The NY Giants revealed the final injury report Friday, ahead of Sunday’s NFL Week 1 game against the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium
Two of the NY Giants most important offensive weapons appear to be trending towards getting on the field for the first time on Sunday afternoon in the season-opener against the Denver Broncos.
NY Giants running back Saquon Barkley was listed as questionable, and wide receiver Kenny Golladay doesn’t have an injury designation ahead of Sunday’s game.
Here is the NY Giants injury report for Sunday’s game against the Broncos:
Barkley is aiming to return from a torn ACL, suffered last season in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears, and hasn’t taken the field in game action since.
Friday, Barkley told reporters that he didn’t suffer any setbacks during practice, but added “we’ll see,” about playing Sunday.
Engram will miss Sunday’s game, after suffering a calf injury in the preseason finale against the New England Patriots, and having been unable to practice since. The Pro Bowl tight end has only been able to do side work with the trainers, since suffering his injury.
Without Engram, the Giants will likely turn to veteran free agent addition Kyle Rudolph to play a substantial role on Sunday afternoon against the Broncos.
Golladay missed the entire preseason, after suffering a hamstring injury during the first padded practice of training camp.
The NY Giants and Broncos kick off the 2021 NFL season on Sunday afternoon at 4:25 p.m. at MetLife Stadium.
