That means it will be Manning's game to play, at least one contest in what is likely to be his final season in New York. With little else to achieve in 2019, Monday at least offers Giants fans a chance to cheer on their two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback one more time, even with the team on the road in Philadelphia.
Manning will likely have tight end Evan Engram (foot) and receiver Golden Tate (concussion) to work with, according to Shurmur, who said the two continue to trend upward and should be available Monday. Engram, who hasn't played since Week 9, and Tate were among four Giants who returned to practice Thursday.
