Daniel Jones’ knee injury feared to be ‘significant,’ per early reports

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones suffered a "significant" right knee injury at the end of the first quarter against the Las Vegas Raiders, with numerous media reports stating it will be a season-ending injury.

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo reported that the team fears Jones has a "potentially a torn ACL based on the initial tests." Head coach Brian Daboll said that x-rays at the stadium were negative but more tests needed to be done when the Giants return home.

Daboll said Jones thought he was OK to continue after the first time he went down on the last play of the first quarter. The Duke product came out to start the second quarter, but his knee buckled as he was untouched when he went to drop back to pass.

Instead, the Giants allowed a season-high 30 points from the Raiders and New York feels like it’s officially looking to the future rather than the remaining eight games. Sitting at 2-7, the Giants are currently projected to pick within the top five of the 2024 NFL draft. With their quarterback situation once again up in the air, the Giants could be selecting even higher come April.

The Post's Mark Cannizzaro writes:

If Jones — who left the game after the first play of the second quarter with a non-contact knee injury — is out for the season with ligament damage, it’s not out of the question to wonder whether he’ll play another down for the team that in the offseason gave him a four-year contract worth $160 million.

The Giants’ current projected path, based on the first nine games of this season, has them headed toward having a very high draft pick and a significant roster overhaul, and that very well may mean a new direction at quarterback.

Daniel Jones might be finished as the Giants’ starting quarterback.

It’s not a lock, of course. But the right knee injury he suffered in Sunday’s unthinkable 30-6 loss at the Raiders — which at least one former NFL team head doctor thinks is a torn ACL — opens the door to general manager Joe Schoen drafting a quarterback high in 2024.

The Giants seemed determined to get rookie Jalin Hyatt some deep targets this week and he looked good in terms of getting behind the defense, but the Giants couldn’t connect on a big play to get their offense going. Hyatt caught one, but came down out of bounds, then got behind the defense only to be overthrown by Jones. His third deep target was on DeVito’s first interception.
