The New York Giants were able to get their first win of the season on Sunday against the Houston Texans. But they will miss one of their offensive weapons for the next month.

Tight end Evan Engram will miss the next two-to-four weeks, according to the NFL Network. He’s dealing with an MCL sprain.

He will miss at least one game with the injury and then the team will evaluate his condition from there. The best case scenario would be for Engram to return in two weeks.

Rhett Ellison will replace Engram for the time being. While Ellison will be an every-down player, Garrett Dickerson will likely be the pass catcher of the two.

Ellison, the 29-year-old Portola Valley, California native had three receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown after Engram left the contest with the Texans.

The 24-year-old Powder Springs, Georgia native had just one reception for 19 yards against the Texans. In the Giants loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2, he had a season-high seven receptions for 67 yards and a touchdown.

Engram had two receptions for 18 yards in the season-opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

This is his second season with the team. He appeared in 15 games, including 11 starts in 2016. He had 64 receptions for 722 yards and six touchdowns.
