The New York Giants showed interest in adding to their quarterback depth chart amid concern about Daniel Jones’ future availability. Jones missed the Giants Week 6 game against the Buffalo Bills due to a neck injury.
Jones talked to NBC’s Mellisa Stark ahead of the Giants matchup against the Bills. Jones said he could throw but could not make contact. The Giants hope Jones can come back to play against the Washington Commanders in Week 7, but the team is exploring other options at quarterback.
Backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor was arguably the best quarterback for Giants offense this season in Week 6. Taylor finished 24/36 passing for 200 yards in the 14-9 loss to Buffalo. But Taylor made one crucial mistake at the end of the first half that a veteran quarterback can’t make when he changed a play call to a run that didn’t score a touchdown, and the clock ran out without the team scoring even a field goal.
