New York owner John Mara said earlier this month he’d be happy if Jones didn’t play one snap this season. The report notes that as long as the Giants “are in the race and he’s healthy and playing well, it’s not Manning’s job to lose. It’s just his job.”The Giants selected Jones, 22, out of Duke with the No. 6 pick in the 2019 draft. Fans criticized the team’s choice, but he has completed 16 of his 19 passes for 228 yards with a pair of touchdowns in two preseason appearances.
