News on Sterling Shepard’s ankle appears to be good


The Giants got some good news on second-year wideout Sterling Shepard.

According to Jordan Raanan of, Shepard is expected to be “in the clear” after undergoing an MRI.

That’s good news for Shepard, who had to be carted off the field Wednesday, but the fact he seems to have avoided a high ankle sprain means his absence shouldn’t be prolonged.

Shepard had an impressive rookie season, with 65 catches for 683 yards and eight touchdowns. If he’s able to match those numbers this year after the addition of wide receiver Brandon Marshall and tight end Evan Engram, the Giants have the chance to be a prolific passing game.

  1. Hey, NBC PFT, you asked for comments if problems with the new site came up. I print off the stories (usually about 18 pages worth) each morning at work to take with me during the morning. This new set-up does not allow for that. I went to print the whole group of stories and it will only let me print the first two stories. Is there a printer friendly version available?

    I feel lost not being able to print them all up in a bundle.

    So he was crying over an ankle sprain?


    Clearly, you have never played team sports or you would understand why he was emotional. He didn’t want to let his team down and by getting hurt, he felt like he did. So…….
