Daniel Jones, QB (NYG)

Not practicing, not yet out Week 6

Giants head coach Joe Judge said Jones (concussion) won't practice Wednesday, but the quarterback is "on track with everything" in his recovery from the brain injury and hasn't yet been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Jones isn't believed to have an extensive history of concussions, but the one he suffered in last week's loss to the Cowboys looked fairly serious, as he struggled to get back on his feet after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit before being ruled out for the remainder of the contest. Though Judge was unwilling to dismiss the possibility of Jones clearing the five-step protocol before the weekend, the 24-year-old will likely need to make enough progress in his recovery to join his teammates for practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a legitimate shot at playing. On a positive note, Jones was at least in attendance for Wednesday's session in an observational role, with Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record noting that the signal-caller was donning a helmet and full pads while doing some throwing off to the side. Meanwhile, Mike Glennon is taking reps with the first-team offense Wednesday and would be in line to start if Jones is ruled out for Week 6.
