EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - For the second straight day, injured cornerback Janoris Jenkins wasn't even outside for Giants practice, casting a huge shadow of doubt over whether he'll be able to play in Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon.

Jenkins suffered a hand and ankle injury in the Giants' opener, which apparently got worse as he practiced last week. Because despite practicing fully all week, he was unable to play in the Giants' loss to Detroit on Monday night. He tried to test out his injured ankle with trainers watching about two hours before the game, but they ultimately decided he could not go...

Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was limited in practice on Wednesday, as the team had a jog-thru in advance of Sunday's game against the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Beckham made his season debut Monday night against the Lions after he tested his sprained ankle during pregame warmups at MetLife Stadium.

He had been a limited participant in practice last Thursday and Friday.

GEICO SportsNite: Engram 00:01:53
Giants rookie tight end Evan Engram gives his take on the team's 24-10 loss to the Lions on Monday night.

Rookie TE Evan Engram was flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for grabbing his crotch after scoring his first-career touchdown during the Giants' 24-10 loss to the Lions on Monday night.

Engram said after the game that the penalty was "bullcrap," and that he didn't try to do anything intentionally.

"I don't know what they were talking about, I did nothing intentional, but that was bull crap," Engram said. "That was not the intention, that was obvious. I haven't seen it, so I guess I'll look at it."

GEICO SportsNite: Giants lose 00:06:10
Head coach Ben McAdoo and quarterback Eli Manning discuss what went wrong in the Giants' 24-10 loss to the Lions on Monday night.

Matthew Stafford threw for two touchdowns, rookie Jamal Agnew broke the game open with an 88-yard punt return in the fourth quarter and the Detroit Lions beat the New York Giants 24-10 on Monday night.

The Lions (2-0) sacked Eli Manning five times and Stafford put together another big game while sending the Giants (0-2) to a second straight disappointing performance in a season where so much was expected. Star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. returned from a sprained left ankle, but New York still struggled offensively. >> Read more

Odell Beckham's eventual return to the Giants lineup will solve a lot of their offensive problems.

But even he can't fix the whole thing.

After he was waived by the New York Giants over the weekend, tight end Will Tye is excited to be a member of the Jets after they signed him on Sunday.

"I'm happy to be anywhere, just being able to contribute, because I know I can help," Tye said, according to Newsday's Bob Glauber. "I know I belong in this league. That's a huge plus for me, to be somewhere fast. It feels good to be wanted, to be somewhere you know you can help and contribute. I'm ready to be on the field, ready to play, that's for sure."

Despite having 90 catches for 859 yards and four touchdowns in 29 games over the past two seasons, Tye was cut by the Giants in favor of Rhett Ellison, Evan Engram, Matt LaCosse and Jerell Adams.

Though he has been a starter for the Giants the past two season, TE Will Tye finds himself on the bubble as the Giants' preseason comes to a close. 

Tye never saw himself in this position heading into the year, but he knows it comes with the territory when going undrafted. 

"No. No, definitely not," Tye told The Post's Brian Lewis. "But honestly, it comes with the job. You don't expect it, but you're always subject to change, so it doesn't really [surprise] you as much as people would think or like it to. That's that undrafted lifestyle, no matter what every year. They say [it's like that for] everybody, but everybody knows it's not everybody."

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants found the end zone for the first time this preseason, but that doesn't change the story of who they still are. They are exactly what they were at the end of last season:

A team with a dominant defense and an offense with serious flaws.

Daily News Live: Jets vs. Giants 00:05:18
The Daily News Live panel previews the preseason game between the Giants and the Jets.

Normally this wouldn't be alarming, especially for a veteran team halfway through the preseason, but the Giants still haven't found the end zone this summer. They've scored six field goals in eight quarters. And they've only reached the red zone four times in 22 drives.

Now, to be fair, most of their playmakers have barely played this summer. That includes quarterback Eli Manning, who has played one half of football, and injured receivers Odell Beckham, Jr. (ankle) and Brandon Marshall (shoulder) who have barely played at all. So maybe not much should've been expected from a bunch of backups playing behind an offensive line that has been somewhere between mediocre and awful.

