Friday update: Head coach Joe Judge saysDaniel Jones is out for Week 13 with a strained neck, per Matt Lombardo. Mike Glennon should get the start. Fire up those Dolphins D/STs.

Thursday update: Despite earlier reports that Jones would miss this week, new play caller Freddie Kitchens, expects Jones to play on Sunday after he got in a limited practice Wednesday.

Wednesday update: Giants head coach Joe Judge says that Daniel Jones hasn’t been ruled out and will practice this week, which goes against NFL Network’s reporting on the situation.

Wednesday update: Daniel Jones is considered week-to-week with his neck injury, which will give Mike Glennon the start this week against the Dolphins, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. This is the push you needed to play the Dolphins D/ST everywhere.

The New York Giants face a huge question at the quarterback position heading into Week 13. Daniel Jones suffered a strained neck on Sunday in the team’s win over the Eagles and his status for Week 13 vs. the Dolphins is in question, per Tom Pelissero.

The Giants hit the practice field on Wednesday and will have their first practice participation report that afternoon. Mike Glennon is the team’s current backup, and they signed Jake Fromm off the Bills practice squad on Tuesday, per Pelissero.

Fantasy football implications

You’re likely not starting Jones in fantasy football. He’s had some impressive moments this season, but has been way too inconsistent to consider even as a bye week fill-in at this point. Glennon wouldn’t really be an upgrade or downgrade at this point for Giants skill position players. The team is a mess and it’s hard to see much value at all on this roster heading toward fantasy playoffs.
