The Giants picked up Engram's (foot) fifth-year option for 2021 on Wednesday.
Though the 25-year-old missed eight games last season and underwent surgery to address the Lisfranc injury to his left foot in December, it's not a surprise that the Giants elected to pick up his option for 2021. Engram finished the season with 44 catches for 467 yards and three touchdowns prior to being shut down, and if health prevails, he should be back as one of Daniel Jones' top targets in 2020. Engram was seen running on a treadmill Wednesday as he continues his recovery from the procedure.

It's unclear whether Engram is still using his walking boot when he's not working out, but his activity is nonetheless a positive progression in his rehab from a late-December Lisfranc surgery. The speedy tight end is still awaiting for word whether his fifth-year option will be picked up, though the 2017 first-round pick is generally expected to be retained through 2021 thanks to his strong production when he's been healthy enough to play.

Engram had surgery Dec. 20 to address a Lisfranc injury in his left foot, and while he said the ligament wasn't completely torn, he nonetheless faces a lengthy rehab process. The 23rd overall pick from the 2017 draft has averaged 4.5 catches for 51.9 yards and 0.35 touchdowns per game through three seasons, playing in 34 of a possible 48 contests. The Giants have a couple months before they need to decide on a fifth-year option, but it should be an easy enough decision to do so at the expected price of approximately $6 million. Fellow Giants tight end Rhett Ellison (concussion) reportedly is considering retirement, while Kaden Smith could be in the mix for the No. 2 job after he caught 30 of 42 targets for 267 yards and three TDs over the final six weeks of 2019. With a new coaching staff in place, the Giants can start their offseason program as soon as April 6.
Engram (foot) said Monday that he expects to make a full recovery from the surgery he required earlier this month and return to full activity for the start of the Giants' offseason program this spring, Bob Glauber of Newsday reports.
Engram confirmed that his left foot surgery entailed repairing the Lisfranc ligament, though the tight end indicated he wasn't dealing with a "full-blown tear." While that bodes well for Engram's chances of bouncing back from the procedure, he'll likely need to showcase better health in 2020 in order to make a serious case for a lucrative contract extension. Engram has missed 13 games due to lower-body injuries the past two seasons and isn't a surefire bet to have his fifth-year option exercised this spring.
Engram will undergo surgery Friday to repair the Lisfranc injury in his left foot, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Engram finished his third pro season with 44 catches (on 68 targets) for 467 yards and three touchdowns. Considering the extent of his foot issue wasn't divulged until Wednesday, it's no surprise he was unable to get back on the field after initially suffering the injury Week 9 against the Cowboys. Engram told Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site that he expects to be "more than ready" by training camp, but his activity in the offseason program could still be impacted.

Though he appeared close to returning to game action on a couple occasions, Engram was never able to move past the left foot injury after he first sprained it in a Nov. 4 loss to the Cowboys. Engram will end up having played in only eight games, finishing his third NFL season with 44 catches for 467 yards and three touchdowns on 68 targets. Engram's absence for the Giants' final two games should allow rookie Kaden Smith to act as the Giants' top pass-catching tight end, while blocking specialist Rhett Ellison could also have a more pronounced role if he's able to clear the NFL's concussion protocol.

Engram was seemingly on track to return to action for the second straight week, but as was the case in Week 14, he was ultimately ruled out for another game after further evaluation. With only two games to go after Sunday, the Giants may consider shutting Engram down for the season, though a decision on that front has yet to be made. Fellow tight end Rhett Ellison (concussion) will also be inactive against Miami, so rookie Kaden Smith should once again work as the team's top option at the position.
Engram (foot) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Dolphins, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
The 2017 first-round pick has worked as a limited practice participant this week and hasn't appeared to suffer a setback, but he apparently hasn't progressed enough from the left foot sprain to make returning from the four-game absence worth the risk. Engram's availability will receive further clarity when the Giants release their final injury report later Friday, but at this point, his status is trending in the wrong direction.

