Giants QB Daniel Jones out for season with torn ACL

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones tore the ACL in his right knee on Sunday and is out for the rest of the season.

Jones was injured on the final play of the first quarter in New York’s 30-6 loss to the Raiders in Las Vegas and faces a recovery window up approximately nine months, which lines up with the start of training camp in 2024.

Head coach Brian Daboll confirmed Monday that medical testing showed Jones’ ACL tear. The season-ending injury is the latest setback for the Giants, who made the playoffs last season and signed Jones to a four-year, $160 million contract in the offseason. Jones had two touchdown passes and six interceptions in six games this season.

The Giants (2-7) have been outscored 217-101 with just nine offensive touchdowns in nine games.

Jones attempted to elude Raiders edge rusher Maxx Crosby when his right leg gave out and he crumpled to the ground. On the next play, Jones dropped back to pass and as he put pressure on his right leg, it gave out again and he fell to the turf, grabbing his right knee.

Daboll explained Jones made the call to re-enter the game after collapsing the first time.

“He felt like (his knee) buckled, and then he was running it off,” Daboll said. “We went over to him, we talked to him, he said, ‘Nah, I’m good.’ Then, he went back in and he obviously wasn’t.”

Jones walked off the field and was examined in the locker room before being ruled out just after halftime.

Undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito replaced Jones at quarterback but threw two interceptions in his first three pass attempts before finishing with 175 yards passing and a touchdown.

Jones completed 4 of 9 passes for 25 yards before the injury. Jones missed the previous three games due to a neck injury.

Giants backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor is on injured reserve with a rib injury sustained during last week’s 13-10 overtime loss to the New York Jets.
