Jones is currently struggling with neck strain according to reports, and the Giants ruled him out on Friday. The hope is that Jones will only be missing 1-2 weeks with the injury.

New York Daily News Giants defeated writer Pat Leonard reports Jones is considered a week with the injury.

In Game 2 of the Giants’ Week 12 divisional game against the Eagles, Jones was hit as he slipped, but he stayed in the game. Jones completed 19 of 30 passes for 202 yards and didn’t return the ball in the win.

In response to the injury, replacement quarterback Mike Glennon is expected to start, according to reports. The Giants also signed quarterback Jake Fromm from the Bills practice squad.

In a season of ups and downs, Jones threw 2,428 yards with a 64.1% completion rate, with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions to go along with it. The third-year QB has also lost five fumbles this season.
