EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Giants tight end Evan Engram, who was placed on injured reserve yesterday, said today he will have surgery on his injured foot on Friday. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay.
Engram said the goal of the operation is "just putting stability back in my foot. … it's not a full Lisfranc injury, but the ligament is still not healed correctly. There's a little bit of space so they are going to put, from my knowledge, joints back to together to let that ligament heal properly and kind of stabilize the joints so the ligament is not stretched."
Engram was hurt against Dallas on Nov. 4. He had hoped to return to the field this season, but his foot never improved to the point where that was possible.
"It's unfortunate," he said. "Definitely wanted to get back and get back out there with the team. Didn't really go as planned recovery wise, and just got to shut it down."
Engram finished his season with 44 receptions for 467 yards and three touchdowns, including a 75-yarder at Tampa Bay that was the longest scoring catch by a tight end in Giants history. He also had his first two 100-yard receiving games in the season's first three weeks.
Asked if he will be "okay" for training camp, Engram said, "One hundred percent, yeah. From the window they gave me, I'll be more than ready for training camp. Like I said, just going to attack the process and attack each day. Just try to get back as soon as possible."
*Engram has been elected the winner of the 19th annual George Young Good Guy Award, as voted on by the Giants' chapter of the Professional Football Writers of America.
The award, named for the late general manager of the Giants, is given annually to recognize a Giants player for his consistent and outstanding cooperation with the writers who cover the team on a daily basis. Though he has endured a frustrating year because of injury, the third-year tight end has been consistently accessible and candid with reporters during a difficult season for the team.
Safety and special teams captain Michael Thomas finished second in the voting for a second straight year, while center Jon Halapio finished third. All three received at least one first-place vote on the 14 ballots cast, as did linebacker Markus Golden and safety Antoine Bethea. In all, 12 different players received at least one vote.
