  • Shepard announced his retirement Thursday in a post on his personal Instagram account. Shepard, who turned 30 years old Thursday, spent seven seasons in the NFL with the Buccaneers, Panthers and Giants after going undrafted out of LSU in 2013. He served as a depth wideout throughout his career, making his biggest statistical splash with the Bucs in 2016, when he hauled in 23 of 40 targets for 341 yards and two touchdowns over 14 games. He was limited to three games in his final professional season in 2019 after a sprained foot resulted in him landing on injured reserve last September.

  • Shepard (foot) caught three of eight targets for 25 yards over three games in 2019. Shepard sustained a foot sprain in Week 3 and ended up spending the rest of the year on injured reserve. The 29-year-old had minimal fantasy value anyway, especially after rookie Darius Slayton took over a starting role. Shepard is set to be an unrestricted free agent in March, and even if he re-signs in the Big Apple, he'll need other receivers to get injured to have fantasy relevance.

  • Coach Pat Shurmur said Shepard (foot) may return from injured reserve with Golden Tate suffering a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Bears, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Shepard was placed on IR with a foot sprain, so it's likely he's healthy enough to play by now. The 29-year-old is eligible to be activated from IR for this Sunday's matchup against the Packers, and he could fill in as the No. 3 wideout behind Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton. If Shepard indeed returns, his fantasy value is low, especially if Evan Engram (foot) returns.

  • The Giants placed Shepard (foot) on injured reserve Wednesday, Michael Elsen of the team's official site reports. Shepard sustained a foot injury during Sunday's win over the Buccaneers, the severity of which will now cause him to miss at least the next eight weeks on IR. His absence will make additional offensive snaps available for Darius Slayton, TJ Jones and Cody Core.

  • Shepard (foot) is not practicing Thursday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Shepard has yet to practice this week due to a left foot sprain. He appears to be in danger of missing Sunday's contest against Washington, in which case rookie wideout Darius Slayton could see increased snaps on offense.
