New York Giants tight end Evan Engram likes what he’s done thus far in 2019 despite missing multiple games due to injury.
Evan Engram is currently looking to rebound from a mid-foot sprain that kept him out of the loss to the New York Jets. It was the second missed game he experienced this year. An MCL sprain also sidelined the veteran New York Giants tight end for their loss to the New England Patriots in Week 6.
Despite the injury woes, Engram has liked what he’s been able to bring to the table this season. He’s the team’s leading receiver and has emerged as one of the more versatile tight ends this league has to offer.
“Personally, I feel like I did some good things,” Engram said of this campaign, per Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. “I think the biggest thing is staying sharp on my routes and trying to stay on blocks is something I’m going to try to continue to improve on that I got to reflect on.”
Through eight games this year, Engram has caught 44 balls for 467 yards and three touchdowns.
This week, Engram officially ditched the walking boot he was in. He’s making progress, but it’s still unclear if he’ll be able to play this coming Sunday. Big Blue will definitely need him if they want to find themselves back on track. At the moment, they’ve fallen into a deep hole headlined by a 2-8 record.
The Giants and Chicago Bears will kick off at Soldier Field this Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. ET.
