Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Evan Engram set for matchup with Landon Collins

Giants tight end Evan Engram practiced against Landon Collins for the past two years. Sunday, he and Collins will likely often be matched up one-on-one.

Engram said practicing against Collins “definitely made me a better player versus man coverage and things like that, so it’s going to be exciting playing against him.”

What does he expect from the former Giant?

“They do a lot of stuff with him. I’m watching him more now (on film) than I did when he was here, just because (being on offense) it was kind of tough watching the defense play, but he’s still a great player,” Engram said. “He’s definitely one of the leaders on their defense, and he’s going to be flying around. So, he’s flying around, coming in the box, making good plays, and doing what he does, so it’s going to be a challenge.”

Dwayne Haskins “not far away”

Washington coach Jay Gruden isn’t ready to turn to rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins just yet. That time, though, might be coming.

“He’s not far away, I wouldn’t say. If I had to put him in the game, I’m sure he could play pretty well. It’s just a matter of right now, I think we have done some decent things on offense as far as throwing the ball. We had the five turnovers last week, which was not good, but I think after only three games with Case (Keenum) being in the offense only three games with a lot of new people, I think it’s important for him to continue to get another chance and see how he can do moving forward,” Gruden told New York media. “That’s not to say it is permanent, but Dwayne is still coming along. He’s young and I think it’s important for him to sit back and see how to prepare as a pro. He’ll get his time, he’ll get his chance. Just not yet.”
