Giants QB Daniel Jones has been playing well against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, but on a rushing attempt up the middle, he suffered a hamstring injury that forced him off the field. Now, he is questionable to return.

Jones was grabbing the back of his leg and tried to play on it. However, after converting on third down, Jones went to the turf. He would eventually go to the Giants' medical tent to be evaluated.

He tried to come back in the game but didn't last more than two plays before he ran over to the sideline.

"Felt it on that play and didn't feel like I could run on it really or do what I needed to do to be effective and move the ball and throw it accurate," Jones said. "So just look to rehab it and do whatever I can to heal up fast."

Jones added that he's never had this kind of injury before in the past, but says he'll see what the medical staff says. 

Colt McCoy came in to play the position, and helped lead the Giants to a win. He played very conservative but did what he had to do to get the job done. 

After the win, which pushed the Giants into first place in the NFC East, head coach Joe Judge said that Jones will undergo an MRI on his hamstring to see the severity of the injury. 

"I don't really know much," Judge said. "I talked to him on the sidelines in terms of how he was. It was at a point where he couldn't continue in the game, which takes an awful lot for a tough dude. So we'll kinda take a look and see what it is."
