The New York Giants are back to work after their bye week, preparing for a Week 12 trip to the Windy City to face the Chicago Bears. The Giants don’t have to release an injury report until Wednesday, but reports coming from practice on Monday indicated some encouraging news for several injured Giants players.
Tight end Evan Engram, who missed the game against the New York Jets with a mid-foot sprain, is making progress. Engram was able to remove the walking boot he had been wearing on Monday, said he had a two- to four-week diagnosis and that he hopes to be practicing by the end of the week. He said playing Sunday against the Bears is “definitely possible.”
Right tackle Mike Remmers (back) returned to practice. Head coach Pat Shurmur indicated that Remmers would return to the starting lineup if he is able to play.
“I think if everyone’s healthy, they go back to their spots,” Shurmur said.
Nate Solder (concussion) was reportedly excused from practice for personal reasons. Sterling Shepard also remained in the concussion protocol. Janoris Jenkins is also still in the protocol.
Shurmur expressed optimism those players would be cleared this week.
