Daniel Jones carted off after taking big hit in Giants-Cowboys

Daniel Jones was ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Cowboys after suffering a concussion in a collision at the goal line.

Jones was wobbly and needed help to stay on his feet before being carted off the field in the second quarter.

The Giants quarterback tried to power his way into the end zone on a third-and-goal bootleg but went helmet-to-helmet with linebacker Jabril Cox and smacked his head into the turf. Jones, 24, stayed on the ground for a few extra tickets, got to his feet, bent over and then tried to walk but stumbled as a Cowboys player grabbed hold.

Giants trainers came out to check on Jones, who was put on a cart and taken to the locker room. The warning signs will likely have him checked for a concussion, though he left holding his knee on the cart.

The devastating hits just keep coming for the Giants, who started the game without left tackle Andrew Thomas (foot), receiver Sterling Shepard (hamstring), receiver Darius Slayton (hamstring) and then lost Saquon Barkley (ankle) in the first quarter.

Mike Glennon replaced Jones and handed off to Devontae Booker, who leaped over the pile for the game-tying touchdown with 2:51 to go in the second quarter. Jones has missed two starts in each of his first two seasons.
