The Giants got crushed by the Rams on Sunday but it looks like one of their defensive contributors has avoided a major injury.
According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, defensive lineman Danny Shelton has a pectoral strain and is considered day-to-day.
The concern with a pectoral injury is usually that it’s torn, which is then a season-ending injury. But per Rapoport, the belief is that’s not the case for Shelton.
A former Browns first-round pick in 2015, Shelton signed with the Giants as a free agent in March. He’s been a rotational player for the club, playing 32 percent of New York’s defensive snaps. He’s registered 16 total tackles with a half-sack in six games this season.
The Giants will take on the Panthers in Week Seven.
