  • Sterling Shepard Begins Camp On PUP List

    The New York Giants placed wide receiver Sterling Shepard (Achilles) on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Tuesday. Shepard had a lost season in 2021, playing in just three games and tearing his Achilles in Week 15 after battling lower-body injuries for most of the year. The 29-year-old isn't a lock to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, making it likely that he'll be avoided in fantasy drafts that involve 12 teams. Once he's ready for action, he'll be involved in a competition for targets that includes Kenny Golladay, former first-rounder Kadarius Toney and rookie second-rounder Wan'Dale Robinson. Shepard has yet to have a 1,000-yard season in his six seasons with the Giants, and he's quickly becoming an injury liability. He hasn't played in a full season since 2018.

  • Sterling Shepard Starts Jogging

    New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard (Achilles) said that he started jogging for the first time last week. "I'm feeling good taking it day by day. Out at practice everyday taking mental reps, balls off of the jugs," Shepard said. He's not putting pressure on an exact return date this offseason, but the Giants are hopeful that he'll be back by August. The 29-year-old tore his Achilles on Dec. 19 but has made good progress in his rehab since then. Shepard won't be ready for the start of training camp, but barring any setbacks, he could be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. It was a wasted year in 2021 for Shepard due to injuries, as he caught a career-low 36 passes for 366 yards and one touchdown in seven games. He'll be competing for targets alongside Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney this year in a receiving corps that should have better injury luck.
