Giants QB Daniel Jones to sit out first preseason game

Daniel Jones won’t play in the battle of New York teams when his Giants meet the Jets in the teams’ preseason opener Saturday at MetLife Stadium.

Giants coach Joe Judge said Thursday that he’s keeping the third-year quarterback off the field, following other NFL coaches who have chosen to sit their starting quarterbacks in preseason Week 1.

Without Jones, the Giants will be led by veteran Mike Glennon and Clayton Thorson, a 2019 third-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles who has yet to play an NFL snap.

Jones, 24, is 8-18 as the starter for the Giants, who selected him No. 6 overall in the 2019 draft. Last season, in 14 games, he completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 2,943 yards with 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

The Giants host the Denver Broncos to open the regular season on Sept. 12. The Jets will play the Panthers in Charlotte, N.C., the same day.
