Confirmed for Week 13 start
Glennon is slated to start Sunday's game against the Dolphins after New York head coach Joe Judge ruled Daniel Jones (neck) out for the contest, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Though Jones has been practicing on a limited basis this week, Judge noted that the third-year signal-caller won't be able to start Sunday since team doctors haven't cleared him to take contact while he contends with a neck strain. Glennon, who has also been taking reps with the first-team offense this week, will thus make his first start of the season with the Giants, after his lone previous action came in relief of a concussed Jones in Week 5 against the Cowboys. Over his most recent run as an NFL starter with the Jaguars in 2020, Glennon completed 62 percent of his passes for 6.0 yards per attempt and a 7:5 TD:INT over a five-game stretch. Given his unremarkable career numbers, lack of rushing contributions and matchup with a Miami pass defense that's turned a corner in recent weeks, Glennon likely won't be worthy of consideration outside of leagues that start two quarterbacks or have a superflex spot.
