Sterling Shepard Remains on IR
The Giants, who were contemplating designating receiver Sterling Shepard for return this week, have not yet done so as of Wednesday.
Shepard has been on injured reserve with turf toe suffered in a Week 2 loss to the Bears. The Giants have really missed their longest-tenured receiver, who was by far one of the best in finding and exploiting soft spots in zone coverage.
With the Giants having two games in 11 days, the feeling was that Shepard would probably be designated to return no later than next week with there being a longshot of him playing next Thursday night against the Eagles.
Thus it makes sense for the Giants to have delayed starting the 21-day window on Shepard.
