Eli Manning will play Sunday for the New York Giants in their season finale. He will, however, have none of his “A” list targets to throw to.

Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall have been out since Week 5. His two best remaining receivers, tight end Evan Engram (ribs) and wide receiver Sterling Shepard (neck) have been ruled out for Sunday.

“He [Engram] really wanted to (play) and when I say that, his mind wanted to, but his body is not going to let him right now,” interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo said.

Shane Vereen (44 catches), Roger Lewis (36) and Wayne Gallman (34) will be the team’s leading receivers on Sunday.

Wide receiver Tavarres King (concussion) will also miss Sunday’s season finale.

Starting offensive tackles Ereck Flowers (groin) and Bobby Hart (ankle) are both listed as questionable.
