Sixth-round pick Greg Jones will most likely be the Giants' starter at middle linebacker this Sunday.
The Giants are fully expected to sign a veteran free agent to take Jonathan Goff's place on the roster, but it's unlikely they would be ready to start by this Sunday. Jones ran with the Giants' third teamers during training camp, and could get eaten up by Tim Hightower and the Redskins' rushing attack this weekend.
