Quarterback Daniel Jones is out of the walking boot, but still did not practice for the New York Giants on Friday. Coach Pat Shurmur told media that it was “very unlikely” Jones will be able to play, which further ensures that Eli Manning will be at quarterback Monday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
It also looks like Manning could have a full complement of offensive weapons to work with, making Monday the first time this season all of the Giants’ offensive play-makers could be on the field together.
Engram, who has missed three games with a foot injury, was listed as a limited practice participant. There is optimism he will be ready Monday night.
Tate practiced fully and has now been cleared from the concussion protocol. After a rest day, Nate Solder (ankle) also was a full practice participant.
Safety Jabrill Peppers (transverse process fracture), defensive end Chris Peace (knee), tight end Rhett Ellison (concussion) and cornerback Corey Ballentine (concussion) did not practice.
It appears possible at this point that Peppers, who was initially optimistic about being able to play through the pain of the fracture, could be placed on season-ending injured reserve.
