If New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has any plans to stop the surging Miami Dolphins – who have now won four straight – he’ll have to do so by way of a clipboard and a headset. On Tuesday evening, news spread that Jones will miss Sunday’s game because of a neck strain. Journeyman Mike Glennon is expected to start in Jones’ absence.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, who broke the news, Jones is now considered “week-to-week.”

With the quarterback situation now in flux, New York signed former Georgia signal caller Jake Fromm off the Bills’ practice. Fromm, along with current Giants practice squad QB Brian Lewerke, are expected to backup Glennon. Both Fromm and Lewerke are second-year players who have yet to attempt a pass in a regular season game.
Per Pelissero, Jones suffered the neck injury on the Giants’ second play from scrimmage Sunday when he was hit while running. He didn’t miss a snap and finished New York’s win over the Eagles with 202 yards through the air, one touchdown and no turnovers.
Now it’s up to Glennon to fish out a win over the Dolphins, who have allowed just 11.5 points per game over their four-game win streak. The 31-year-old Glennon has appeared in just one game this year and hasn’t started since last fall when he handled the reins for Jacksonville. In five 2020 starts, Glennon went winless, throwing seven touchdowns and five picks.
The Jones-less Giants are scheduled to kick off against Miami in Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday at 1:00.
