Evan Engram injury status update, 1:16 p.m.
The Giants tight end will NOT play in Week 10, per Ralph Vacchiano. Engram is dealing with a mid-foot sprain and is wearing a boot, but the tight end said it was not a lengthier Lisfranc injury. Engram did tell media though that he will not play on Sunday against the Jets. Rhett Ellison will start at tight end.
The New York Giants are back at practice on Wednesday for Week 10, and tight end Evan Engram is not taking part, according to beat writer Jordan Raanan. Engram injured his foot on Monday against the Dallas Cowboys, and it could be a problem on a short week. He underwent an MRI and is getting a second opinion on the injury, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Head coach Pat Shurmur said he had a “little bit of a sore foot” on Tuesday, so the team is getting it squared away.
Fantasy football analysis: Giants TEs Evan Engram, Rhett Ellison
If Engram cannot go, Rhett Ellison would get the start in his place. Ellison did not overwhelm during Engram’s absence with a knee injury, but did find the end zone once and was a regular target in the team’s Week 5 loss to New England. He’s not a great waiver wire addition, but with six teams on bye in Week 10, you could do worse if Engram is sidelined.
