New York Giants tight end Evan Engram, who missed the team’s last matchup with a mid-foot sprain, is out of the walking boot.

The New York Giants have a slew of injuries ahead of their Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears, many they’re making progress with.

Tight end Evan Engram, sidelined during the Week 10 loss to the New York Jets with a mid-foot sprain, has ditched the walking boot. It’s unclear if Engram will be at full health and good to go for their upcoming matchup. He didn’t practice on Monday.

The Giants also have numerous players in the concussion protocol. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins, tight end Rhett Ellison and wideout Sterling Shepard are all dealing with that type of setback. The latter is reportedly in the final stage of the protocol.

However, don’t get your hopes up too high. The last time this occurred, Shepard was cleared and then, once again, experienced symptoms.

Shepard has missed six games this year. He’s been in-and-out of the protocol numerous times. In the four games he’s played in, Shepard’s caught 25 balls for 267 yards and one touchdown. In his absence, the Giants have fielded the likes of Golden Tate, rookie Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer.

Right tackle Mike Remmers missed the game against the Jets due to a back injury but has a chance to return this coming Sunday. The same can be said for Jon Halapio, who missed this last matchup with a hamstring setback. Both have returned to practice.

The Giants are 2-8 heading into their Week 12 matchup with the 4-6 Chicago Bears. Kick-off will be at Soldier Field at 1:00 p.m. ET.
