The New York Giants signed long-time Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph in the offseason to bring in another veteran presence and some valuable depth at the tight end position alongside Evan Engram.

Kyle Rudolph Injury Update

Rudolph had yet to participate in training camp as he rehabbed from foot surgery he had during the spring. But after passing a physical, he is now scheduled to return to practice.

The move instantly helps the Giants' tight end depth chart, which got a little thinnner on Tuesday following the release of Cole Hikutini and Rysen John being placed on injured reserve because of his ankle.

Rudolph's production has dropped in recent years, falling to 28 receptions for 334 yards and 1 touchdown in a reduced role with Minnesota last year. He could still be an asset, though, for a Giants passing game looking to improve in 2021.

The Giants currently own +400 odds to win the NFC East, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
