The New York Giants fell apart at the end of the 2021 season, losing each of their last six games with quarterback Daniel Jones on the sideline. A neck injury kept him off the field for months, but the good news is that head coach Brian Daboll revealed Jones has been cleared for any and all contact.

Daniel Jones Injury Update

It's really the first positive piece of news regarding Jones' status since he suffered the issue back in December. Doctors have given the go-ahead for the 25-year-old to participate in offseason activities, which is crucial considering the Giants declined to pick up Jones' fifth-year option.

Jones enters the 2022 season with his job on the line and the hope is that Daboll as well as new offensive coordinator Mike Kafka can help him step up his game. Overall, the Duke product has posted a 12-25 record and owns a 45:29 touchdown to interception ratio in his three-year NFL career.

While getting healthy is the first step toward improving, it is yet to be seen if Jones can take on fewer sacks and create more explosive plays down the field. Playing at the level he has in the past would almost certainly cause the New York front office to start searching for a new starter in 2023.

The Giants head into the fall with odds set at +184 to make the playoffs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. They also have odds set at +8000 to win Super Bowl 57.
