This is supposed to be a pivotal season for New York Giants tight end Evan Engram, but now the fifth-year veteran has to hope he’s not going to be out for a while.
Engram left the first half of tonight’s preseason finale against the New England Patriots after coming up lame while attempting to throw a block. Engram immediately looked to be hurt.
The former Ole Miss star limped to the sideline and was seen with his head down on the bench. He then headed inside with a trainer.
Engram has already been ruled out with a calf injury.

Prior to exiting the game, Engram caught three short passes for 22 yards. The 2017 first-round pick has been plagued by injuries, drops and inconsistent play in his first four seasons.
By all accounts, even with his struggles, Engram is a diligent worker who has put in plenty of effort. It would be a major bummer if he is sidelined for a while.
We will update you with any more information as it comes out.
