The New York Giants were without their dynamic tight end Evan Engram in their Week 10 matchup against the New York Jets. Engram is dealing with a sprained foot that he suffered at the end of the Giants’ Week 9 rivalry-game with the Dallas Cowboys.
Week 10 was Evan Engram’s second time this season being inactive with an injury. He was also ruled out for the Giants’ Week 6 Thursday Night loss to the Patriots in New England. Evan’s current injury has kept him out for one game so far but has the potential to keep him out even longer.
Engram Still Not Practicing
Evan had some time to recover during the Giants’ Week 11 bye week. However, the recovery time might not have been enough. The Giants got back to practice on Monday, but Evan Engram was not a participant. Evan’s foot is still bothering him, and he is not yet ready to resume football activities.
Reason For Optimism
There is still reason for optimism regarding Evan Engram’s game status for this Sunday. Evan Engram did not practice on Monday, but he is out of his walking boot. A positive sign that Evan’s foot is recovering according to schedule.
When asked about his injury on Monday, Evan Engram stated that he was given a “2-4 week recovery time.” It has been two weeks since Engram suffered the injury, so he should be close to returning to action. Evan also mentioned that playing Sunday is “definitely possible.”
Evan Engram is ahead of schedule for his injury’s recovery time. He and head coach Pat Shurmur have not yet ruled out Evan playing on Sunday. The Giants will play the Chicago Bears on Sunday. The Bears have a stout defense, so they will need all the offensive weapons that they could get. But they also need to be careful to keep Engram from further injuring himself in a season that is lost at 2-8.
