Engram caught two of his four targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 23-19 win over the Cowboys. Engram tied for second on the team in targets, though his four looks were well behind team-leader Sterling Shepard's 10. He recorded a long gain of 14 yards but managed a short pickup with his other grab and later dropped a pass on what could've been a big play. Engram was held to 35 yards or less in nine of his 16 appearances this season but still finishes with 654 yards, one touchdown and a Pro Bowl nod. Moreover, he could find himself playing in the postseason if the Eagles defeat Washington on Sunday night.
Engram (calf) isn't on the injury report for Sunday's game against Dallas, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Neither is wideout Sterling Shepard (rib), but slot man Golden Tate (calf) is listed as doubtful. The Giants' struggling passing game will likely go through Engram, Shepard and Darius Slayton, just as it has all season.
Engram (calf) was limited at Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Engram has made it through a season relatively unscathed for the first time in four years as a pro, but he hurt his left ankle in the fourth quarter of this past Sunday's defeat at Baltimore. So far this week, his practice reps have been capped, but Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com noted Engram seemed to be "more involved" Thursday than he was at Wednesday's session. Friday's practice report will provide a sense of Engram's odds to play Sunday versus the Cowboys.
Engram (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. During the media-access portion of the practice, Engram was spotted working out on the side with trainers, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic. Engram evidently increased his activity behind the scenes, and the Giants appear optimistic about his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Cowboys. The tight end will still likely need to upgrade to full participation in practice by Friday to avoid taking a designation into the Week 17 contest.
Engram (ankle) is slated to practice in some capacity Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Head coach Joe Judge has expressed a degree of optimism that Engram will be able to play Sunday against the Cowboys, a notion supported by the tight end's presence on the practice field Wednesday. Engram suffered the ankle injury late in last week's loss to the Ravens, finishing the day with 70 yards from scrimmage on eight touches.
