The New York Giants returned to the practice field on Wednesday and as expected, quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) resumed his role with the first team unit.
Jones was officially cleared for contact on Sunday and barring any setbacks, will start against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
Running back Saquon Barkley, who is nursing an elbow injury, was thrilled to see his friend on the field.

Meanwhile, offensive tackles Andrew Thomas and Evan Neal are each inching closer to a return.
