Sheard was on the field for 51.0 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps this past season, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. A quality free agent signing for the Patriots, Sheard provided capable complementary play this season in tandem with fellow defensive linemen Rob Ninkovich and Chandler Jones, carving out some deep league utility in the process, while recording 37 tackles, eight sacks and four forced fumbles in 13 contests for the team.
Sheard (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Giants. Heading into Week 10's action the return of Sheard provides the Patriots with valuable defensive-line depth and an added pass-rushing threat, having recorded 12 tackles and four sacks in five games to date.
Sheard (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, ESPN.com reports. Sheard, who injured his ankle back on Oct. 18 and hasn't played since, is thus iffy for Week 10. In the five games that he saw action in, he provided the Patriots with valuable defensive line depth and an added pass-rushing threat, en route to recording 12 tackles and four sacks.
Sheard (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday. Sheard has been out since Week 6 due to a nagging ankle injury. His status for Sunday's game against the Giants is still unknown, but will become more clear as the week progresses. If he is able to play Sunday, it would be a huge boost for the Patriots' defensive line.
Sheard (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington. Sheard, who missed the entire week of practice, is thus slated to miss his third game in a row, which represents a hit to the Patriots' pass rush and defensive line depth. In five contests to date, Sheard has recorded 12 tackles and four sacks.