Engram (foot) was limited at practice Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Back-to-back limited sessions are encouraging with regard to the tight end's Week 15 status, but Engram would likely have to practice fully Friday in order to approach Sunday's game against the Dolphins minus an injury designation.
Engram (foot) will attempt to practice Thursday according to coach Pat Shurmur, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Engram logged a limited session Wednesday, but presumably needs to log a full workload at least one day if he intends to gain clearance to suit up for the first time since Week 9. It appears he's on the right track, but stay tuned for the official practice report.
Engram (foot) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Engram was listed as limited last week before being ruled out for a fourth consecutive game, the result of a mid-foot sprain. Consequently, he may have to elevate to full participation by week's end in order to gain clearance from the Giants' training staff.

The Giants will release their first Week 15 practice report later Wednesday, which will reveal whether Engram was a limited or full participant in the session. Considering Engram has been sidelined for the past five weeks with the left foot injury, he'll likely need to put in a full workout by Friday to have a good chance of suiting up Sunday against the Dolphins.
Engram (foot), who has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Eagles, expressed uncertainty about his ability to play again in 2019, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. "I'm going to try my best [to return] in the final three weeks [of the season]," Engram said.
After Engram opened this week as a limited participant in practice, initial reports suggested the tight end was on track to put an end to his three-game absence, but his condition apparently took a turn for the worse Saturday. Engram was a spectator for the Giants' final practice of Week 14, ensuring he would be sidelined for yet another game. While Engram indicated that he didn't experience a setback, it's clear the foot injury isn't allowing him to move around at full speed just yet. With little on the line at this point in the season for the 2-10 Giants, Engram may not be pushed to play unless both he and the organization are confident that he's 100 percent healthy.

The outcome is a disappointing one for Engram, as coach Pat Shurmur had previously expressed optimism that the tight end would be ready to return from a four-week absence to play Monday night. With Engram's strained left foot still troubling him, however, rookie Kaden Smith should be in line to act as the Giants' top pass-catching tight end for another week. Engram's top backup, Rhett Ellison (concussion), has also been ruled out for Week 14.

This is certainly a troubling development after head coach Pat Shurmur suggested the tight end appeared poised to make his return from a Week 9 foot injury, although the Giants have not officially listed Engram's game-time status for Monday's contest. Fantasy owners should check in prior to the team's official injury report, which should come later Saturday afternoon.
Engram (foot) logged another limited practice Friday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Coach Pat Shurmur expects the tight end to return for Monday's game in Philadelphia, where Engram will likely work with quarterback Eli Manning for the first time since Week 2. The Giants also expect to have Golden Tate (concussion) back in the lineup, while rookie signal-caller Daniel Jones (ankle) isn't likely to play.
Coach Pat Shurmur said Friday that "all indications are [Engram] will be ready to go" for Monday's game against the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Engram hasn't played since injuring his foot in Week 9, but he was able to practice Thursday for the first time since suffering the injury, likely setting him up for a return to action in Philadelphia. The Giants will still practice twice more before revealing their final injury report for Week 14 on Saturday. While it's looking like Engram will be back this week, fantasy players may not have confirmation on his availability for certain until shortly before Monday's kickoff.
Engram (foot) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Engram has missed the Giants' last three games with a strained left foot, but he expressed optimism earlier this week that he would put an end to his streak of absences Monday in Philadelphia. The tight end's ability to take some practice reps in the Giants' first session of Week 14 offers early encouragement that he'll be able to achieve his goal, though he may need to put in a full workout Friday or Saturday for the Giants to sign off on him playing. If Engram suits up Monday, he'll be catching passes from Eli Manning, who is slated to start for the first time since Week 2 with rookie signal-caller Daniel Jones (ankle) considered highly unlikely to play.
Engram (foot) said that he expects to be available for Monday's game against the Eagles, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Engram was present for the Giants' practice Wednesday, though his level of involvement won't be known until the team releases its first Week 14 injury report Thursday. If Engram's prediction comes to pass and he suits up versus the Eagles, he'll likely be catching passes from Eli Manning, as Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports that rookie starting quarterback Daniel Jones will likely be sidelined with a high-ankle sprain.
