Giants QB Tyrod Taylor taken to local hospital after suffering ribs injury in loss to Jets

New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor suffered a ribs injury in the first half of Sunday's 13-10 overtime loss to the Jets and was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation, the team announced.

Brian Daboll did not have any updates on Taylor following the game.

"Prayers go out to him," the Giants head coach said. "I hope he's OK."

NFL Network Insider Mike Garafolo reported on Sunday that Taylor will remain hospitalized overnight for further observation.

Taylor was injured midway through the second quarter after he attempted to run after catching a deflected pass. Taylor was taken down by Jets defenders Quinnen Williamsand C.J. Mosley, and Taylor immediately was attended to by trainers.

Taylor was starting his third consecutive game in relief of Daniel Jones, who is still recovering from a neck injury he suffered earlier this season. NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported on Sunday morning that Jones' injury is not considered a season-ending one, but one of the issues is that it has caused significant weakness in his left (non-throwing) arm

Rookie Tommy DeVito, who signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois, replaced Taylor under center.

Daboll and the Giants did not let DeVito test a tough Jets secondary in rainy conditions. DeVito did not complete a pass until overtime and finished the game 2 of 7 for -1 yard. He did, however, convert a rushing touchdown and finished with 12 yards total on the ground.
