Shepard (concussion) was a full participant at Monday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
The Giants won't release an official injury report until Wednesday, but the fact he was considered a full participant Monday backs up coach Pat Shurmur's optimism for a return this week. Regardless, the 25-year-old will need to gain clearance from an independent neurologist at some point this week if he's going to play Sunday against the Bears. Shepard suffered his second concussion of the season Week 5 versus the Vikings and has missed the last five games.
Coach Pat Shurmur said after Monday's practice that he's optimistic Shepard will clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol and suit up Week 12 against the Bears, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
While Shepard remains in the protocol coming off the Giants' Week 11 bye, he took a notable step forward by participating in Monday's practice. The extent of his participation won't be known until the Giants release their first injury report of the week Wednesday, and Shepard still will need to gain clearance from an independent neurologist at some point if he's to return to action versus the Bears. Shepard has been diagnosed with two concussions this season and already experienced a setback while recovering from his latest head injury, so he'll likely have more of an uphill battle to gaining clearance this week than the other three players on the roster that are in the concussion protocol (Rhett Ellison, Janoris Jenkins and Nate Solder).
Shepard (concussion) was seen participating Monday in the Giants' practice, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
The Giants won't release their first Week 12 injury report until Wednesday, at which time Shepard likely will go down as either a limited or full participant in practice. The difference between limited and full participation is fairly significant for the wideout, as the latter would indicate that he has been given the green light to take contact. Shepard has been sidelined since Week 5 after suffering his second concussion of the season and will need to gain clearance from an independent neurologist in order to suit up Sunday against the Bears.
Coach Pat Shurmur said Monday that Shepard (concussion) will resume practicing while the Giants are on bye in Week 11, Tom Rock of Newsday reports.
While Shepard's ability to practice is encouraging, it's likely he'll still be barred from taking contact since he remains in the NFL's concussion protocol. The bye week should aid Shepard's chances of making it back to action for the Giants' next game Nov. 24 versus the Bears, but clearing the five-step protocol for head injuries still looms as a major obstacle for the wideout. Shepard already has been diagnosed with two concussions this season. He appeared on tap to return ahead of the Giants' Week 9 loss to the Cowboys, only to suffer a setback shortly before the contest.
Shepard (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Shepard will miss a fifth straight game as he recovers from his second concussion of the year. He cleared the concussion protocol last Friday, only to re-enter it a couple days later and get ruled out for Monday's 37-18 loss to the Cowboys. Another absence leaves Darius Slayton in a full-time role outside, with Golden Tate manning the slot and Bennie Fowler and/or Cody Latimer taking the third receiver spot. Shepard didn't practice in any capacity this week, but an upcoming bye could allow him to get healthy before the Giants face the Bears on Nov. 24. Of course, that's far from a sure thing.
Shepard (concussion) appears unlikely to return to practice this week, as Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports there will be "no activity" for the wideout.
Shepard has been sidelined for four consecutive weeks now, and with another recent occurrence of concussion symptoms, the team won't be taking any risks. Despite an uphill battle ahead, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports that the team hasn't yet considered injured reserve, and intends for Shephard to return this season. In the meantime, look for Golden Tate and Darius Slayton to continue to have active roles in the passing game, especially with Evan Engram (foot) ruled out for the Week 10 matchup against the Jets.
Shepard (concussion) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Shepard had been in line to return from a three-game absence to play in the Giants' eventual loss to the Cowboys on Monday Night Football, but he was ruled out a day in advance of the contest after informing the training staff that he suffered a recurrence of concussion symptoms. In light of the setback along with the fact that Shepard has already been diagnosed with two concussions this season, the wideout's availability for the Week 10 game against the Jets -- and perhaps the rest of the season -- looks to be in peril.
The Giants announced that Shepard re-entered the NFL's concussion protocol. The wideout has been ruled out for the Giants' Monday night game against the Cowboys.
Shepard cleared the five-step concussion protocol earlier this week and was set to return from a three-game absence, but he reported a recurrence of the concussion symptoms after meeting with the Giants' medical staff Saturday evening, per Dan Duggan of The Athletic. With Shepard's absence now extended by at least one more contest, Golden Tate, Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley should be locked in as the Giants' clear top three options in the passing game.
Shepard cleared the NFL's concussion protocol Friday and will play Monday against the Cowboys, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
After suffering his second concussion of the season in the Giants' Week 5 loss to the Vikings, Shepard hadn't managed anything more than limited activity in practices the past three weeks before putting in a full session Thursday. The wideout passed the final step of the concussion protocol Friday, when an independent neurologist granted him full clearance for game action. With Shepard back in the fold following a three-game absence, rookie signal-caller Daniel Jones will have all of his key weapons in the passing game at his disposal for the first time in his seven starts.
