It looks like New York Giants will have to turn to Eli Manning once again to finish the season. According to NFL Network, Giants’ starting quarterback Daniel Jones will be forced to sit out two to four weeks with a high-ankle sprain. This means that the rookie will most likely miss the remainder of the season.

With Jones out, Manning reclaimed the starting position he lost in Week 3. This will be a chance for the two times Super Bowl MVP to say a proper goodbye to fans before a likely retirement at the end of the season.

Manning was a starter at the beginning of 2019, but he had two bad performances, in which he threw for 556 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, causing him to lose his job to Daniel Jones. Giants selected Jones sixth overall in the most recent NFL draft, and decided he will give them a better chance of competing this season.

Jones had his own ups and downs, managing to complete 61.6 percent of his passes for 2,374 and 18 TDs. Giants were 2-8 with Jones as their QB.

Giants play Miami Dolphins at home in Week 15, before facing Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles to finish off the season.
