The New York Giants were back on the field Thursday, preparing for a Week 3 battle against the Atlanta Falcons at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
One day after exceeding expectations set by head coach Joe Judge and participating in practice on a limited basis, tight end Evan Engram (calf) was back at it.
If Engram participates again on Friday, he stands a solid chance of making his season debut on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the news was not as good for wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hip) or running back Saquon Barkley (knee). But especially Golladay.
Kenny Golladay (hip) ran no routes on air during the open portion of practice. Simply standing in his uniform. Saquon Barkley (knee) didn’t do much, either #Giants. But most notable how idle Golladay was https://t.co/XSkHNp5JYi

Both Golladay and Barkley were still listed as limited. They were joined by rookie wide receiver Kadarius Toney (ankle).
