Progressing well through protocol
Giants head coach Joe Judge said Jones (concussion) will be a non-contact participant in Thursday's practice, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. "At this point everything looks positive," Judge said, when asked about Jones' chances of playing Sunday against the Rams.
After sustaining the concussion in the Giants' Week 5 loss to the Cowboys, Jones was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, but the fact that he was donning full pads and a helmet while throwing off to the side in the session was a positive sign that he was progressing through the five-step protocol. Jones' ability to take part in non-contact drills seemingly represents another step forward, though it's unclear if the quarterback's activity will translate to a "limited" listing on the Giants' official injury report. Mike Glennon will stay prepared to start Sunday against the Rams in the event Jones can't clear the protocol in time, but for the time being, the Giants appear optimistic that their top signal-caller will be available. If Jones suits up this weekend, Judge told Tom Rock of Newsday that the game plan wouldn't be altered to limit the quarterback's exposure to contact, so Jones should still have plenty of involvement as a runner.
