Giants coach Joe Judge: “I don’t have an answer” on Daniel Jones

Coach continues to say he still doesn’t know if Daniel Jones can move around well enough to protect himself

Daniel Jones “looked good moving around” during a post-walk thru workout with trainers on Wednesday, according to New York Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. The Giants, though, continued to express uncertainty over whether Jones, who missed last week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks with a hamstring injury, would be available this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

“We put him through some basic agility, short-space stuff,” said head coach Joe Judge. “He’s throwing the ball well, but there’s a lot of stuff we still have to see.”

As he has consistently, Judge said Thursday “our biggest concern is how he can protect himself on the field.”

Judge said the Giants will watch Judge in practice Thursday and Friday before making a decision.

“To be completely transparent and honest with you guys, I don’t have an answer for you right now [as to whether Jones will play Sunday],” Judge said. “I’ve really gotta see this guy move around on the field. That’s just what it is.

“Until he does some things that I can really see and make the judgment that he can protect himself and make the judgment that he can protect himself and stay out there healthy on the field I can’t give you an answer.”

Jones was officially listed as “limited” at Thursday’s practice.
