Head coach Pat Shurmur previously stated the New York Giants will have an open competition for the team's starting quarterback position, however, that may not be the case.

Eli Manning has already been tabbed to be the Week 1 starter over rookie Daniel Jones prior to any training camp battle, sources told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Shurmur apparently hinted at an open competition in order to prepare Jones for a scenario where he would be needed in case of an injury, Garafolo added.

Manning, 38, is entering his 16th season in the league after consecutive disappointing campaigns, while the 22-year-old Jones was the Giants' sixth overall selection in this year's draft.

Manning threw for 4,299 yards, 21 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions last year, and will be without Odell Beckham Jr. in 2019.
