Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle/hamstring) to start vs. Ravens

The New York Giants will have their QB1 for Sunday's pivotal matchup against the Ravens.

Daniel Jones, who has been dealing with ankle and hamstring injuries in recent weeks, will get the start in Week 16 against Baltimore, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Saturday.

Giants coach Joe Judge said Thursday that he was "really encouraged" by Jones' progress after the 23-year-old turned in a promising week of limited practices.

Jones has missed two of the last three games which led to New York turning to Colt McCoy in Week 13 against the Seahawks and Week 15 in a prime-time game versus the Browns. The Giants beat Seattle, but fell to Cleveland last Sunday for their second consecutive loss.

The 5-9 Giants are currently tied for second place with the Cowboys in the lowly NFC East. A victory over Baltimore would help N.Y. keep pace with division leader Washington (6-8).

Should the Giants lose or tie Sunday, Washington could clinch the division with a win over Carolina.
