The Giants will officially be without tight end Evan Engram on Monday night, and it now looks like the Philadelphia Eagles may be getting one of their playmakers back into the lineup.
Eagles running back Jordan Howard has missed each of the team's last three games due to a shoulder injury, but he was a limited participant in practice this week and is officially listed as questionable for Monday night.
The issue for Howard is that the former Chicago Bear has still not yet been cleared for contact, and while there's a chance that could happen before Monday night, there's still a scenario in which he misses his fourth straight game.
In his first season with the Eagles, Howard has been an effective runner, picking up 525 yards on 119 carries (4.4 yards per carry). Sharing duties with rookie Miles Sanders, Howard has rushed for 85 yards or more three times, including his previous two games before getting hurt.
If Howard can't play, the Eagles will need to rely more on Sanders, who was once Saquon Barkley's backup at Penn State. Sanders has totaled 879 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns.
The Eagles also recently brought back veteran Jay Ajayi to add more depth in the backfield.
