New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones twisted his ankle on a fourth-down run in Sunday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers.
The New York Giants had a little bit of a scare this past Sunday. In the midst of their 31-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers, quarterback Daniel Jones suffered an injury to his ankle. The apparent setback occurred on a fourth-down run in which Jones was able to reach forward and gain enough yardage to move the chains. However, his ankle was twisted at the bottom of the pile.
Jones was checked on when he came off to the sideline during the second quarter. He seemed fine after that, actually going out to finish the game. On Monday, Giants head coach Pat Shurmur noted that his starting quarterback’s ankle is “fine.”
Daniel Jones' ankle is "fine," per Pat Shurmur. No need for further tests Monday. Shurmur called it typical game soreness. Jones had his ankle checked in the second quarter Sunday after getting it twisted on a fourth-down run.

Therefore, it doesn’t seem like Jones will miss any practice time with the injury and should be healthy enough to prepare for Philadelphia next Monday.
For what it’s worth, Eli Manning is “ready” if Jones somehow isn’t.
Jones didn’t have his best game whatsoever in the loss to Green Bay. The first-year quarterback completed 20 of his 37 throws for 240 yards and one touchdown. He additionally threw three picks, increasing his turnover total to 21 on the season (11 picks, 10 lost fumbles).
The rookie now has 18 touchdown passes this year and 20 total scores. He rushed for two touchdowns in the Week 3 win over Tampa Bay.
Jones (hopefully) and the Giants will kick off against the Eagles next Monday night at 8:15 p.m. ET.
