The optimism comes with the caveat that if Glennon isn't cleared after suffering a concussion in the Giants' Week 13 loss to Miami, Fromm would make his first NFL start. Big Blue signed the former fifth-round pick off the Bills practice squad last week.
Fromm is taking the starter reps in practice this week until Glennon is cleared.
"It's a lot of learning," said Fromm regarding his preparation, per Newsday. "It's like preparing for a final test and you didn't show up for any of the classes. But it's fun."
In his first start for the Giants, Glennon went 23-of-44 passing for 187 yards and an INT and took three sacks in the 20-9 loss in Miami, averaging just 4.25 yards per attempt. As bad a matchup as the statuesque QB might be against Joey Bosa and the Chargers' pass rushers, Fromm making his first career start would be a markedly worse option for Judge.
Starter Daniel Jones has not been cleared for contact after suffering a neck injury and will not play this week. But Judge reiterated that there are no indications it's a season-ending injury for Jones.
