Daniel Jones says he’s learning to go down earlier to avoid injuries

Daniel Jones, the quarterback for the Giants, has never played a full NFL season.

One of his main goals for Year Four is to stay healthy enough to play the whole year.

Jones said that's why he's learning to avoid contact and slide sooner so he doesn't get hurt like he did in 2021

when he hurt his neck and 2020 when he hurt his hamstring.

"I think the most important thing is to be aware of what's going on and to decide to go down earlier. Jones said

 "I think there are things you can watch on tape and learn from, and I'll keep learning."

Jones is a good runner. So far in the NFL, he has carried the ball 172 times for a total of 1,000 yards, which is a great average of 5.8 yards per carry. 

But if Jones has to give up some rushing yards to stay healthy, the Giants will take that trade-off.
