Shurmur: QB Jones will see more reps against Bears

Giants coach Pat Shurmur said all four of his quarterbacks will see playing time when New York hosts the Chicago Bears in Friday night's preseason game. And he plans on getting an extended look at rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, the No. 6 overall pick in the NFL draft in June.

Jones was on the field in last week's preseason opener against the Jets for just eight plays and about 4 1/2 minutes. He was 5-of-5 passing for 67 yards and a touchdown, but his action was limited because of a weather delay. "The plan, obviously, last week was to play him longer," Shurmur said. "But with the delay, I shut down that whole group and restarted a new group. That was the idea. Ideally, the way last week played out would have been for Eli (Manning) to play a few more plays (than three snaps), and then Daniel Jones to play a few more plays."

Shurmur did not disclose how long Jones or Manning or any of the quarterbacks would play. The Giants' other QBs are veteran Alex Tanney and Kyle Lauletta, in his second season. "I do plan on playing all four quarterbacks, like I did last week," Shurmur said. "We'll see. I'd like to see Eli get a little bit more time. We'll just see how that plays out. But there's a chance that he (Jones) could play behind the one (offensive) line.

"I think Daniel's going to play throughout (the preseason). We'll just have to see how it plays out. I think it's important for him to compete in all four of the games, and certainly you'd like him to get as many reps as you can as he gets himself ready to play." Jones said he's ready for whatever Shurmur's plan is.

"I think for everyone, it's just to build off what we've done, what we did in that first game, and what we've done since then, and kind of taking the next step as a team," Jones said. "I think with each group, it's just building off what we've done."
