It's always a good day at practice when all 53 players are out and about, and that was the case for the Giants on Thursday.
There were a few limited participants, though, with LT Nate Solder (neck) and DE Olivier Vernon (ribs) among them. Solder said after practice that he feels fine and should be ready to go on Monday.
And the way head coach Pat Shurmur spoke about Vernon appears to indicate he will be full-go against the Falcons as well.
"We saw his impact on the game last week," Shurmur said on Vernon. "He can create a pass rush, and that is one of the things that we could have done better in the first few weeks of the season, but when you have a player that can pass rush like he did, he was disruptive in teh game on Thursday night. Hopefully he can build on that."
Even better is the fact that TE Evan Engram was a full participant after being out with a sprained MCL for the past three weeks. The Giants didn't want to force him out on the field against the Eagles coming off a short week. But he looks to be primed for a return that will feature "no limitations."
"I feel good, I feel really good," Engram said after practice. "There's no limitations. They're letting me loose at practice. I'm pushing through and I'm getting my confidence back in it and everything's good right now, so definitely."
As for the Falcons, everything isn't that good at the moment. Receivers Calvin Ridley (ankle) and Mohammed Sanu (were both sidelined at practice on Thursday. They both suffered injuries in their Week 6 win over the Bucs.
The rookie Ridley leads the Falcons in receiving touchdowns with six, while Sanu has caught three as well. Atlanta would be without their No. 2 and 3 receiver if these two can't play by Monday.
Also making an appearance on the Giants' injury report was WR Russell Shepard, who joined Solder and Vernon as a limited participant. Tight end Rhett Ellison is also expected to return to the Giants on Monday, having been a full participant with Engram.
