Mike Glennon is expected to start in his place, per the report.
Jones suffered the injury early in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles and is considered week-to-week moving forward, according to the report. He completed 19-of-30 passes for 202 yards with a touchdown and no turnovers in the 13-7 win.
Jones, 24, has started every game this season for the 4-7 Giants. Glennon's made one appearance in 2021, filling in for a concussed Jones in a 44-20 Week 5 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He completed 16-of-25 passes that day for 162 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. The eight-year veteran started five games for the Jacksonville Jaguars last season, completing 62% of his passes for 214.4 yards per game while throwing seven interceptions and five touchdowns.
Despite their 4-7 start, the Giants aren't out of the playoff hunt in an NFC race that would see the 5-6 Washington Football Team qualify for the postseason if they started this week. They'll need their backup quarterback to perform well against a streaking Dolphins team to maintain their slim postseason hopes.
The Dolphins have won four straight games after a 1-7 start and are likewise fighting for their own long-shot playoff hopes. They'll host Sunday's game.
