Engram has been sidelined during offseason workouts due to a minor hamstring injury, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Head coach Pat Shurmur and the Giants don't appear overly concerned with Engram's health; they are just being cautious with the tight end after he dealt with a hamstring injury for most of last season. Shurmur said Tuesday that they are being "smart" with Engram, but the expectation is that he will be good to go by the time training camp rolls around.
Engram could benefit from added volume with Odell Beckham no longer a member of the Giants, Ralph Vacchiano of Sportsnet New York reports.
Engram averaged 3.5 catches for 38 yards in the 11 games he played with Beckham in the lineup the past two seasons, compared to 4.7 receptions for 59 yards in 15 games without the superstar wideout. Granted, the Giants seem to be moving toward a run-first offense led by Saquon Barkley and an improved line, plus they signed Golden Tate to handle a good chunk of Beckham's vacated targets. Engram made a strong case for himself at the end of an injury-plagued 2018 campaign, finishing the year with four consecutive games of at least 75 yards. He's a viable candidate to lead the team in 2019 targets, but the same can be said for Barkley, Tate or Sterling Shepard.
Engram caught five of eight targets for 81 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 36-35 loss to the Cowboys.
Engram led the team in catches and receiving yards while tying for second in targets. A large chunk of his production came on a 51-yard catch and run while he also contributed with a six-yard touchdown grab in the third quarter. While Engram got off to an inauspicious start to the season, he finished strong by contributing at least 75 receiving yards in each of his last four games. He'll close out the season with 45 catches for 577 yards and three touchdowns in 11 appearances. The 24-year-old could be one of the biggest winners from a fantasy perspective if the team moves on from aging quarterback Eli Manning in the offseason.
Engram caught all six of his targets for 87 yards and added 26 yards on two carries during Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Colts.
Engram helped give the Giants a third-quarter lead when he laid out for a 32-yard grab, setting up an Eli Manning touchdown run. The second-year tight end has now topped 65 yards in four consecutive games after just one such performance in his first six games of the season. Look for that kind of production to continue, especially if Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) misses the finale against a Cowboys team that surrendered seven catches to Engram in Week 2.
Engram corralled eight of 12 targets, putting up 75 receiving yards during Sunday's 17-0 loss to Tennessee.
Fresh off a hamstring injury that sidelined him for Weeks 12 and 13, Engram has been heavily involved over the past two games, garnering 17 combined targets against the Redskins and Titans. (He saw 4.7 targets per game through Week 11.) The promising second-year tight end is amidst a late-season resurgence that closely resembles his 2017 self, exceeding 70 receiving yards in back-to-back games after failing to hit that mark through his first seven outings of the year. An upcoming Week 16 showdown against Indianapolis doesn't provide optimism for Engram to snap his four-game scoring drought, however, as he'll face a Colts defense that's allowed only three tight end touchdowns all season (tied for third fewest in the NFL).
Engram (hamstring) caught three of five targets for a team-high 77 receiving yards in Sunday's 40-16 win over Washington.
Just over half of Engram's yardage came on a 39-yard catch. The Giants raced out to a 40-0 lead against a Mark Sanchez-led Redskins team, so New York's passing game wasn't overly stressed without Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps). Engram has dealt with injury issues of his own, but his health seems to be trending up ahead of a Week 15 meeting with the Titans.
Engram is slated to return from a two-game absence due to a hamstring injury Sunday against the Redskins but is expected to see his role limited primarily to passing downs, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
The Giants seem comfortable with where Engram is at on the health front and aren't expected to restrict his playing time because of it, but the 24-year-old had already been losing work to backup Rhett Ellison even before getting hurt. In the Giants' two games following their Week 9 bye, Engram took the field for just 47 percent of the team's offensive snaps after averaging around 90 percent through the five contests he had previously played. Though most of the plays Engram was sidelined for were designed runs, the overall decline in snap share nonetheless presented fewer opportunities for him to put up numbers. Should the trend hold the rest of the way, Engram's weekly upside would be capped to some extent, though he should at least rank higher in the Giants' pass-catching hierarchy this Sunday with top wideout Odell Beckham (quadriceps) ruled out.
Engram (hamstring) practiced fully Thursday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Prior to Wednesday's limited showing, Engram was held off the field for two contests and every practice since injuring his hamstring during pregame warmups Nov. 25 at Philadelphia. Now with an uninhibited practice under his belt, he's slated to retake his role as the Giants' starting tight end. In his previous matchup with Sunday's opponent (the Redskins) in Week 8, Engram turned nine targets into five receptions for 25 yards and one touchdown.
Engram (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Engram hadn't taken the practice field since injuring his hamstring during pregame warmups Nov. 25 in Philadelphia, missing the Giants' overtime win against the Bears in Week 13 as a result. With a return to drills, the second-year tight end is trending in a positive direction, but it remains to be seen if it'll be enough to play Sunday in Washington. His listing on upcoming injury reports will be worth monitoring as the weekend approaches.
