The Newark Star-Ledger's Zack Rosenblatt believes Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is "unlikely" to play against Washington on Sunday. He's eligible to come off IR this week, but a Week 7 return looks more likely. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate and Evan Engram will continue to operate as the top 3 options in the Giants' passing game.
The Giants expect WR Sterling Shepard to return to practice this week, according to the team's official website. Shepard missed the past 3 games with a toe injury. HC Joe Judge said he wants to see Shepard practice before determining whether the wideout will be ready to come off IR for Sunday's game against Washington. We'll watch his progress. Even if Shepard doesn't play in Week 6, he's worth a look as a potential Week 6 waiver pickup in leagues that saw him dropped.
The Giants have placed WR Sterling Shepard on IR. So he'll miss at least the next 3 games with his turf toe. That's an injury that tends to linger, so we'll see exactly when Shepard is able to get back on the field. His absence will mean more targets for WR Darius Slayton, WR Golden Tate and TE Evan Engram.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard came away from Sunday's loss to the Bears with turf toe. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, he's expected to miss at least this week's clash with the 49ers. Shepard's return timeline beyond that is not yet clear.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard suffered a toe injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears. He hobbled off to the locker room and is officially questionable to return.
The Giants will hire Joe Judge as their next HC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's an out-of-nowhere move. Judge spent the past 8 seasons in New England -- the first 7 as a special teams coach and 2019 as the WRs coach. Prior to that, he worked under Nick Saban at Alabama. At just 38 years old, he's now the league's 2nd-youngest HC. Frankly, that's about all we know about Judge at this point. We'll see who he tabs as his OC.
The Giants will fire HC Pat Shurmur, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Shurmur compiled a 9-23 record in 2 seasons at the helm in New York. We'll see who the G-Men tab as their next HC. They have an excellent core on offense with QB Daniel Jones, RB Saquon Barkley, WRs Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton and TE Evan Engram.
The forecast for today's Packers-Giants game calls for a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain. Winds are expected to come in at 10-20 mph. Aaron Rodgers and Co. are used to this type of weather. But Daniel Jones told ESPN's Jordan Raanan that he's never played in snow. Keep that in mind when making lineup decisions.
Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He leaves behind 8.1 targets per game. With TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) also out, there's a lot of volume to go around for WR Sterling Shepard, WR, Darius Slayton, RB Saquon Barkley and TE Kaden Smith.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) isn't listed on the final Week 12 injury report. He'll return for Sunday's game against the Bears. Consider Shepard a WR3 in what's a tough spot for the Giants offense.
Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Bears this weekend. TE Rhett Ellison (concussion) isn't expected to play, either, leaving Kaden Smith as New York's lead TE. He's not a fantasy option. The TE injuries should push more targets to the WRs and RB Saquon Barkley.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) put in a full practice on Wednesday. HC Pat Shurmur said that Shepard is still in the protocol but is expected to be cleared by the end of the week. Shepard averaged 8.5 targets per game across the season's first 4 weeks, but consider him a lower-end WR3 in Chicago on Sunday.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) was on the field for Monday's post-bye-week practice. That means he's made progress through the protocol, although we'd still consider him iffy for this weekend's game against the Bears. We'll get another update on Shepard's status on Wednesday.
As expected, WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets. He visited a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh this week and is reportedly a candidate for IR. Shepard's absence again leaves Golden Tate and rookie Darius Slayton as New York's top 2 WRs this weekend.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard went to Pittsburgh on Wednesday to meet with Dr. Joseph Maroon, a neurologist and concussion specialist, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. The team is reportedly considering placing Shepard on IR because of the issue. The wideout has sustained 2 concussions this season. He seemed near a return last week but then experienced concussion symptoms again. That kept him out Monday night and prompted the Pittsburgh trip. You can hang on to Shepard now (if possible) until we learn more, but you also must plan as though you won't get him back to your fantasy football roster this season. Shepard's continued absence would help the target outlook for Giants rookie WR Darius Slayton.
