Giants’ Plan: Daniel Jones to Resume Starting QB Role After ACL Recovery

The New York Giants are expecting Daniel Jones to return as their starting quarterback once he completes his recovery from knee surgery. General manager Joe Schoen did not provide a specific timeline for Jones’ return but confirmed that the 26-year-old has already begun rehab just five days after the surgery. Schoen expressed confidence in Jones’ work ethic and stated that once he is healthy, he will resume his role as the team’s starting quarterback. The timeline for Jones’ recovery remains uncertain, as the team has not disclosed the full extent of his ACL injury. Despite the uncertainties, the Giants have a significant investment in Jones, having signed him to a four-year, $160 million contract earlier this year. Backup quarterback Taylor, who is set to become a free agent after this season, had started three games in October due to Jones’ absence. Meanwhile, undrafted rookie free agent DeVito has started the past three games, helping the Giants secure wins in the last two matches. Jones played a crucial role in the Giants’ success last season, but his performance this season has been impacted by injuries and offensive line issues. Despite the challenges, Schoen remains confident in Jones’ abilities and character.
