Sterling Shepard Injury Updates

Giants QB Daniel Jones is expected to miss time with the hamstring injury he suffered in yesterday's win over the Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones is scheduled for a Monday MRI to get a better idea of the severity of the injury. Rapoport hears that Jones might end up missing just 1 game. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but look for QB Colt McCoy to start vs. the Seahawks this weekend.

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 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.

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) isn't listed on the final Week 9 injury report and will return for Monday night's game against the Cowboys. He's back on the WR3 map. This will be the 1st time this season that the Giants have Shepard, Golden Tate, Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram on the field together.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's not looking like a good bet to be cleared in time for this weekend's game against the Bills. WR Cody Latimer, meanwhile, was added to Thursday's injury report with a calf. He didn't practice. The Giants could be down to WRs Bennie Fowler and Russell Shepard.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard suffered a broken thumb in Thursday’s practice. The injury makes him questionable for Week 1 at Dallas. If he sits, it’ll provide a short-term boost to Golden Tate and Evan Engram. Shepard's current Round 8 ADP is sure to drop, but we can't say we're excited about jumping on this "buy low" opportunity.

The Giants have ruled WR Odell Beckham out for Sunday’s game at Washington. Beckham shows up on the Friday injury report as a limited participant after sustaining a quad bruise. The team today determined that he won’t be able to play. That obviously raises the target ceilings for WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram, while also lowering the fantasy floor for QB Eli Manning. Fortunately, he didn’t look attractive for lineups anyway. The loss of 1 of the Giants’ 2 best players also raises the floor for the Washington defense, which is a decent streaming option.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) is not listed on the final injury report. He had a procedure early in the week to remove a cyst from his back but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. Shepard is a low-end fantasy play vs. Carolina’s 10th-ranked WR defense.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (neck) and TE Evan Engram (ribs) missed Wednesday's practice. Engram is dealing with bruised ribs; we haven't gotten an update on Shepard's injury. Both guys are iffy for Sunday's finale vs. the Redskins.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He was limited on Thursday and Friday but obviously isn’t in danger of missing Sunday’s game against the Eagles. The hamstring still adds a bit of risk to his fantasy outlook, especially after Shepard busted with a 2-catch, 16-yard outing last week.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) was limited in Thursday's practice. He was off the injury report altogether on Wednesday, so it's unclear if he suffered a setback or if the Giants are just giving him some rest. Check back for another update tomorrow.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it after Shepard played 61 of 62 snaps last week. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field tomorrow.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (migraines) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He'll return for a plus matchup against the Raiders, although the switch to QB Geno Smith adds some risk to Shepard’s outlook.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard was added to the injury report on Saturday as questionable with an illness. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Shepard is dealing with migraines and is in legitimate danger of missing today's game against the Chiefs. We'll find out his status by noon ET. Even if active, though, this news adds risk to his Week 11 outlook.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Shepard "unlikely" to play. His absence would leave Roger Lewis and Tavarres King as New York's top 2 WRs. TE Evan Engram would be the best target bet.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) isn't listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. It doesn't look like that ankle will be an issue, making Shepard safe to get into fantasy lineups vs. the Rams.
