New York Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones will return Sunday at the Redskins after missing the past two games with a high ankle sprain.
The Giants (3-11) officially cleared Jones to return today after he practiced without limitations this week.
Coach Pat Shurmur said Jones will start, barring anything unforeseen, while veteran Eli Manning heads back to the bench.
“He looked good,” Shurmur said of Jones this week. “He’s prepared and ready to go.”
Manning started the past two weeks and helped the Giants snap a nine-game losing streak. They defeated the Miami Dolphins at home in a game that was treated by fans as a sendoff for Manning.
