By and large, it seems like Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales overall includes fewer sly references and Easter eggs than the previous video game, Marvel's Spider-Man, but it does have its fair share. Notably, the standalone video game keeps much of what was in the previous title, including the Lockjaw statue on Wall Street, but there is also yet another Inhumans Easter egg in the video game, apparently.
Specifically, a player discovered a second, smaller Lockjaw statue inside one of the game's many hideouts. It looks pretty much exactly like the larger statue of the Inhumans' companion, and could very well be just an appropriately sized version of the same asset. Lockjaw, if you're not familiar, is a teleporting dog that regularly features in stories about the Inhumans, including Kamala Khan's Ms. Marvel.

As to why there even exists a giant Lockjaw statue in the Spider-Man video games in the first place, the short version is: lawyers. Insomniac Games wasn't able to use the Charging Bull statue that exists in the real-life physical location for legal reasons, so the company made up a new statue to replace it.
