Eli Manning will hold a news conference Friday to announce his retirement, sources tell @JordanRaanan and me.
With two Super Bowl MVP nods and a .500 career record of 117-117 over 16 seasons with the Giants, it appears to be the end for Eli Manning. He'll retire with 57,023 passing yards and 366 passing touchdowns and somehow managed to never miss a contest due to injury. The Daniel Jones era in New York should officially begin in 2020.
Giants TE Evan Engram (foot, out) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is out for Week 15. Engram remains out, so Kaden Smith will once again play a full-time role for the Giants. Last week, he saw five targets from Eli Manning.
Daniel Jones has been practicing, but the Giants, smartly, are taking it easy with their first-round pick. Manning will once again not have his full array of weapons, as Evan Engram is likely sitting out again with a foot injury. Manning has a chance to get his record back even at 117-117 in what will likely be his final home with the Giants and perhaps of his career.
