Eli Benched; Daniel Jones Named Giants Starting QB

"Eli was obviously disappointed, as you would expect, but he said he would be what he has always been, a good teammate, and continue to prepare to help this team win games," coach Pat Shurmur said.


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork)Daniel Jones has been named Giants starting quarterback, the team announced Tuesday.

The switch was made just two games into Jones’ rookie season.

“Eli was obviously disappointed, as you would expect, but he said he would be what he has always been, a good teammate, and continue to prepare to help this team win games,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “Daniel understands the challenge at hand, and he will be ready to play on Sunday.”

The Giants are 0-2. They’re set to face the the Tampa Buccaneers Sunday.

“Ultimately, this is a move that I felt was best for this team at this time. I have said it since I got here, I am very fond of Eli. His work ethic, his preparation, his football intelligence. All those attributes are as good as I have ever seen in a player.”
