Colt McCoy will get a chance to keep the Giants winning streak going
Even though New York Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones was listed as doubtful on this week’s final injury report for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, there was an outside chance that he could play because of how tough he is
Unfortunately, Jones won’t start and instead Colt McCoy is expected to get the nod, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Clayton Thorson will back-up McCoy, who hopefully won’t have a problem staying himself during the game.
This makes the most sense given that Jones’ injury isn’t considered serious and he should be good to go for next Sunday’s match-up with the Arizona Cardinals. The last thing the Giants need is for Jones to push himself too far and he makes his injury worse.
New York offensive coordinator Jason Garrett will need to keep things as simple as he given the fact that McCoy hasn’t started a football game in a very long time and will have more rust to knock off. He only has three starts over the past five seasons. This will be his fourth start since 2014 when he started four games for Washington.
