Evan Engram Injury Updates

Giants TE Rhett Ellison has been placed in the concussion protocol. A Week 11 bye helps his chances of not missing a game. His status for Week 12 will only matter if TE Evan Engram remains out with his foot injury.

Giants TE Evan Engram will not play Sunday because of the mid-foot sprain to his left foot, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. Engram reportedly called it a "low-grade" sprain and said it's not a Lisfranc injury. He hopes to return after the well-timed Week 11 bye. Rhett Ellison should start in Engram's place. Ellison ranked 3rd in the team with 7 targets when Engram missed the Week 6 loss to New England. Ellison also totaled 20 targets across 4 games he played without Engram in the lineup last season -- including 6 targets apiece in weeks 12 and 13. He's in the fantasy-starter mix for Sunday's game against the Jets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Giants TE Evan Engram's status "uncertain" with the foot injury he suffered in Monday night's loss to the Cowboys. The MRI results on the foot were sent to Dr. Robert Anderson for a 2nd opinion, Schefter reports. We'll keep a close eye on this, but Engram owners need to line up a backup plan for Week 10.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) practiced in full all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s dream matchup against the Cardinals’ league-worst TE defense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter says there's "a real chance" that Giants TE Evan Engram won't be able to play against the Patriots on Thursday night. Engram is dealing with a sprained MCL. That he hasn't yet been publicly ruled out indicates this may not be too serious an injury -- i.e. beyond Week 6 -- but make sure you plan for an Engram replacement as your league runs waivers this week.

The Giants have ruled WR Odell Beckham out for Sunday’s game at Washington. Beckham shows up on the Friday injury report as a limited participant after sustaining a quad bruise. The team today determined that he won’t be able to play. That obviously raises the target ceilings for WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram, while also lowering the fantasy floor for QB Eli Manning. Fortunately, he didn’t look attractive for lineups anyway. The loss of 1 of the Giants’ 2 best players also raises the floor for the Washington defense, which is a decent streaming option.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He put in full practices on both Thursday and Friday. Engram is sitting just 19th among TEs in PPR points per game and returns as a low-end TE1 option.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll return for what should be a high-scoring affair against the Falcons on Monday night. Engram sits inside TE1 territory in the Week 7 Rankings.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) "has a shot" to play against the Eagles on Thursday night, HC Pat Shurmur said Monday. Engram will be 2-and-a-half weeks removed at that point from an injury that was expected to sideline him 2-4 weeks. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation over the next couple of days.

Giants TE Evan Engram injured his knee in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Texans and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along another update when we get one.

UPDATE: Engram has been ruled out.

Giants TE Evan Engram (ankle) is not listed on the final injury report. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. Engram is locked in as a solid TE1 play against a Texans defense that Football Outsiders ranks 30th in TE coverage.

Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) is expected to be ready for the team's opener next weekend, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. Engram will be 16 days removed from his head injury when the G-Men kick off against the Jaguars. We'll have more updates on his progress this coming week.

Giants TE Evan Engram was limited in Wednesday's practice with a concussion. (Because we needed more injury problems at TE.) ESPN's Jordan Raanan says Engram was placed in the protocol as a "precaution." And the fact that he was able to get in a limited workout gives him a good chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Eagles. We'll continue to monitor his status.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard was carted off the field during Wednesday's practice. Trainers were reportedly working on his right leg. "He's in serious pain ... Apparently in tears. Not good," ESPN's Jordan Raanan tweeted. We should learn more soon, but this obviously has the look of a serious injury. Shepard's absence would likely mean target boosts for WR Brandon Marshall and TE Evan Engram. Stay tuned.
