Engram caught four of five targets for 46 yards against the Niners Monday night, three of them on the game-winning drive.

EDGE Analysis

Engram was virtually ignored for most of the game, but Eli Manning went to him with the game on the line. He's at best third fiddle behind Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham, though Sterling Shepard also will command some looks.

Engram caught five of nine targets for 25 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Engram finished behind only Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley in targets as he finished with his second-highest catch total of the season. He recorded a long gain of just nine yards, but a two-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter helped him to a somewhat useful fantasy contribution. Engram was rather quiet last week in his return from an injury absence, but he was much more involved this time around and appears to be regaining fantasy utility for a Giants team that should be forced to throw often the rest of the way. He'll now enjoy a bye before taking on the 49ers in Week 10.

Engram corralled two of four targets for 16 yards and gained 10 yards on his lone carry Monday in the Giants' 23-20 loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Making his return from a three-game absence due to an MCL sprain of his right knee, Engram started at tight end and played 52 of the Giants' 64 offensive snaps (81 percent). Despite the hefty workload, Engram wasn't much of a priority in the passing game, with all of Odell Beckham (11 targets), Saquon Barkley (10) and Sterling Shepard (eight) drawing more looks from quarterback Eli Manning. Atlanta's leaky secondary likely had a lot to do with Beckham and Shepard doubling him up in targets, but Engram should carve out more volume in the passing game as he becomes further removed from the knee injury. The fact that Engram saw a significant amount of snaps and didn't experience any reported setbacks should give fantasy owners the confidence to keep him in their lineups for his Week 8 matchup with the Redskins.

Engram (knee) logged another full practice Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Engram has now made it through back-to-back full practices without incident, setting him up for a return Monday night in Atlanta. He'll take aim at a soft Falcons defense that surrendered touchdowns to both O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate during last week's win over the Buccaneers.

Engram (knee) practiced fully Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Engram has been optimistic all week regarding his potential to return Monday in Atlanta, per Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York. After opening preparations for this contest with an uncapped session, Engram appears to be past the MCL sprain in his right knee just in time to face the Falcons' 31st-ranked scoring defense (32.0 points per game).

Engram (knee) is taking part in Thursday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

After playing on Thursday night against the Eagles last week, the Giants reconvened two days ago to begin preparing for their Week 7 Monday night showdown with the Falcons. Engram was spotted on the field for that workout, but Thursday's session will mark the team's first official practice of the week. The Giants will reveal if Engram was a limited or full participant shortly after practice concludes, but the extra days between games should boost the tight end's odds of returning from a three-game absence due to the MCL sprain. Engram had practiced on a limited basis last week, but the quicker turnaround between games likely influenced the Giants' decision to hold him out of another game.

Engram (knee) said after Tuesday's practice that he "felt good" and hopes to return Monday in Atlanta, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sidelined since Week 3 due to a sprained MCL in his right knee, Engram made attempts to ramp up his workload last week but ultimately didn't have enough time to prove his health for a Thursday night matchup with the Eagles. With an appearance on Monday Night Football upcoming, the Giants aren't required to release an injury report until Thursday. At that point, coach Pat Shurmur will have a better gauge on Engram's odds to return.

Engram (knee) was seen participating in Tuesday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear whether Engram was a full participant or not, but the fact that he is on the practice field this early in the week with the Giants not playing until Monday night is a very encouraging sign. The extended week of rest seems to have been just what Engram needed, and while a more official update on Engram's status will come once the team releases its practice report, it would be fairly surprising at this point to not see the tight end back on the field come Monday.

Engram (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Eagles, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Engram tested out his right knee during practice Tuesday, which apparently didn't go as planned. As evidence, he was a limited participant in that session -- after coach Pat Shurmur said the tight end would work "full speed" -- and didn't practice at all Wednesday. Beyond Thursday, the Giants don't play again until Monday, Oct. 22 in Atlanta, so Engram will be afforded plenty of time to recover from an MCL sprain. In the meantime, fellow TE Rhett Ellison (foot) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game. If Ellison is hindered or ruled out as well, it would set the stage for Scott Simonson and potentially Garrett Dickerson to see the field.

Engram (knee) was listed as a limited participant at Tuesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Though coach Pat Shumur suggested Engram would take part in practice at "full speed," the tight end was instead relegated to individual drills during the portion of Tuesday's session that was available to the media, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Given his limited listing, it appears Engram didn't increase his workload much behind closed doors. Despite the lack of full participation, the Giants are seemingly optimistic that Engram will be ready to play Thursday against the Eagles, though he could still carry a questionable tag into that contest.
