MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Did Logan Ryan take a shot at Tua Tagovailoa? Or was he engaging in some self-deprecating analysis of his prowess as a high school quarterback? 

The Giants are approaching a dire situation at quarterback, with Daniel Jones’ status uncertain as he sat out Sunday’s 20-9 loss to the Dolphins with a strained neck. Mike Glennon, the backup-turned-starter, sustained a concussion in the game. The only other quarterback on the roster, Jake Fromm, was signed last week off the Bills’ practice squad and has never thrown a pass in an NFL game. The Giants have a quarterback, Brian Lewerke, on their practice squad. He, too, has never appeared in an NFL game. 

Ryan, a safety, is offering his services, hearkening back to his days throwing it for Eastern Regional High School in Voorhees, N.J.

“Look, I don’t know if you guys saw my high school quarterback tape, but I’m going to put it out there, emergency,’’ Ryan said. “A lot like Tua, a lefty. I can throw 2-yard passes to the left. I’m accurate. I’m smart. I’m going to put it out there. But, look, we’re going to do what we’ve got to do.” 


A knock on Tagovailoa is his inability to push the ball down the field and for his penchant for dumping the ball off on short routes. He completed 30 passes for only 244 yards against the Giants but he had two touchdown passes and did not throw an interception.

“He’s a very accurate passer,’’ cornerback James Bradberry said. “He has a quick release too. So [the] quick game goes hand in hand with some of his strengths.’’ 


Despite a flare-up of an elbow injury, Nate Solder was able to start at right tackle. Matt Peart’s slide down the depth chart continues. Peart could not even get on the field when the Giants went with their jumbo package, as Korey Cunningham was used in a role Peart previously filled. 

Little-used Ben Bredeson got some snaps late in the game at left guard, replacing Matt Skura. 


WR Kenny Golladay left in the first half with a rib injury when he said “I kind of felt something pop,’’ but he was able to return after halftime. He said an X-ray revealed there are no fractured ribs. “I don’t think it’s too serious,’’ he said. 

Daniel Jones made it onto the field — very early, even before team warm-ups. Jones went through a lengthy passing session, throwing to Sterling Shepard — out with a quad injury — and practice-squad receiver David Sills. Kadarius Toney made an appearance but did not do any running. He is also dealing with a quad injury and missed his second straight game. He has not played in three of the past four games. 

Oshane Ximines received a one-game reprieve last week but was back to being a healthy scratch for this game. 


The Giants did not return home after the game. They will spend the week in Tucson, Ariz., practicing at the University of Arizona, before heading to Los Angeles for their Week 14 game against the Chargers.
