Colt McCoy would start in place of Daniel Jones
The New York Giants’ season has quickly turned around now that they’ve on a three-game winning streak. The only problem is that starting quarterback Daniel Jones might miss some time with a hamstring injury.
A source told ESPN the initial belief is that it’s a “pretty bad” hamstring injury. More tests are scheduled Monday to determine the full extent of the injury.
This is the worst time that Jones could get injured with games coming up against the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens.
With how bad the NFC East, many people believe all a team needs is six wins to grab the division and a playoff spot. So if Jones does miss 2-3 games, it won’t be the end of the world, but it will certainly decrease the Giants’ chances of winning the division and going to the playoffs.
Colt McCoy came in to relieve Jones against the Cincinnati Bengals but didn’t look like he’s capable of leading the Giants to a division title. It was obvious that offensive coordinator Jason Garrett was being very conservative with his play-calling. Hopefully a full week of practice will help, but I’m not optimistic.
