HC Pat Shurmur said Thursday that there's a "strong possibility" that WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) isn't cleared for this weekend's game against the Lions. He's been limited in practice the past 2 weeks, so he's made some progress through the protocol. According to ESPN's Jordan Raanan, the Giants "hope" to get Shepard back for Week 9. Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer will again operate the New York's top 3 WRs this Sunday.
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 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.
