The New York Giants got some good news on Wednesday as tight end Evan Engram has cleared the concussion protocol and will be available for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Engram suffered his concussion in the third preseason game when he caught a pass over the middle and was sandwiched by two New York Jets defenders.

Head coach Pat Shurmur also said that defensive end Olivier Vernon is “making great progress” as he tries to return from an ankle injury suffered in practice more than a week ago.

“From what I’ve seen he looks to be a fast healer,” Shurmur said. “He’s working his way back.”

Shurmur indicated that Vernon would probably not practice on Wednesday and did not directly address his status for Sunday, but the report seemed to be an optimistic one.
