Daniel Jones listed as questionable: Do Giants even want him to play?

When the New York Giants handed Daniel Jones a huge contract extension last offseason, the team expected either a repeat of 2022 or continued progression from the quarterback. So far, they've gotten neither.

In addition to being wholly ineffective through the first five games of the season, Jones is now dealing with a neck injury that's similar to the one that prematurely ended his 2021 season.

Daniel Jones could pave way for Tyrod Taylor again

While Jones' current injury doesn't seem to be as bad, he has already missed a game and appears to be on the wrong side of his Week 7 questionable tag. Head coach Brian Daboll said on Friday that Jones hasn't been cleared for contact yet, which puts his game status very much in doubt.

If Jones is out again, Tyrod Taylor will step in against the Washington Commanders. Taylor didn't shock the world in his spot start last week against the Buffalo Bills, but he limited mistakes and made some throws that had many wondering if he's actually the better option at quarterback at this moment in time.

Jones is the more talented player and his 2022 season was better than even Taylor's best seasons, but the Giants need someone that isn't going to put them in negative situations. Jones has not been able to do that this season.

The fifth-year signal-caller has taken a concerning 28 sacks in five games, thrown six interceptions and fumbled four times (although only one was lost). In Taylor's lone start, he took three total sacks and didn't turn the ball over while completing 66.6% of his passes.

Taylor isn't the athlete he once was, but he can still pick up gains on the ground when needed. His ability to limit turnovers is something the Giants may need more than Jones' "potential" as they sit at 1-5.
