New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has reportedly avoided a serious injury after leaving Sunday’s win against the Cincinnati Bengals with a hamstring issue.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Jones’ hamstring was evaluated Monday and while he’s still injured, it’s not major.

Jones left Sunday’s game in the third quarter after tweaking his hamstring on a short run. After attempting to stay in the game and crumpling to the ground following a pass attempt, he was replaced with his backup, Colt McCoy.

Giants fans and the entire Giants organization are probably breathing big sighs of relief. While McCoy was fine in relief, Danny Dimes is who they want throwing passes. With the Giants tied for first place in the NFC East and facing four straight teams with winning records, they’re going to need him if they have any hope of staying afloat.

Rapoport reported that there’s a chance that Jones could be healed enough to play the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, but the Giants aren’t counting on that. They’ll draw up game plans that feature both Jones and McCoy.
