SNY NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano has confirmed via a source that Jones suffered a strained neck early in the win, and his status for Sunday’s matchup with the Miami Dolphins is uncertain.
As of now, it’s unclear how much of an issue Jones’ neck will be but he could miss some practice time this week, Vacchiano notes, with a lot depending on how Jones feels this week.
"Could be days. Could be weeks. We'll have to wait and see," a source told Vacchiano.
In what appears to be a connected move, the Giants are also signing QB Jake Fromm off the Buffalo Bills practice squad, Vacchiano confirms.
Jones was 19-of-30 for 202 yards and touchdown against the Eagles, adding 30 yards on the ground in the 13-7 win. Overall this season, Jones has thrown for 2,428 yards and 10 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions.
Currently, Jones, Mike Glennon and the soon-to-be-signed Fromm are the only QBs on the active roster, with Brian Lewerke on the practice squad. If Jones is indeed unable to go on Sunday, it would be Glennon getting the start against the Fins.
Per Vacchiano, the Giants are going to proceed as if Glennon is going to start this week, while leaving the door open for Jones for whenever he is ready.
