The New York Giants returned to the practice field on Wednesday and so did quarterback Daniel Jones, who is still nursing a neck injury.
Although Jones is not yet cleared for contact, he was able to do some throwing and could be in play for Sunday, although that should be considered unlikely.
“He’s doing better and he’ll be out here at practice today doing some stuff. We’ll see where we’re at,” head coach Brian Daboll said. “He’s cleared to throw so that’s what he’s going to do today.”
Asked if there’s any concern DJ misses the rest of the season, Daboll said his quarterback will “be back.”
The news wasn’t as positive for several others, including left tackle Andrew Thomas, who continues to sit out with a hamstring injury.
