Giants need Evan Engram for week 17
One knock on New York Giants’ tight end Evan Engram has been the fact that he’s been unable to play an entire 16 game season so far in his career due to injuries.
The good news is that Engram is one game away from playing an entire season. But the bad news is that he is now dealing with an injury that forced him to missed the end of this past Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
Giants’ head coach Joe Judge is optimistic that Engram will be able to play against the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday.
“He’s already seen our training staff and met with the doctors after the game. That’s all kind of standard procedure,” Judge said. “Look, we’re optimistic about where he’s going to be. That being said, this will definitely be a deal where we have to see how he moves around on Wednesday in practice. From the feedback we got from the doctors, for them, it’s a lot of wait and see and watch to see how he responds. But we are optimistic.”
If the Giants are able to come away with a win against the Cowboys at MetLife Stadium this week, they will need the Washington Football Team to lose to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football in order to clinch the NFC East and book their spot in the playoffs. Having Engram available will make the first part a lot easier for the Giants.
