New York Giants Plan after Daniel Jones Injury

Daniel Jones has been lost for the season after an injury he sustained in the New York Giants’ game last week against the Las Vegas Raiders. Jones tore his ACL in the game.

The loss to the Raiders was the worst of the season for the Giants. The Raiders had essentially given up on the season this past week by benching Jimmy Garrapollo who they gave a large three-year deal to in the offseason. Rookie Aidan O’Connell started the game and the Raiders had an extremely conservative game plan. It was just the Raiders’ fourth win of the year and now the Giants have fallen to 2-7.

Now the Giants will have to go to “Plan C” which we already saw in the loss to the Raiders. It wasn’t great as “Plan C” was to play undrafted-rookie quarterback Tommy Devito. Devito threw seven passes a week ago completing two of them and against the Raiders he threw two interceptions and one touchdown while completing 15-20 passes.

The second-string quarterback for the Giants was Tyrod Taylor to begin the season before he got injured and was placed on injured reserve. He could return this season but not for a few more weeks.

So what is the pan for the rest of the season? The Giants signed Jacob Eason who has bounced around the NFL after being drafted in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Eason has minimal NFL experience. He’s thrown 10 passes where he accounted for two interceptions and no touchdowns.

While the Giants should give Eason a chance to play this year, unless Tommy Devito has an inspiring performance next week, they may have another plan at quarterback next season outside of Eason, Devito, or even Jones.

Daniel Jones got a massive deal in the offseason that will still pay him $40 million next year but the Giants do have an out for his contract in 2025. The 2024 NFL Draft is coming sooner rather than later and is heavy with promising quarterbacks.

It would be shocking if the Giants did not select a quarterback in the upcoming draft. As of right now, the Giants would have a top-five pick in the draft. They could even opt to start Jones next year and stash whoever they draft. If he plays well next season they could keep him, but if he doesn’t, next year will likely be Jones’ last year in New York.
