Tyrod Taylor leaves with thumb injury

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 He's been replaced by Tommy DeVito.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 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 He's been replaced by QB Tyrod Taylor.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.

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.
