New York Giants QB Daniel Jones out for season with torn ACL

When New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones exited Sunday’s 30-6 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders with a non-contact knee injury, expectations were grim.

On Monday, those fears were realized when an MRI confirmed that Jones had, in fact, suffered a torn ACL and would be shut down for the remainder of the season.

Jones appeared to suffer the injury early in the first quarter when his knee drove into the ground while going out of bounds. He repeatedly flexed it over the next several plays before collapsing onto the grass while attempting to avoid a sack on the final play of the first quarter.

On the very next play, which opened the second quarter, Jones again collapsed while attempting to drop in the pocket.

“It just buckled,” Jones told running back Saquon Barkley, per the FOX broadcast.

After the game, Jones was not made available to the media and quickly left the locker room in what appeared to be an immobilizing brace which was covered by his pants.

With veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ribs) on injured reserve, rookie Tommy DeVito is currently listed as the team’s starter.

Jones finishes the season having completed 67.5 percent of his passes for 909 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions. He was also sacked 30 times.