Former Giants tight end Mark Bavaro thinks rookie tight end Evan Engram is more athletic than Jeremy Shockey, who became a star with the Giants during his tenure from 2002 to 2007.

Shockey had 74 receptions for 894 yards and two touchdowns during his rookie season in 2002.

"He's definitely the most athletic tight end I've seen on the Giants since (Jeremy) Shockey," Bavaro said about Engram, according to the NY Post. "And I think he's more athletic than Shockey."

Giants TE Evan Engram is officially a professional after playing in the preseason opener against the Steelers last week. However, those first-game nerves will still be there when the Giants take on the Browns Monday night. 

"It's still going to be kind of nerve-wracking and exciting," he told Giants.com's Michael Eisen. "I'm really pumped about it. It was a really cool feeling out there, getting out there and having your uniform on and being out there warming up. It kind of really hit me in that moment, and I don't think it's ever going to go away. I'm really excited, I can't wait for Monday night. I think it adds to my game, the eagerness to do well and get out there and run around to make plays. I think all that adds into my performance." 

It is hard for rookies not to be shocked during their first taste of NFL action, and Engram learned that against the Steelers as he needed to come back down to Earth. 

"I had to lock in," the 22-year-old. "Just being out there, I was kind of wide-eyed and a little nervous. So, being in the huddle, I kind of had to slow down, lock in, hear the play call, get to the line. Just kind of slow everythingn down. in practice, we go through reads and just do all my stuff I usually do. But in the game, sometimes those nerves will build up, especially being a rookie and your first time out there, definitely stuff flies over your head. So, just kind of slowing everything down, locking in, get back to what you've been doing. That's probably the biggest thing I've taken away."

Giants' great, Mark Bavaro, liked his former team spending their first round pick on TE Evan Engram as the team's recent players at the position have not worked out. 

Speaking at a golf event benefitting the Ottis Anderson Scholarship Foundation in West Orange, N.J., Bavaro told The Post's George Willis it is about time the Giants acquired a playmaker at tight end. 

"The way the game is today, you need a big pass-catching tight end, a guy who can run like a wide receiver," Bavaro said. "That's the way the game is. But for some reason they wouldn't get anybody."

Giants tight ends coach Kevin M. Gilbride chats with SNY's Ralph Vacchiano about rookie Evan Engram.

Evan Engram, the Giants' first-round draft pick, will throw out the first pitch before the Mets game at CitField on Friday night.

After that, for the rest the Giants rookies who'll be there too, drinks are on him.

Engram's deal will be worth $10.7 million over four seasons, with a signing bonus of $5.9 million and a fifth-year team option for 2021.

First-round pick, Evan Engram, thoroughly impressed his coaches and teammates during OTAs, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. 

The Ole Miss product has been showcasing his play-making abilities already. During the final OTA practice last Friday, he leaped over his defender, LB Jonathan Casillas, to haul in a spectacular grab. Casillas recognized first-hand what the rookie can do.

"He's such a dynamic player playing the tight end position with his skill set," Casillas said.

The Giants' first round pick, Evan Engram, showed off his play-making abilities at OTAs Monday, according to Dan Salomone of Giants.com

Engram was targeted numerous times by QB Eli Manning, and the two clearly showed their chemistry throughout practice. He showed off his nimble feet and soft hands on a sweet back-shoulder grab from Manning down the sideline to highlight his performance.

The friendship began at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., when the quarterback with the big arm seemed to like throwing to the tight end with the deep speed.

"Yeah, it is funny because Evan was my favorite player at the Senior Bowl and I told him that there," said the newest Giants quarterback, Davis Webb. "And a couple months later we are on the same team. So that's really cool."

Though it may be three years before Webb and Evan Engram are playing catch again in a game that matters, they are indeed on the same NFL team after Engram was drafted in the first round by the Giants, and then Webb was drafted in the third. They are on vastly different tracks: Engram is expected to have an immediate impact as an offensive weapon, while Webb figures to sit behind quarterback Eli Manning until at least 2020.
