Quarterback Daniel Jones appears on the “right track” toward playing Sunday for the New York Giants as they seek to upset the Baltimore Ravens. Dealing with hamstring and ankle injuries, Jones did not play last Sunday against the Cleveland Browns and has missed two of the last three games.
“I thought he had a good day [at practice] yesterday,” said coach Joe Judge. “The intention is if he’s able to play we intend to play him.
“We came out of yesterday’s practice feeling like we’re on the right track.”
Wide receiver Golden Tate, limited on Wednesday with a calf injury, was expected to only work on the side with the training staff on Thursday. That would seem to put his status in doubt for Sunday.
The Giants designated outside linebacker Kyle Fackrell (calf) for return from injured reserve this week. Fackrell did mostly individual work on Wednesday, and Judge said the Giants would try to ramp him up throughout the week.
“If he can’t do it this week we’re very hopeful for next week,” Judge said.
Running back Devonta Freeman has also been designated for return. Judge said only “we’ll see where that goes.”
With Freeman and Fackrell potentially ready to rejoin the 53-man roster, moves would need to be made.
“We’ve gotta move some numbers around for a lot of things on the roster with a lot of guys possibly coming off,” Judge said. “We’ve gotta make sure we make the best decision for the entire roster.”
