Mike Glennon suffered a concussion Sunday against the Dolphins and the woeful Giants offense could be about to start a recent fourth-string quarterback.
Already without Daniel Jones because of a neck injury, Glennon started and finished a 20-9 loss to the Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium. He completed 23 of 44 passes for 187 yards with an interception and took a beating behind an offensive line that could not handle a blitz-heavy defense.
Glennon’s diagnosis was revealed after the game by the team. He is headed for the five-step NFL-mandated concussion protocol, which means Jake Fromm could take the lead when the Giants return to the practice field Wednesday for a remote work week in Tucson, Ariz.
Fromm was the fourth-string quarterback for the Bills — idling behind former Giants draft pick Davis Webb as the second of two quarterbacks on the practice squad — as recently as Monday. The Giants signed him to their active roster on Tuesday and he was dressed Sunday for his first NFL regular-season game as Glennon’s backup.
The Giants also have Brian Lewerke — who has never played in an NFL game — on their practice quad.
