Giants QB Daniel Jones is considered week-to-week because of his neck strain and backup Mike Glennon is now expected to start Sunday against Miami, sources tell me.
The news of this injury first broke Monday evening but has now been updated again to say Jones is likely out for Week 13 against the Dolphins. It's a big hit to a team that knocked off the Eagles and at least mathematically kept themselves in the playoff hunt. Jones' injury occurred on the second play from scrimmage last week against the Eagles when he got hit sliding on a zone-read keeper. He finished the game, but now is expected to miss at least one game, the tweet went on to say.
Glennon is the team's backup QB and would get the start in Week 13 if Jones can't go. The game is an early afternoon contest so owners will know in plenty of time to make adjustments. Glennon played in one game this year back on Oct. 10, throwing for 196 yards, a TD and two INTs against the Cowboys.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is still contemplating whether or not to get surgery to repair his fractured toe.
Rodgers was quoted as saying "... the surgery would be such a minor one it wouldn’t be something that I’d have to miss time with. That’s a prerequisite for any surgery that I have at this point — I’m not going to miss any time. So we’ll re-assess early next week and make a decision. But it’s not something where [I’d miss time]. I could have surgery on a Monday or Tuesday and play on Sunday.” That would certainly be good news for fantasy owners and the team as they make a push for the top spot in the NFC. Rodgers said he was feeling better compared to last week but it sounds like surgery is still an option as long as he doesn't miss time.
