Daniel Jones practices fully in London; 7 ruled out


WARE, HERTFORDSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM – Brian Daboll today spoke to reporters prior to practice, while Daniel Jones had a post-practice meeting with the American and European media.

Neither said definitively that Jones will be the Giants' starting quarterback when they play the Green Bay Packers Sunday in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, despite a) the quarterback has practiced all week, b) the coach reiterated Jones is improving, C) Jones said again today he feels good, and c) he's not on the team's final injury report.

"We'll see," Daboll said. "He did better yesterday than he did the day before. We'll see how it is after the long flight; come out here and practice. But he looked good yesterday, too."

Jones didn't just look good…

"I'm feeling good," he said. "Feeling good. I think I've felt better every day out at practice. And yeah, feeling good."

Does he expect to play?

"We'll see how this next day or so goes," Jones said. "But like I said, felt good today at practice."

If Jones looks good and feels good, what more does Daboll need to see before giving Jones the green light?

"Just another good day," he said. "I think, again, he's made progress since the last game. Each day, he's gotten a little bit better. Again, being on the airplane for a while and go out there and let him loosen up, run around a little bit. But he's been getting a lot better."

While it appears the Giants will have their starter, they will certainly be without his backup. Tyrod Taylor suffered a concussion in last week's victory against Chicago and though he's made progress, he will not be in uniform Sunday.

That will elevate No. 3 quarterback Davis Webb into the backup role. Webb has never thrown an NFL regular season pass.

*In addition to Taylor, three wide receivers were among the seven players the Giants declared out for Sunday's game.

The wideouts who will not be in uniform are Kenny Golladay (knee), Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and rookie Wan'Dale Robinson (knee). Golladay will miss his first game of the season, Toney his third and Robinson his fourth.

Also out are linebacker Azeez Ojulari (calf) and cornerback Cor'Dale Flott (calf).

Defensive lineman Leonard Williams, who missed the last two games with a knee injury, is questionable.

*Toney, in addition to Flott, Golladay and Ojulari, remained in New Jersey after suffering a new hamstring injury in practice this week. The second-year receiver has had recurring hamstring issues.

"It was the other hamstring, not the one that he's had," Daboll said. "I feel bad for him. He was running around. He was getting a lot better. And, unfortunately, he tweaked it a little bit. So, we'll just get him treatment and get him ready as we can."
