Giants TE Evan Engram, who suffered a sprained MCL during Sunday's game against the Texans, is not dealing with a severe sprain, a team source told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.
Due to the non-severe nature of the sprain, the expectation is that Engram will be out about 2-4 weeks -- the normal recovery time for that injury.
A lot will depend on how he responds to treatment and whether it gets any worse. But the Giants are hopeful, the source said, that he won't miss more than a couple of games.
In the wake of Engram's injury, the Giants signed practice squad TE Garrett Dickerson on Tuesday. The corresponding move for adding Dickerson was waiving WR/KR Kaelin Clay.
In the meantime, Rhett Ellison figures to take over Engram's role as the receiving tight end, with Scott Simonson and Dickerson splitting the blocking tight end duties.
An Englewood, NJ native, Dickerson is a hometown product that played his high school ball at one of the state's best schools in Bergen Catholic.
