New York Giants head coach Joe Judge had expressed optimism for weeks that quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) would return this year, but that’s not going to happen.

The team announced on Monday that Jones has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

“Over the course of the past few weeks, Daniel has been examined by Dr. Frank Cammisa of Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. Robert Watkins of the Marina Spine Center at Marina Del Rey Hospital. Our medical team has continued to consult with Dr. Cammisa and Dr. Watkins regarding Daniel’s condition and symptoms, and at this point, Daniel has not been cleared for contact. We felt the prudent decision was to place Daniel on injured reserve for the remainder of the season. With continued rest and treatment, we expect a full recovery,” Senior Vice President, Medical Services/Head Athletic Trainer Ronnie Barnes said in a statement.
