Daniel Jones’ third NFL season has come to an end.

After missing three of New York’s last games and not seeing enough progress to his neck injury to get back on the field, Jones was placed on injured reserve. The Giants announced on Monday that they shut down the 24-year-old quarterback for the last three games of the 2021 season.

Initially described as a strain, Jones’ neck injury was attained in New York’s Week 12 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Since then, he has not been cleared for contact and the Giants don’t have a reason to rush him back onto the field.

With the 2021 season approaching an end soon and the Giants’ 4-10 record, New York prioritizes Jones returning to action the following season. "We felt the prudent decision was to place Daniel on injured reserve for the remainder of the season. With continued rest and treatment, we expect a full recovery," Ronnie Barnes Giants senior vice president of medical services said in a statement.

New York will have to decide on Jones’ fully guaranteed fifth-year deal, that’s at approximately $21.369 million, by May 3. Jones is under contract through the 2022 season.

"Daniel is a very talented quarterback, very hard working and a good leader for us," Giants left tackle Andrew Thomas shared. "It sucks not being able to finish out the season with him, but definitely you want him to take his health seriously and make sure he’s 100 percent before he steps back on the field."
