  Giants | Thursday's practice report for NY Giants    Thu Dec 12, 02:52 PM

New York Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle) and OG Kevin Zeitler (ankle, wrist) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 12. TE Rhett Ellison (concussion), TE Evan Engram (foot) and QB Daniel Jones (ankle) were limited. WR Golden Tate (foot) and CB Corey Ballentine (concussion) practiced in full.

Footballguys view: Engram could return this week but he has been out for too long to trust as we normally would in his first week back despite a good matchup against Miami.

  Giants | Daniel Jones does some work    Wed Dec 11, 01:51 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) is limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: He's not out of it yet. Reports on Tuesday indicated that Jones would need to miss 2-4 weeks with this injury. Reports on Wednesday suggest the Giants may try to rush him back. Eli Manning did a decent job against the Eagles, so we don't see the rush with the rookie. Whatever the case may be, monitor his status during the week of practice.

  Giants | Golden Tate limited Wednesday    Wed Dec 11, 01:10 PM

New York Giants TE Golden Tate (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: The Giants have a great opportunity to put up points against the Dolphins on Sunday. That makes Tate at least a flex play in PPR leagues, no matter if the quarterback for the Giants is Daniel Jones or Eli Manning.

  Giants | Evan Engram limited    Wed Dec 11, 01:09 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Engram has been trying to get back from this foot injury but to no avail. He hasn't been out there since Week 9, so Fantasy GMs already have other and better options even if Engram does return in Week 15.

  Giants | Chance for Daniel Jones to start?    Tue Dec 10, 09:41 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) hasn't yet been ruled out by head coach Pat Shurmur for the game Sunday, Dec. 15, against the Miami Dolphins. Shurmur said Tuesday, Dec. 10, the reported 2-4 week timetable for Jones' return is 'not accurate,' and when the rookie is able to start, he will.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on his status as the week of practice goes on. There have been speculative reports that the Giants would try to get him back out there ASAP. Eli Manning didn't perform poorly on Monday night against the Eagles, so rushing Jones back doesn't make a lot of sense. Stay tuned.

  Giants | Daniel Jones out 2-4 weeks    Mon Dec 9, 08:31 AM

Updating previous reports, New York Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) is expected to miss two to four weeks with a high ankle sprain, according to sources.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. High-ankle sprains are known to linger if not given enough time to heal. Eli Manning will start while Jones is out. There's a chance the rookie quarterback misses the rest of the regular season.

  Giants | Evan Engram may not return in 2019    Sat Dec 7, 06:44 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) said he is not sure if he will be able to play again this season but will try his best to play in one of the last three games.

Footballguys view: It looked like Engram might be back in Week 14 but he's going to miss the Monday night game against the Eagles. With only a few games remaining, the Giants may choose to shut him down and get their star tight end ready for the 2020 season. Kaden Smith continues to get a featured role with Engram (and Rhett Ellison) down with injury.

  Giants | Eli Manning returning as starter    Sat Dec 7, 12:47 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will get the start in Week 14 on Monday, Dec. 9, against the the Philadelphia Eagles with QB Daniel Jones ruled out with an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: We are interested to see Manning back out there for the Giants...although Giants fans may not be as excited. It could be a train wreck for the Giants offense against the Eagles on Monday night. Manning hasn't played since Week 2 and he wasn't good to start the season. We just want to see if there's any sort of spark from Manning upon his return.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) on Saturday, Dec. 7, was ruled out of the team's Week 14 game Monday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: We were hoping that Engram would get back out there this week but that's not the case. Engram and Rhett Ellison are out, so that means Kaden Smith should be the lead tight end for the Giants on Monday night.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) was spotted using an exercise bike at practice Saturday, Dec. 7, but he went inside the team's facility when they began doing stretching exercises.

Footballguys view: Engram is likely to miss another week with this injury. Fantasy GMs weren't going to wait around until Monday night anyway, so you likely have another plan in place.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 6.

Footballguys view: Engram should be back Monday night against the Eagles. With Eli Manning at quarterback, things could be interesting for the Giants offense. We love Engram's talent but it will be difficult to trust him this first week back. He's a low-end TE1 for Fantasy GMs in Week 14.

  Giants | Eli Manning expected to start on MNF    Thu Dec 5, 02:48 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is 'very likely' to start against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, Dec. 9, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Manning's return makes the Monday night game a little more interesting. Sure, he's not the player he used to be but the Giants may want to 'win one for Eli' and turn in a spirited performance (or it could be a dumpster fire). Checking down to Saquon Barkley is going to be a thing again, so adjust all expectations for the Giants offense accordingly.

  Giants | Golden Tate likely back    Wed Dec 4, 12:45 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) is likely to return in Week 14.

Footballguys view: We'll watch Tate's practice status during the week. He's a WR2 or flex option in PPR leagues in Week 14. Tate will be a 'relief valve' receiver for Eli Manning (Daniel Jones is in a walking boot) on Monday night against the Eagles.

  Giants | Evan Engram has positive outlook    Wed Dec 4, 12:37 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) has a strong chance to return in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Giants offense here. Engram's practice status will have to be monitored this week and make sure to check your waiver wire to see if someone dumped him when he was injured. The Giants play the Eagles on Monday night, so Fantasy GMs likely have better options at the tight ends position in Week 14.
