It’s not possible to inform who’s extra adversely affected by Evan Engram’s newest harm: The Giants or Engram?
Let’s simply say neither facet can afford a prolonged absence.
Engram noticed a physician Monday to find out the severity of his calf harm and his standing for the Sept. 12 season-opener is firmly unsure. He already is making an attempt to win again a fan base worn skinny on endurance due to his dropped passes and lengthy harm historical past. Plus, he’s enjoying to earn an enormous contract in pending free company.
“It leaves just a little little bit of a special window than it usually can be within the preseason monitor so far as preparing for the opener,” coach Joe Choose stated, “so we’ll need to see the place he’s at by way of how we handle him.”
Calf accidents usually require greater than a two-week restoration, so, the Giants — who’ve practiced for 80 % of the summer season with out operating again Saquon Barkley, tight finish Kyle Rudolph, and receivers Kenny Golladay and John Ross — are bracing to be with out their lone Professional Bowler on offense final season.
Engram couldn’t cover his concern within the instant aftermath of the harm Sunday as he put his hand to his lowered brow and wiped his eyes.
However the Giants might need caught a break on receiver Darius Slayton (ankle/foot).
“We must always be capable of get him on the sector this week,” Choose stated, “and have the ability to try him.”
