NY Giants desperately need these injury prone players to stay healthy
TE – Evan Engram
Evan Engram, even after making his first Pro Bowl last season, remains a bit of an enigma for the NY Giants.
There’s little doubting that when at his peak, Engram is a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. However, he dropped eight passes last season and the NY Giants resorted to handing him the ball on several occasions on jet-sweeps and end-arounds, just to get the ball in his hands.
Moreover, Engram has a lengthy injury history.
Engram has missed time due to foot, and knee injuries as well as concussions throughout his NFL career.
Last season was his first that he was able to play a full 16-game slate.
If Engram can repeat that feat and reduce his drops, the collection of talent in the NY Giants’ offense could facilitate this being his most prolific season to date. But, with veteran Kyle Rudolph now looming, an injury or dip in production could cause a significant dip in Engram’s role.
