Giants WR Shepard (concussion) out vs. BillsReuters | New York | Updated: 14-09-2019 00:21 IST | Created: 14-09-2019 00:19 IST
New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard is out of Sunday's game against the visiting Buffalo Bills due to a concussion. Shepard was in concussion protocol throughout the week after recording six receptions for 42 yards in a season-opening loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
The fourth-year wideout played 68 of the 69 offensive snaps for the Giants, who are also without Golden Tate (suspension). Shepard, 26, caught 66 passes for 872 yards and four touchdowns in 16 starts last season.
With Shepard sidelined, the Giants' wide receiver depth is reduced to Bennie Fowler, Cody Latimer, Darius Slayton, Russell Shepard, T.J. Jones and Cody Core. Tight end Evan Engram was targeted a team-high 14 times in the Week 1 loss to the Cowboys.
