Jones will miss the rest of the season after an MRI on Monday confirmed that the quarterback suffered a torn ACL in his right knee during Sunday's 30-6 loss to the Raiders.

Jones, who had just returned to action after missing the Giants' previous three games with a neck injury, will undergo surgery on his knee. He finishes the 2023 season with a 67.5 percent completion rate, 5.7 YPA and 2:6 TD:INT to go with 40 carries for 206 rushing yards and a touchdown over six starts. The 26-year-old signed a four-year, $160 million contract extension in March and has a $35.5 million fully guaranteed salary for 2024 as he heads into what will be a roughly nine-month recovery from his ACL reconstruction surgery, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Despite the team's investment in Jones, the Giants could select a quarterback in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft, especially if the 2-7 club picks near the top of the draft. As for what's left of the 2023 season, all signs point to the Giants rolling with undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito as their starting quarterback beginning with this weekend's game in Dallas. Tyrod Taylor had started each of the previous three games that Jones had missed with his neck injury, but the veteran backup suffered a rib injury Week 8 and may not be ready to return from injured reserve when first eligible Week 14, according to Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports. The team also has Matt Barkley on its practice squad, but New York could look outside the organization for additional quarterback depth.
