Daniel Jones may miss Monday Night Football against Eagles due to injury

Daniel Jones and Eli Manning

It was reported earlier today that Daniel Jones is now dealing with a high-ankle sprain which means Manning is "likely" to play in the Giants upcoming Monday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Jones did not miss a play in the loss to the Packers on Sunday due to the injury.

Jones was in a walking boot on Wednesday, but Shurmur notes the sprain is mild and compared it to the injury running back Saquon Barkley had earlier in the season that sidelined him for three games.

As a matter of fact, there's also a chance that Manning could end up being the starter for the rest of the season, and that's because Jones is dealing with a high-ankle sprain that now has him in a walking boot. There has been speculation that he would retire at the end of this season after losing the starter's job to Jones. Monday also would have been the first time Daniel Jones played against NFC East rival the Philadelphia Eagles.

Pentagon denies United States mulling 14,000 more troops for Middle East
Also yesterday afternoon, a reporter asked the president about the possibility of increased troop deployments to the Middle East. One of the officials said part of the concern was Iranian activity inside Iraq, which is experiencing anti-government protests.

But since that game is still two weeks away, the main focus for the Eagles right now is on Monday's meeting with the Giants since they can't afford to lose another favorable matchup like the Dolphins.

In his rookie season, Daniel Jones is completing 61.6% of his passes and averaging 237.7 yards per game while throwing 18 touchdowns this season and rushing for two more. Through two games, the two-time Super Bowl victor threw for 556 yards on 56-for-89 passing with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

It sounds like Eli Manning is back in the saddle as the Giants' starting quarterback.
