Giants QB Tyrod Taylor is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Eagles with a thumb injury. He's been replaced by Tommy DeVito. We'll update Taylor's status when we know more.

Update: Taylor returned early in the second quarter.

Giants QB Tyrod Taylor will start this weekend's game vs. the Rams, HC Brian Daboll said. Taylor played reasonably well in relief of QB Tommy DeVito in Philadelphia on Monday, throwing for 133 yards, one TD, and one INT in the second half. He completed 64% of his passes at 7.4 yards per attempt with two TDs and 0 INTs in starts against the Bills and Commanders earlier this season. Taylor is just a low-end QB2 for Week 17, but he should bring more stability to the offense than DeVito.

Giants QB Tommy DeVito was benched at halftime of Monday's game vs. the Eagles. He produced just three points and 55 passing yards in the game's first 30 minutes. After a few surprisingly competent starts, DeVito has bottomed out the past two weeks. QB Tyrod Taylor will play the second half vs. Philadelphia and figures to start the final two games of the season. He should bring a bit more stability to the Giants' offense.

Giants QB Tommy DeVito exited for a concussion check in the second quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Saints. He took a big shot to the back at the end of a scramble and slammed his head against the turf. We'll update DeVito's status when we know more. He's been replaced by QB Tyrod Taylor.

Update: DeVito returned for the start of the second half.

The Giants have activated QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) from IR. That should return him to the backup role behind Tommy DeVito. Don't be surprised if Taylor's return makes HC Brian Daboll less patient with QB mistakes, but this isn't a situation affecting too many fantasy lineups regardless of who's behind center.

Giants HC Brian Daboll said Tuesday that QB Tommy DeVito will start Monday night's game vs. the Packers. QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) was designated to return from IR and will practice this week. It's unclear if the Giants are just sticking with DeVito or if Taylor isn't cleared for game action yet. DeVito has played better than expected the past three games, completing 63% of his passes at 6.7 yards per attempt with six TDs vs. one INT. He's finished QB18, QB7, and QB20 in fantasy points those three weeks and is in the mix in 2-QB and Superflex leagues. DeVito has also taken a sack on a whopping 20.4% of his dropbacks over the past three games, so the Packers DST makes for a nice Week 14 spot start.

The Giants have designated QB Tyrod Taylor to return from IR, opening his three-week practice window. Taylor missed the last four games with a rib injury, so we'd doubt he needs much buildup time before he's ready to play again. The bigger question might be whether the Giants want to bother going back to the 34-year-old backup or just ride with Tommy DeVito the rest of the way. Neither is likely to be much of a fantasy factor over the season's final few weeks. But DeVito has managed finishes of QB20, QB18, QB7, and QB20 over his four games as the primary QB. We'll watch for word on the Giants' QB plans this week, ahead of a Monday night home date with the Packers.

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.

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 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.

RB Saquon Barkley essentially served as the Giants’ entire offense in Week 8 vs. the Jets, totaling 36 carries for 128 rushing yards with 3 catches. The team had to pivot early on after starting QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) and TE Darren Waller (hamstring) left in the second quarter due to injury and settled on pounding the rock all the way through OT. It’s difficult to draw any meaningful fantasy-based conclusions from this game due to the dire circumstances. Keep an eye on the practice reports this coming week to see who’ll be available to suit up vs. the Raiders in Week 9.

Giants QB Tyrod Taylor suffered a ribs injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jets and has been ruled out. With QB Daniel Jones (neck) inactive, the Giants are down to QB Tommy DeVito.

Update: Taylor has been taken to a hospital, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
