The New York Giants lost wide receiver Sterling Shepard on Monday Night Football. He was injured against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.
Shepard had just returned to the team after missing the team’s Week 8 game with a hamstring injury. The reports suggest that Shepard injured his quad against the Chiefs.
He was injured in the second quarter. He will not return to the contest.
This was a non-contact injury. He planted his foot when he came back on a route before going down with the injury.
He was in a lot of pain. Before his departure, he had seven receptions for 25 yards.
With the Giants on a short week, it is not likely that he will play on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders. If Shepard is not able to play against the Raiders, then his teammates will have to step up to replace his absence.
Shepard has already missed three games this season. He recently missed the team’s Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers.
He also missed the team’s games in Week 3 and Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints and the Dallas Cowboys.
