Giants injury report: Rhett Ellison unlikely to play vs. Bears

Prior to practice on Thursday, New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur revealed that tight end Rhett Ellison (concussion) would not participate and is unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.

As the team’s best blocking tight end, that creates problems for the Giants which are likely to be compounded by the absence Evan Engram (foot), who also sat out of practice on Thursday.

If both Engram and Ellison are unable to play, the Giants will lean on Scott Simonson, Kaden Smith and potentially the recently re-signed Garrett Dickerson, who currently resides on the practice squad.

Meanwhile, left tackle Nate Solder (concussion) appeared to be a limited participant in the portion of practice open to the media, but was given a full participation designation by the team.

Finally, cornerback Janoris Jenkins (concussion) and wide receiver Sterling Shepard (concussion) were once again practicing in full and remain on track to potentially play on Sunday.

Here’s a look at the team’s official injury report for Thursday:

Did not participate: TE Evan Engram (foot) and TE Rhett Ellison (concussion)

Limited participant: N/A

Full participant: LT Nate Solder (concussion), C Jon Halapio (hamstring), CB Janoris Jenkins (concussion), RT Mike Remmers (back) and WR Sterling Shepard (concussion)
