He just hasn’t been doing a lot of slinging this season under new head coach Joe Judge and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
As the story said, the question is whether he’ll do it against the 1-4-1 Eagles on Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field in what amusingly has become a potential season-turning showdown for first place in the NFC East. The story added Jones has not been throwing the ball down the field this season the way he was in 2019, and the reason likely is two-fold: new coaches and a new system and a more cautious approach he’s taking to try to eliminate his turnover issues.
Reports say Shepard has been working on the side during recent weeks and took part in drills Tuesday, so he could be close to a return. The bad news for owners is the Giants are on a short week and play at Philly Thursday night. He has 21 days to return to the roster and the Giants get 11 days after their game on Thursday.
