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.
