The report also added that Jones “has an outside chance at playing Sunday” and that the Giants will “have plans with Jones & without him.”
Jones injured the hamstring on a 7-yard run in the third quarter of Sunday’s 19-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. He returned briefly to test the injury, but couldn’t go and Colt McCoy finished the game.
A second report from Jordan Ranaan said an MRI conducted Monday at the Hospital for Special Surgery “showed a hamstring strain that is likely to force him to miss some time.”
The 4-7 Giants, who took over first place in the NFC East with Sunday’s victory, travel to face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Dr. Kyle Flik, an orthopedic surgeon for OrthoNY in the Albany, N.Y. area who has been team doctor for several collegiate teams and minor league franchises, warned that hamstrings “can be nagging” and are “easy to re-injure.”
Media will get an opportunity to speak with Giants coach Joe Judge later this afternoon, and we will have more on the team’s plans for Jones after that.
