Daniel Jones had a training session on Wednesday, which brought him one step closer to being on the field on Sunday.
The Giants defender is still in the concussion protocol, but he wore a pillow, ran, worked with coaches and was sidelined in training before the game against the Rams at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.
There is a five-step protocol for cleaning Jones, and it appears in the second stage (aerobic exercise) or in the third (football-specific exercise). Next-contactless teamwork and finally, full activity / cleansing.
Joe Judge said they are preparing both Jones and substitute Mike Glennon for Sunday, and “does not rule out” that head coach Jones will start training this week even if he is not a full participant.
“We have to look at what it’s going to be like for the game, physically and mentally,” the referee said.
Jones was knocked down by cowboys Gabriel Cox at the goal line and came out awake last Sunday. He did not return after the second quarter kick. The anticipation of this weekend will be with Rams studi Aaron Donald, so the Giants want Jones to be in good health.
The practice was also attended by Sterling Shepard (pelvis), Darius Slayton (pelvis) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) wide receivers. Gabriel Peppers (hamstring) also trained and looks ready for Sunday.
Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Kenny Golladay (knee) did not train with the team.
