Daniel Jones arrived at the Giants facility on Wednesday “deep in the playbook and ready to work,’’ according to head coach Joe Judge.  The mind was wiling but the body is not yet able.

“Really we’re waiting to hear a lot of feedback from the trainers,” Judge said.

So, no dramatic update on the status of Jones’ strained right hamstring.

The Giants held what Judge called a “hybrid’’ practice, containing individual and group periods, followed by a team walk-through. Jones was to work with the training staff to determine what, if anything, he could participate in during this lighter practice day.

“We’ll kind of see what he’s able to do [Wednesday] and that will really help us plan out more [Thursday] and Friday,’’ Judge said.

Backup Colt McCoy and Clayton Thorson from the practice squad are the two healthy and available quarterback options. 

“We’ll actually vary that a little bit,’’ Judge said.  “Colt with take the majority [of the first-team reps].  We have to see where Daniel’s at physically and what he can do with the trainers, until we have that answer I can’t give you an absolute answer on that.  We’ll kind of run Thorson on through as well, make sure he gets his share of reps and get them prepared to play.’’

Jones hurt his hamstring on a seven-yard run in the third quarter of the Week 12 19-17 victory in Cincinnati.  He is not expected to play in Sunday’s game against the Seahawks in Seattle.

“I think like a lot of our guys Daniel’s a guy that’s very competitive, he’s got a tremendous work ethic and he’s a very tough guy,’’ Judge said.  “You’ve got to pull a lot of these guys back because they’re coming in wired with the mindset they’re getting ready for a game.  As coaches it’s our responsibility sometimes to protect players from themselves.’’
