Giants’ Daniel Jones, Evan Engram not expected to...


When New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning took the podium following a Monday Night Football loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, he sounded like a man who recognized that he may have made his final start in blue.

But fate is an odd thing and despite head coach Pat Shurmur doing his best to rush rookie Daniel Jones back, it appears as if Manning will get one last start — at home in front of his East Rutherford fans.

Jones, who is recovering from a high ankle sprain suffered against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13, has been a (very) limited participant in practice this week and has not taken a single first team snap.

On Thursday, Jones did take another positive step forward however, staying after practice to get some extra work with some teammates who also stayed behind. He was moving well and looked close to a return, but the window of time he has ahead of Sunday’s game against Miami is about to close.

Meanwhile, the news was equally as bad for tight end Evan Engram, who has also been a limited participant in practice this. But like Jones, he is not expected to play.

The Giants will be back at practice on Friday morning with their official Week 15 injury report coming out later in the day.
