Rookie tight end Evan Engram is in the NFL concussion protocol, per the injury report released on Wednesday by the New York Giants. Engram was listed on the injury report as a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice.
Engram, the Giants’ first-round pick, has eight receptions for 93 yards (11.6 yards per catch) and one touchdown (which we reviewed here).
NJ.com reported that Engram’s being in the protocol is “precautionary.” Coach Ben McAdoo shed no light Engram, saying only that “he’s in the protocol.”