Shepard (concussion) was a full practice participant Friday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Full participation on consecutive days ensures active status with most injuries, but that isn't always the case for players in the concussion protocol. Shepard will need clearance from an independent neurologist before he can play in Monday's game against the Cowboys.
Shepard (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports.
It's Shepard first full workout since he sustained his second concussion of the season in the Giants' Week 5 loss to the Vikings. While Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record notes that the Giants are optimistic Shepard will be ready to return from a three-game absence to play Monday against Dallas, the wideout will first need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist. If he gets the green light to play, Shepard should step back in as the Giants' No. 1 wideout, which would likely result in a drop off in targets for Golden Tate (30 over the past three games).
Shepard (concussion) will take contact during Wednesday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Shepard has been working through the league's five-step protocol since suffering his second diagnosed concussion of the season Week 5. He's been a limited participant in practice the last two weeks, but his ability to absorb contact Wednesday suggests he could be listed as a full participant in the Giants' first injury report of Week 9, which will be released Thursday. Even if Shepard upgrades to full participation, he'll still need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist later this week in order to play in games, per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. Shepard isn't a lock to be removed from the protocol in time for Monday's tilt with the Cowboys.
Shepard (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Detroit, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
A limited participant in every practice the past two weeks, Shepard hasn't been able to clear concussion protocol after suffering his second head injury of the season back in Week 5. His absence locks in Golden Tate and Darius Slayton for heavy snap counts, while Cody Latimer, Bennie Fowler and Cody Core have all seen some run in the No. 3 role.
Shepard (concussion) remained a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Shepard has now maintained limited activity in each of the Giants' last five practices, but until he upgrades to full participation, his return to game action shouldn't be viewed as forthcoming. Coach Pat Shurmur admitted as much earlier Thursday, stating that it's a "strong possibility" that Shepard will remain unavailable for a third consecutive game Sunday in Detroit, per Dan Duggan of The Athletic. The Giants will affix an official injury designation to Shepard following their final practice of Week 8 on Friday.
Coach Pat Shurmur said Thursday that it's a "strong possibility" that Shepard (concussion) won't play in Sunday's game against the Lions, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Though Shepard continues to participate in practice in limited fashion and said Tuesday that he has been free of concussion-like symptoms for two weeks, the Giants look prepared to proceed without their top wideout for yet another game. Shurmur added that Shepard is still in concussion protocol, so he'll continue to be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.
Shepard (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Shepard also logged a trio of limited practices last week, so his activity Wednesday doesn't necessarily represent a step forward in the concussion protocol. On a more positive note, Shepard said Tuesday that he's free of concussion symptoms, per Tom Rock of Newsday. Since he's recovering from his second concussion of the season, Shepard will probably need to resume taking contact in practice by the end of the week in addition to receiving clearance from an independent neurologist before he can be expected to play Sunday against the Lions.
Shepard said Tuesday that he's been free of concussion symptoms for two weeks and is only waiting for medical clearance to resume playing, Tom Rock of Newsday reports.
Though Shepard indicated he feels fine physically, doctors are understandably proceeding cautiously with the wideout while he recovers from his second concussion of the season. Shepard practiced on a limited basis Wednesday through Friday last week, so he'll likely need to advance to full participation at some point within the next few days and gain clearance from an independent neurologist in order to play Sunday in Detroit.
Shepard (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Arizona.
Despite managing limited participation earlier this week, Shepard won't make it back from his second concussion of the season in time to avoid a Week 7 absence. The Giants likely will deploy Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer in three-wide sets, though Cody Core and Bennie Fowler could also get some snaps. On the plus side with regard to the team's offense, top back Saquon Barkley and tight end Evan Engram have been cleared to play.
Shepard (concussion) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Cardinals, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Shepard suffered his second concussion of the season in Week 5 and missed last Thursday's loss to the Patriots, so it's not a major surprise that he isn't expected to clear the concussion protocol in advance of this weekend. The 25-year-old has been working as a limited practice participant this week, but has yet to be cleared for any contact work. Golden Tate and Darius Slayton should take the lion's share of the snaps at wide receiver versus Arizona on Sunday.
Shepard (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record, Shepard remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and was donning a non-contact jersey during the portion of Thursday's session that was available to the media. Though Shepard appears to be progressing well from his second concussion of the season, he's no lock to clear the five-step protocol before Sunday's game against the Cardinals arrives. Wideouts Golden Tate and Darius Slayton and tight end Evan Engram and running back Saquon Barkley would represent Daniel Jones' top targets in the passing game in the event Shepard is sidelined for another game.
