New York Giants tight end Evan Engram likely will miss a few weeks with a sprained MCL in his right knee.

ESPN reported the extent of the injury on Monday, but the Giants already had resigned themselves to the idea that Engram would be out for multiple games.

Engram left the locker room in Houston with a brace on his right knee and said he knew immediately something was wrong with the knee.

Head coach Pat Shurmur said Sunday night the Giants didn't "know how bad it is."

In Engram's absence, Rhett Ellison caught three passes, including a 16-yard touchdown that gave the Giants a 20-3 lead over the Texans.

In good news for the Giants, it appears running back Saquon Barkley will not miss time. He was hit on the knee on his first carry and left the game for the next series. Barkley said after the game he took a "pretty good hit but was able to fight through it."
