Bad news for Big Blue: The Giants could be without tight end Evan Engram for roughly the first month of the season. The Athletic's Dan Duggan reports that a trip to injured reserve isn't off the table for Engram, who missed practice Tuesday with a calf injury. Landing on IR would guarantee Engram is out at least three games to start the year.

The big news from this morning: Patriots coach Bill Belichick says Cam Newton's release had nothing to do with his COVID vaccination status. Newton has not confirmed whether or not he's fully vaccinated, but he wore a mask throughout camp, indicating he is unvaccinated. This comes hours after Jaguars coach Urban Meyer suggested players' vaccination status informed Jacksonville's decision-making during final roster cuts. At any rate, Newton is a free agent, and the Pats are Mac Jones' team.
