New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones returned from a neck injury on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders but that would be short-lived.
In the final seconds of the first quarter, Jones appeared to suffer a non-contact knee injury but briefly remained in the game. However, on the very next snap, he attempted a three-step drop and immediately crumbled to the ground.

Trainers quickly rushed onto the field and guided Jones into the blue medical tent before escorting him to the locker room.
“It buckled,” Jones told running back Saquon Barkley, per the FOX broadcast.
Undrafted rookie quarterback Tommy DeVito, who was signed from the practice squad this week, replaced Jones under center.
DeVito was unexpectedly called into action last week when veteran Tyrod Taylor suffered a severe rib cage injury. Taylor has since been placed on injured reserve (IR).
Running back Saquon Barkley and wide receiver Parris Campbell are the next in line at quarterback.
