Giants coach Joe Judge decided to start several key players in today’s preseason finale, and that decision may come back to haunt him.

Evan Engram, the Giants’ first-string tight end, limped off the field and was quickly ruled out with what the team is calling a calf injury.

There’s no word on the severity of the injury, but injuries were already a concern at tight end because Kyle Rudolph has missed the entire preseason after foot surgery.

Last year Engram was Daniel Jones‘ favorite receiver; Engram was targeted on 109 passes, the most of any player on the Giants. It would be a major concern for the Giants if Engram has to miss significant time in the regular season.

  1. In a 17 week war of attrition, the giants have positioned themselves as a leader of teams that will be out of it by week 8. Not to mention Danny dimes, the human turnover machine.

  2. The guy has had a total of 7 TDs in the last three seasons, and only one last year. How concerned could the Giants possibly be?

  3. Not on topic but Giants inquired about Mariota. Mariota said to not be interested in leaving Vegas.

  4. Gettleman is responsible for the giants fall from relevance. It was obvious when with a bare cupboard he took a RB with a high first round pick. these days you make that choice when your team is loaded and you feel that may be the final piece to win championships. the modern pro game has passed him by. the giants use to be a marquee franchise.

  5. I think TE has the most “this guy is unbelievable if he stays healthy “ if they can’t they don’t. This guys gonna be one of them unfortunately.

  6. Evan Engram is a tremendous athlete but has zero football instincts and can’t stay healthy. Giants have Kyle Rudolph and Kaeden Smith. Hope its not a long term injury.
