EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Eli Manning's long and distinguished reign as the New York Giants' starting quarterback is seemingly over. Let the Daniel Jones era begin.

Coach Pat Shurmur announced Tuesday that the No. 6 overall pick in the NFL draft is replacing the two-time Super Bowl MVP as the Giants' quarterback, beginning Sunday at Tampa Bay.

The move comes less than 24 hours after Shurmur refused to say Manning would remain the starter following two straight losses, the sixth time in seven years New York has gotten off to a 0-2 start.


QB Newton re-aggravates foot injury

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Cam Newton's status for Sunday's game at Arizona is uncertain after the 2015 league MVP reaggravated a mid-foot sprain.

Newton did not practice Tuesday and Panthers coach Ron Rivera gave no timetable for his QB's potential return, saying "He's going to get his treatment, we'll see how he feels and we'll adjust to it as we go through it."

Ramsey wants out, will play Thursday

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jalen Ramsey arrived for the season in the back of an armored truck , sending a clear message to the Jacksonville Jaguars about his worth.

Patriots place tackle Wynn on IR again

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The Patriots have placed left tackle Isaiah Wynn on injured reserve, marking the latest blow to an already injury-riddled offensive line.

The Patriots filled Wynn's roster spot Tuesday by signing veteran lineman Caleb Benenoch, who has played in 35 games with 22 starts for Tampa Bay over the past four seasons.
