Daniel Jones isn’t just gearing up for the start of the 2024 season, he has even more ambitious goals in mind.
In his first interview since undergoing knee surgery the day after Thanksgiving, the injured Giants quarterback said his anterior cruciate ligament repair is going well and he is already working on his rehabilitation.
As he walked through the Giants’ locker room at MetLife Stadium, he wore a knee brace that extended from his thigh to his ankle.
“The goal is definitely to be back in time for training camp,” Jones said. “I’m focused on what I’m doing right now and what’s in front of me, but the long-term goal is definitely to be back in time for training camp.”
A lot could change between now and then, including the Giants potentially drafting a quarterback to start with Jones.
So does he still think of himself as the franchise’s quarterback of the future?
“Yeah, sure,” Jones said. “I’m focused on rehabbing and getting back on the field.”
While his teammates practiced across the street, Jones presented Putnam Valley High School football team manager Eduardo Recinos with the 2023 USA Football Heart of a Giant Award.
Recinos won a $10,000 equipment grant for the program and received two tickets to the next Super Bowl in Las Vegas.
