New York Giants Player News: All Positions

News: Ellison caught his only target, an eight yard gain, during Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Bills.
Impact: One catch for eight yards is how Ellison has come out in each of the first two games of the season. The Giants, outside of some big plays by Saquon Barkley and TE1 Evan Engram, haven't gotten much done to start the season, necessitating the beginning of the Daniel Jones era. Jones looked promising in the preseason, but Ellison's role in the offense is unlikely to change substantially even if Jones proves to be an upgrade.
News: The Giants announced Tuesday that Daniel Jones will replace Manning as the team's starting quarterback Week 3 versus the Buccaneers.
Impact: Former head coach Ben McAdoo memorably benched Manning in favor of Geno Smith for one game in 2017, but the two-time Super Bowl MVP's move to the bench looks to be permanent this time around. The Manning-led offense sputtered in two rather non-competitive losses to begin the season, with the signal-caller completing 62.9 percent of his passes for only 6.2 yards per attempt to go with three turnovers (two interceptions, one lost fumble). Jones, a rookie first-round selection, showcased an accurate arm in the preseason and during garbage time in the Week 1 loss to the Cowboys, which likely made coach Pat Shurmur more comfortable in pulling the plug on Manning. The 38-year-old, who carries a $23.2 million cap hit this season, now becomes the NFL's priciest backup quarterback.
News: The Giants announced Tuesday that Jones will take over as their starting quarterback Week 3 against the Buccaneers.
Impact: After Eli Manning turned in a rough showing in Sunday's loss to the Bills, coach Pat Shurmur gave no assurances that the veteran would retain the top spot on the depth chart. The 0-2 Giants will now turn the offense over to Jones, who displayed an accurate arm in the preseason and offers a more mobile option in the pocket than Manning. The rookie could have some ups and downs in his initial run as the starter, but he'll at least gain some meaningful experience in 2019 and help the Giants assess whether he's their long-term solution behind center.
