New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has officially been ruled out for the remainder of the 2023 season after suffering a torn ACL in the loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. Jones had an MRI done today to reveal what the team thought was a torn ACL, and it was confirmed today that he will miss the rest of the season.

Daniel Jones Injury
It is estimated that Jones will have a roughly nine-month recovery from his ACL reconstruction and will have the quarterback ready by training camp next summer. He is still fully guaranteed $35.5 million through 2024 after signing his contract before the start of this season.
Jones has struggled through injuries all season long and it has caused him to struggle on the field. He recently had been dealing with a neck injury that caused him to miss a couple of weeks. Sunday’s game against the Raiders was his first game back from the injury, however, he unfortunately suffered a torn ACL pretty early on and was ruled out of the game rather quickly.
New York Giants Struggles
Jones will finish the season with 909 passing yards and two touchdowns along with six interceptions. He had only one game this season where he passed for over 300 yards back in week two against the Arizona Cardinals. Regardless of injury, he has struggled immensely and Giants fans are not happy that he got paid a lot of money before the start of this season.
The Giants are currently sitting at 2-7 and are one of the worst teams in the league. They sit in last place by a mile in the NFC East division and have not shown any signs of improvement. Well, that just got much more difficult for the team now that their starting quarterback is done for the year. New York will face the Dallas Cowboys next week, which is sure to be over by halftime if it’s anything like the shutout in week one.
