Daniel Jones was in training on Wednesday, which brings him one step closer to being on the pitch on Sunday.
The Giants quarterback is still in concussion protocol, but he wore protections, jogged, worked with coaches and threw sideways during team practice ahead of Sunday’s game at MetLife. Stadium against the Rams.
There is a five step protocol that Jones needs to clear, and it appears to be either step two (aerobic exercise) or step three (soccer specific exercise). The next step would be the formation of contactless teams and finally full activity / authorization.
Joe Judge said they are preparing both Jones and substitute Mike Glennon for Sunday, and the head coach “wouldn’t rule out” Jones starting even though he’s not a full participant in the event. training this week.
“We’ll have to look at how he is physically and mentally for the game,” Judge said.
Jones was crushed at the goal line by the Cowboys’ Jabril Cox and looked dizzy last Sunday. He did not come back after the stroke of the second quarter. Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald will wait until the weekend, so the Giants will want to make sure Jones is okay.
Wide receivers Sterling Shepard (hamstrings), Darius Slayton (hamstrings) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) were also in training. Jabrill Peppers (hamstring) has also worked out and looks ready for Sunday.
Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Kenny Golladay (knee) did not train with the team.
