Report: Evan Engram Dealing with Sprained MCL

Patricia Traina

According to an ESPN report, Giants tight end Evan Engram's knee injury is believed to be a sprained MCL that could keep him out of Thursday's game against the New England Patriots.

Engram, who is in his third NFL season, has yet to make it through a full 16-game slate. He is currently the Giants' leading receiver with 33 receptions for 373 yards and two touchdowns. 

If Engram, who took part in limited drills on Tuesday, can't play, Rhett Ellison and Garrett Dickerson will likely be the Giants' main two tight ends against the Patriots.
