With the New York Giants heading into a must-win game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon, a few new faces showed up on the injury report to start practice this week.

New York Giants Injury Report:

1.) Evan Engram = Calf injury

Status: Limited



Update:

Starting tight end, Evan Engram has been battling his way back after suffering a calf injury against the New England Patriots in the final preseason game of the off-season. However, the Giants’ offense has missed him dearly in the meantime, forcing Kyle Rudolph into an uncomfortable role that he clearly was not prepared for.

The expectation is that Engram will be available this weekend against Atlanta, providing quarterback Daniel Jones with one of his favorite targets in the passing game. He was listed as limited during Thursday’s practice but was moving around well and running routes.

2.) Kenny Golladay = Hip injury

Status: Limited

Update:

Kenny Golladay has been dealing with a hamstring injury for the past few weeks, but an old hip issue has bubbled to the surface after last weekend’s loss to Washington. The team hasn’t made a big deal over Golladay’s hip injury, but he was seen standing around doing little during practice on Thursday. This is likely a load management situation for the Giants as they will need him against Atlanta.

3.) Logan Ryan = Hamstring injury

Status: Limited

Update:

A new face showed up on the injury report Thursday, and his name is Logan Ryan. As one of the leaders on defense, losing Ryan would be a significant blow to a unit that has struggled to get going this year. Ryan was limited during practice, but all signs point toward him featuring against the Falcons.

4.) Saquon Barkley = Knee injury

Status: Limited



Update:

Expect Saquon Barkley to be a frequent flyer on the injury report the season, at least until the midway point. Barkley is still rehabilitating and working his way back from a serious injury, so the Giants will be cautious with him during practice.

5.) Kaden Smith = Knee injury

Status: Limited

Update:

Reserve tight end Kaden Smith popped up on the injury report with a knee issue this week. I wouldn’t think too much of it, as he will likely be available on Sunday, even if Engram is ready to make his debut.

6.) Kadarius Toney = Ankle injury

Status: Limited

Update:

Despite coordinator Jason Garrett stating that Kadarius Toney simply wasn’t ready to take the field in a more serious fashion, an ankle injury could be the real reason behind his lack of work. Toney has only played in 19 snaps this year, but the Giants have vowed to get him more involved in the near future.

7.) Austin Johnson = Illness

Status: Limited

Update:

Interior defensive lineman Austin Johnson was dealing with an illness on Thursday, so unless it develops into something more serious, he should be ready to go against Atlanta on Sunday.

8.) Cam Brown = Hamstring

Status: Out

Update:

One of the Giants’ top special teams players, Cam Brown, has been dealing with a more severe hamstring injury which is kept him out for the past few days, including last weekend’s loss to Washington. I wouldn’t expect Brown to be available in Week 3, but he might be aiming for a Week 4 return.
