Hopes to be fully cleared for camp

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-04-15

Jones noted Monday that he hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery from Nov. 22 surgery to address a right ACL tear, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The report adds that Jones says he's past the neck issue that he dealt with last season prior to hurting his knee, indicating that it was just a stinger. At this stage, the QB is throwing and hopes to participate in spring practices in some fashion, with Jones adding that he's aiming be fully cleared for the start of training camp. When healthy, Jones is in line to reclaim his starting role for the Giants, who added fellow signal-caller Drew Lock in free agency and also roster Tommy DeVito. Moreover, it's possible that the team adds depth at the position in the upcoming NFL draft.

Expected to start once healthy

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-25

Coach Brian Daboll isn't sure if Jones (knee) will be ready for Week 1 but told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero on Saturday that Jones will be "the guy" at quarterback once he's able to play.

Daboll made it clear Drew Lock was signed as a backup, though that may entail dominating first-team reps throughout spring practices and into training camp. There's a potential complication for both Jones and Lock in the form of the upcoming NFL Draft, with New York picking sixth overall and perhaps considering a quarterback. On the other hand, an early pick could mean significant help for Jones, as popular mock draft matches at No. 6 include LSU WR Malik Nabers and Notre Dame OT Joe Alt. There are a number of potential hurdles for Jones this upcoming season, starting with his ongoing rehab from Nov. 22 surgery on a torn ACL. Later in the season, future injury guarantees in his contract could end up impacting the Giants' decision on who to start at quarterback, as was the case for Denver and Russell Wilson in 2023.

Resumes stationary throwing

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-27

General manager Joe Schoen said Monday that Jones (knee) has resumed stationary throwing and that he has "faith in [Jones] as our starting quarterback," Connor Hughes of reports.

Jones, who is recovering from a right ACL tear, resumed stationary throwing two weeks ago and remains on track for the start of training camp. Schoen added that Jones could be ready for 7-on-7 work in spring. The Giants have consistently talked of Jones as their starter since the end of the 2023 regular season, and he's only one year into his four-year, $160 million contract extension, but the soon-to-be 27-year-old's miserable 2023 campaign also can't be overlooked. In six games before his season-ending injury Jones compiled just 909 passing yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions while completing 108 of 160 pass attempts (5.7 YPA). If a solid quarterback prospect falls to New York at the No. 6 overall pick in April's draft, the team's true confidence in Jones will be put to the test.

Viewed as team's starting QB

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-30

General manager Joe Schoen reiterated Tuesday that the Giants are planning for Jones (knee) to enter training camp as their starter, though Schoen noted that the team isn't ruling out selecting a quarterback in the 2024 NFL Draft, Connor Hughes of reports.

Despite being rewarded with a four-year, $160 million contract extension last offseason, Jones didn't quell concerns that he's the long-term answer at quarterback for the Giants. He completed 108 of 160 pass attempts (67.5 percent) for 909 yards (5.7 YPA), two touchdowns and six interceptions to go with 206 yards and a touchdown on 40 carries before suffering a season-ending ACL tear in his right knee in Week 9 and undergoing surgery Nov. 22. Given the mid-season timing of his procedure, Jones should have at attaining full medical clearance prior to the start of training camp in late July, but that won't necessarily give him any assurances that he'll retain the starting gig all season. The Giants own the No. 6 overall pick in the draft, putting them in solid position to select a signal-caller from what's regarded as a strong quarterback class. If the Giants elect to address needs elsewhere on the roster with the No. 6 pick, Jones would head into the upcoming season with much more job security.

Aiming to return by training camp

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-06

Jones said Wednesday that the surgery on his right knee didn't uncover any additional damage and added that his goal is to be ready to play by training camp next year, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Jones underwent right knee surgery Nov. 22, and he explained Wednesday that no damage aside from the ACL was discovered during the procedure. That should help to some extent in his desire to be ready to participate by the start of training camp next July, though how he progresses through the rehabilitation process will ultimately determine his return timeline. The Giants gave Jones a four-year, $160 million contract extension this past March with $35.5 million guaranteed for 2024, so he figures to be their starting quarterback next season, though the ACL injury could feasibly cost him to miss some games at the start of the campaign if his recovery goes more slowly than he hopes.

Still has commitment from Giants

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-27

General manager Joe Schoen said Monday that Jones (knee) is still expected to be New York's starter, when healthy, but that won't stop the team from making moves at the quarterback position during the 2024 offseason, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Jones underwent successful surgery to address a right ACL tear Nov. 22 and is now facing an 8-to-10 month recovery timetable. That gives him a realistic chance to be ready for Week 1 of the 2024 season, but that's contingent on him avoiding any serious setbacks. The Giants are sitting at a 4-8 record but have recorded back-to-back wins with UDFA Tommy DeVito under center, so any further victories down the stretch could result in the team's first-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft not being high enough to realistically target a top QB prospect. Such a scenario would lend credence to Schoen's verbal commitments to Jones, even after a disasters 2023 campaign. Tommy DeVito will also remain under contract for New York next season, though veteran backup Tyrod Taylor (ribs) is scheduled for free agency.

Out 8-10 months after ACL surgery

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-22

Jones (knee) has an expected recovery timeline of 8-10 months after undergoing successful surgery on his torn ACL on Wednesday morning, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Jones suffered the injury Nov. 5 against the Raiders. The 2024 NFL season is expected to kick off just under 10 months from the date of Jones' surgery, so he has a realistic chance of being ready to play by then. Jones is the top quarterback option currently in the organization after signing a four-year, $160 million contract with the Giants prior to the 2023 season. New York could add competition for him in the 2024 NFL Draft, though, as Jones posted an ugly 2:6 TD:INT in six appearances this season after notching a 15:5 mark across 16 starts last season.

Surgery set for Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-21

Jones is slated to undergo surgery on the torn ACL in his right knee Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Prior to his season ending Week 9, Jones sat out the previous three games due to a neck injury, limiting him to just six appearances during the 2023 campaign. Overall, he completed a respectable 68 percent of his passes, but he also posted a career-low 5.7 yards per attempt, notched a 2:6 TD:INT and fumbled four times (one lost). Now that his injured knee is stabilized and the procedure is set, Jones soon will begin his recovery while undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito continues to direct the Giants offense.

Shifts to IR

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-08

The Giants placed Jones (knee - ACL) on injured reserve Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Jones is set to undergo season-ending knee surgery after suffering a torn right ACL in Sunday's loss to the Raiders, his first time retaking the field after a three-game absence. Across six appearances in 2023, Jones finished a 67.5 percent completion rate to go with a 5.7 YPA and 2:6 TD:INT. Despite Jones having signed a sizeable four-year extension during the offseason, with $35.5 million fully guaranteed for 2024, there are now legitimate questions about whether New York will decide to proceed forth with him as the team's franchise quarterback. In addition to his nine-month recovery timetable, Jones is undeniable coming off a statistically unimpressive 2023 showing, and the the Giants could now be primed to enter the 2024 NFL Draft with an early first-round pick. In a corresponding transaction to Jones' placement on IR, veteran Matt Barkley has been signed from the practice squad to serve as the backup to Tommy DeVito in Week 10.
