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.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) avoided the PUP list to open training camp. He spent the offseason rehabbing from December Lisfranc surgery but was running and cutting by the end of June. Durability has been a major problem for Engram, who's missed 14 games over 3 NFL seasons. But he's also consistently produced as a top 7 fantasy TE when he's been on the field. He's a risk/reward pick at his 7th-round ADP.

Giants TE Evan Engram will undergo surgery on Friday to stabilize a tendon in his foot, he said. Engram added that he'll be "more than ready" for training camp. We'll monitor his rehab this offseason.

The Giants have placed TE Evan Engram (foot) on IR, ending his 2019 campaign. He's averaged an impressive 4.5 catches and 52 yards per game over his first 3 NFL seasons but has now missed 14 of a possible 48 games. Engram will be a risk/reward pick in 2020 fantasy football drafts. Rookie Kaden Smith will close out this season as New York's lead TE.

Giants TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) are out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That again leaves lead TE duties to Kaden Smith, who's averaged 6.3 targets over the past 3 weeks. He's a low-end spot-start option.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) isn't expected to play against the Dolphins this weekend, according to insider Art Stapleton. "Sprained foot is just not coming along fast enough to return yet. Zero sense to rush + risk further injury," Stapleton tweeted. We'll see if TE Rhett Ellison (concussion) makes it back for Sunday's game. If not, Kaden Smith will again serve as New York's lead TE.
