Shurmur: Eli 'very likely' to start vs. Eagles

Eli's back Daniel Jones right has a sprained ankle so Eli Manning left will likely start for the New York Giants on Monday

New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur announced Wednesday that quarterback Daniel Jones might not be able to play Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles because of a "moderate" high ankle sprain. He was injured at the end of a run in the second quarter Sunday against the Packers but stayed in the game and thought he was in line to play this week.

For context, Giants running back Saquon Barkley missed three games earlier this season due to a high ankle sprain.

As a matter of fact, there's also a chance that Manning could end up being the starter for the rest of the season, and that's because Jones is dealing with a high-ankle sprain that now has him in a walking boot.

If Manning does start, it will be his first time on the field since Week 2. He won his first two career starts but has lost eight straight as the Giants were eliminated from the playoffs. After blowout losses to both the Cowboys (35-17) and the Bills (28-14), Shurmur made a decision to bench Manning and turn the starting job over to the rookie Jones. Through two games, the two-time Super Bowl victor threw for 556 yards on 56-for-89 passing with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He hasn't beaten the Eagles since November 6, 2016. However, four of those five losses were by five points or less, which could make things interesting on Monday.
