It could very well be the “Jake from State Fromm” show from here on out for Big Blue and the New York Giants.

The Giants announced Monday that quarterback Daniel Jones will be placed on injured reserve with a neck injury and miss the remainder of the season.

“Over the course of the past few weeks, Daniel has been examined by Dr. Frank Cammisa of Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. Robert Watkins of the Marina Spine Center at Marina Del Rey Hospital,” said Ronnie Barne, Senior Vice President, Medical Services/Head Athletic Trainer. Our medical team has continued to consult with Dr. Cammisa and Dr. Watkins regarding Daniel’s condition and symptoms, and at this point, Daniel has not been cleared for contact.

“We felt the prudent decision was to place Daniel on injured reserve for the remainder of the season. With continued rest and treatment, we expect a full recovery.”

Jones, 24, suffered the injury during the Giants’ Week 12, 13-7 loss to the Eagles. Jones’ third season ends completing 64.3% of his passes for 2,248 yards, 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Backup Mike Glennon has failed to give an inspired performance in three games under center, throwing for less than 200 yards in every game. Glennon’s play hit rock bottom in the 21-6 loss Sunday to the Cowboys, throwing three interceptions. Enter Jake Fromm, the former Georgia standout who relieved Glennon during the game for his NFL debut.

Fromm finished the game 6-of-12 for 82 yards. Head coach Joe Judge has yet to name a starter for the Giants’ (4-9) Week 16 road tilt against the Eagles (6-7).
