"We'll have those meetings this week," general manager Joe Schoen confirmed Tuesday.
Both players have come a long way this year given their struggles and injury history. Jones, 25, was a first-round pick (sixth overall) in 2019 and has completed 63.1 percent of his passes this season for 1,399 yards with six touchdowns and two interceptions in eight starts. Barkley, 25, was a first-rounder (second overall) in 2018 and currently is second in the NFL with 779 rushing yards. He has five rushing touchdowns and 28 catches for 189 yards in eight games, the story said.
Brian Daboll says Daniel Jones (ankle) “came out good” after last week’s game. Saquon Barkley (shoulder) will be out there practicing.
The tweet added Jones feels better today than he did last Wednesday, so that's great news for owners. The team expects Barkley to be limited with his shoulder issue. Looks like both players should be good to go for Week 6.
Daniel Jones went through all of media viewing portion of today’s practice.
The tweet said Jones did both individual stuff and team drills and the author commented that was was moving well. The Giants are optimistic Jones will be able to play in Week 5. The Giants and Packers are in London this week so owners will have time for a backup plan if they are counting on Jones and he's a last-minute call.
Giants QB Daniel Jones, who left Sunday’s win with an ankle injury, is considered day-to-day. While tests will continue, there is some optimism that he plays Week 5.
Both Jones and backup Tyrod Taylor (concussion) left the team's game on Sunday against the Bears, leaving Saquon Barkley as the Giants' only option. That, of course, won't happen for their London game against the Packers, but the entire already-moribund offense will look even worse if Jones is forced to miss a week.
