll certainly be watching for updates on his recovery in the meantime -- as well as watching how the Giants address the position in the offseason. Jones' contract still carries a $47 million cap hit for 2024 -- and a $69 million dead-cap number if the team were to move on from him. So you can at least bet on Jones staying central to the 2024 plays. Even beyond that, the dead-cap penalty would be $22.2 million for 2025 vs. a $41.6 million cap hit if Jones remains on the roster. Whether the Giants draft a QB early will likely tell us how much longer they hope to have Jones at the helm. The level of investment into the 2024 backup plan can give us hints on how optimistic they are for Jones' recovery. For this season, QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) will be on IR for at least three more weeks, and HC Brian Daboll says it's not yet clear whether Taylor will make it back this season. So it could be Tommy Devito the rest of the way, which lowers the floor and ceiling for all Giants offensive players.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport hears that the Giants believe QB Daniel Jones suffered a “significant knee injury -- potentially a torn ACL" in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. He’s scheduled for an MRI to get a better look at the damage. With QB Tyrod Taylor on IR with the rib injury he suffered last week, the Giants will be down to QB Tommy DeVito. He was better vs. Las Vegas than last week, completing 15 of 20 passes for 175 yards, one TD, and two INTs. The Giants also have QB Matt Barkley on the practice squad.

Giants QB Daniel Jones left Sunday’s game in the first half with an apparent right knee injury. He went to the blue medical tent for further evaluation. We’ll let you know when there’s an update on Jones’ status.

Update: Jones has been ruled out.

The Giants placed QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) on IR, knocking him out for at least the next four games. QB Daniel Jones (neck) is back this week, but New York is down to QBs Tommy DeVito and Matt Barkley (practice squad) behind him.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He’ll start Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders. Jones won’t have TE Darren Waller (hamstring) but might get starting OTs Evan Neal and Andrew Thomas back. Both guys are listed as questionable. Jones is still only in play in 2-QB and superflex leagues.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) confirmed on Tuesday that's he's been medically cleared and plans to play vs. the Raiders this weekend. "Barring any setbacks this week, I'll be ready to go," Jones said. His return is well-timed with QB Tyrod Taylor sidelined with his rib injury. Jones is still only in play in 2-QB and superflex leagues.

Giants QB Tyrod Taylor is considered "week-to-week" with the rib injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Jets, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Taylor spent Sunday night in a hospital but has been released. QB Daniel Jones (neck) is expected back for Week 9. We'll see if the Giants add a QB or roll with Tommy Devito as Jones' backup for now.

Giants QB Daniel Jones has been cleared for contact following his neck injury, according to Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post. That makes Jones likely to return for the team's Week 9 visit to the Raiders. Jones reportedly gained clearance Sunday, the same day fill-in QB Tyrod Taylor went down with a rib injury. We'll watch for further updates on the situation throughout the week. Here's hoping you're in good enough shape at QB that you don't need to start any Giant in Week 9.

Update: HC Brian Daboll told reporters Monday that he expects Jones to practice Wednesday.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. He remained limited in practice all week but hasn't been cleared for contact. QB Tyrod Taylor gets the start again this weekend. He's played reasonably well the past two weeks, completing 65% of his passes at 7.4 yards per attempt with two TDs and 0 INTs. Taylor isn't a recommended fantasy play against a tough Jets defense, but he's not a significant downgrade for guys like RB Saquon Barkley and TE Darren Waller.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) still hasn't been cleared for contact and will be limited in Wednesday's practice, HC Brian Daboll said. Daboll also confirmed that Jones remains the starter, despite QB Tyrod Taylor's relatively solid play the past two weeks. We'll see if Jones can get cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Jets.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Commanders. He put in three limited practices this week but still hasn’t been cleared for contact. QB Tyrod Taylor gets another start today.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) is not expected to play vs. the Commanders on Sunday, according to NFL Network. Jones was limited in practice all week but still hasn't been cleared for contact. He's made "positive strides," per NFL Network, and seemingly has a good chance to be back for Week 8. We've been projecting QB Tyrod Taylor to start vs. Washington all week.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Commanders. He was limited in practice all week, but HC Brian Daboll said Friday morning that Jones still hadn't been cleared for contact. We'll keep you updated on his status, but we're currently projecting QB Tyrod Taylor to start Sunday's game.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) has not yet been cleared for contact, HC Brian Daboll said Thursday. Jones will remain limited at practice today and will obviously need to get that clearance in order to play vs. the Commanders this weekend. We'll keep you updated on his status.
