Daniel Jones of Giants visits another spine surgeon, undergoes more tests on neck injuries
Daniel Jones did not dedicate the field to Giant‘last two games after suffering a neck injury in the previous team’s Week 12 win Eagle. And it will probably be a while before he can play again. The third-year quarterback will fly back to the New York area Sunday night with an MRI scheduled, plus a test with a spine surgeon on Monday, as reported by Ralph Vacchiano SNY.
Dr. Frank Cammisa, who specializes in surgery for spinal disorders at New York City’s Hospital for Special Surgery, will see Jones on Monday, according to Vacchiano. This will come a week after Jones meets Dr. Robert Watkins III, an orthopedic spine surgeon, in Los Angeles. Watkins did not give Jones contact before the Giants’ Sunday game against Charger, as SNY reported.
A source with knowledge of the orthopedic field told CBS Sports that experts are likely trying to determine if Jones has damaged ligaments or even potentially a spinal cord bruise. . Both of those impairments could keep Jones off the field indefinitely – perhaps for the rest of the Giants’ 2021 season. But the MRI was also able to return positive results that helped speed up his recovery.
Giants coach Joe Judge previously said the team would be “very deliberate and cautious” in handling Jones’ return from injury. Backup Mike Glennon started New York’s last two games, in which the Giants were 57-30 down in two losses. All signs suggest he is gearing up to start his third straight game next Sunday with Cowboys.