Engram (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Despite his optimism about his health earlier in the week, Engram failed to log any level of practice participation Wednesday through Friday, suggesting he could miss additional games beyond Sunday's. His absence for at least Week 13 frees up a three-down role for Rhett Ellison, who caught four of six targets for 77 yards while handling an 89 percent snap share on offense in last week's 25-22 loss to the Eagles. The 30-year-old essentially has filled in for Engram four times this season (Weeks 3 through 5 and Week 12), averaging 54.3 snaps, 4.3 targets and 40.5 yards in those games.
Engram (hamstring) was spotted working out on the side at the start of Friday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Though Engram was in attendance for the Giants' final practice session of the week, he rode a stationary bike while the rest of his teammates warmed up on the field, suggesting he's on track to go down as a non-participant for the third straight day. That doesn't bode well for his odds of playing Sunday against the Bears, but the Giants should provide official word on the matter later Friday. Rhett Ellison would work as the Giants' top tight end in the event Engram is sidelined for his fourth game of the season.
Coach Pat Shurmur said Engram (hamstring) will not participate in Thursday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
This is not a good sign for Engram's status heading into the weekend, as there has also been nothing to suggest that the tight end will even be able to put in a limited effort Friday. When Engram was sidelined in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, Rhett Ellison operated as the team's No. 1 tight end, hauling in four passes for 77 yards.
Engram (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com reports.
Aside from riding a stationary bike off to the side, Engram was a non-participant in the first session of Week 13. The lack of activity followed no offensive snaps in Sunday's 25-22 loss to Philadelphia, which came after Engram injured his hamstring in pregame warmups. Engram will have two more opportunities to prove his health during practices in advance of this weekend's tilt with the Bears.
Engram (hamstring) rode a stationary bike during Wednesday's practice, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
There was some optimism about the tight end's practice availability when he was spotted at the morning walk-through, but it now sounds like he'll be listed as a non-participant on the first injury report of the week. Withheld from Sunday's 25-22 loss to the Eagles after hurting his hamstring during pregame warmups, Engram was optimistic Monday about his chances of avoiding another absence Week 13 against the Bears. He'll have two more chances to practice before the weekend arrives.
Engram (hamstring) said he's optimistic about his recovery timetable based on how he performed during a workout Monday under the supervision of the Giants' training staff.
Engram confirmed that his injury first cropped up during pregame warmups Sunday, rendering him unable to play in a 25-22 loss to the Eagles even though he wasn't included on the inactive list. Rhett Ellison filled in with four catches for 77 yards on six targets, playing 55 of 62 offensive snaps (89 percent) Engram seemingly believes he has a shot to return for the Week 13 game against the Bears, with Wednesday representing his first chance to practice.
Engram didn't play in Sunday's 25-22 loss at Philadelphia due to a hamstring injury, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Per Stapleton, Engram hurt the hamstring in pregame warmups. In Engram's place, Rhett Ellison held down the fort at tight end, hauling in four of six passes for 77 yards. Engram's status will be worth monitoring in advance of next Sunday's game against the Bears.
Engram brought in both of his targets for 66 yards in the Giants' 38-35 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Engram's day would have been classified as a disappointment had he not ripped off a 54-yard catch-and-run in the fourth quarter. The athletic tight end's target share was unexpectedly low, but considering the Giants only put the ball up 18 times, this wasn't exactly surprising. Engram is still looking for his first 100-yard game of the season, and he'll look to accomplish it in a Week 12 divisional battle against the Eagles.
Engram caught four of five targets for 46 yards against the Niners on Monday night, three of them on the game-winning drive.
Engram was virtually ignored for most of the game, but Eli Manning went to him with the game on the line. He's at best third fiddle behind Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham, though Sterling Shepard also will command some looks.
Engram caught five of nine targets for 25 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Redskins.
Engram finished behind only Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley in targets as he finished with his second-highest catch total of the season. He recorded a long gain of just nine yards, but a two-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter helped him to a somewhat useful fantasy contribution. Engram was rather quiet last week in his return from an injury absence, but he was much more involved this time around and appears to be regaining fantasy utility for a Giants team that should be forced to throw often the rest of the way. He'll now enjoy a bye before taking on the 49ers in Week 10.
Engram corralled two of four targets for 16 yards and gained 10 yards on his lone carry Monday in the Giants' 23-20 loss to the Falcons.
Making his return from a three-game absence due to an MCL sprain of his right knee, Engram started at tight end and played 52 of the Giants' 64 offensive snaps (81 percent). Despite the hefty workload, Engram wasn't much of a priority in the passing game, with all of Odell Beckham (11 targets), Saquon Barkley (10) and Sterling Shepard (eight) drawing more looks from quarterback Eli Manning. Atlanta's leaky secondary likely had a lot to do with Beckham and Shepard doubling him up in targets, but Engram should carve out more volume in the passing game as he becomes further removed from the knee injury. The fact that Engram saw a significant amount of snaps and didn't experience any reported setbacks should give fantasy owners the confidence to keep him in their lineups for his Week 8 matchup with the Redskins.
