The story of the moment is, of course, the injury to New York Giants rookie safety Xavier McKinney, as well as the injury to LB David Mayo.

But their injuries aren’t the only stories going on in Giants’ land. The team’s second Blue-White intra-squad scrimmage Friday night, and there is still plenty going on as the team gets ready to open the season on September 14th against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

So let’s get to the headlines before the players take the practice field this morning.

Can Giants’ Evan Engram reach his immense potential in Year 4? - ESPN

“Those who haven’t watched that dude need to,” one NFL offensive coordinator told ESPN recently in a poll where Engram surprisingly received a vote as the top tight end in football despite a lack of consistent production. “He’s a true receiver. Polished releases, whole route tree, run after catch. He just plays in a bad offense.”

Why the Giants need Thomas to: The Giants were at the bottom of the barrel last season when it came to tackle play. Nate Solder and Mike Remmers ranked last and 10th-to-last among all NFL tackles last year in total pressures allowed, which played a big role in the Giants ranking ahead of only the Dolphins in pressures allowed among all 32 NFL teams’ tackle units.
