  • Lions' Kelvin Sheppard: Contributes as special-teamer

    Sheppard produced five tackles in seven games for Detroit in 2018.

    Sheppard didn't sign with the Lions until midseason and only saw time on defense in one game. The 31-year-old veteran will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year.

  • Lions' Kelvin Sheppard: Joins Lions

    The Lions signed Sheppard to their active roster Wednesday.

    Sheppard most recently appeared with the Giants in 2017, playing in seven games and totaling 49 tackles and two interceptions. The 30-year-old linebacker will look to provide depth for Detroit.

  • Giants' Kelvin Sheppard: Productive in return to Giants

    Sheppard accounted for 49 tackles (32 solo), four passes defensed and two interceptions in seven games during the 2017 regular season.

    Sheppard, who was released by the Bears prior to the start of the 2017 regular season, re-joined the Giants in early November after appearing in all 16 games with the team in 2016. The middle linebacker notched a pair of interceptions in the Giants' season finale against the Redskins, but it remains to be seen if he'll remain in New York throughout 2018 as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

  • Giants' Kelvin Sheppard: Active Thursday

    Sheppard (groin) will play in Thursday's Thanksgiving game versus the Redskins.

    Sheppard's status for Thursday's game was in question after he was only able to practice in limited fashion throughout the short week. However, the 29-year-old's health is up to par, and he could see more snaps than usual with the Giants dealing with a plethora of injuries at linebacker.

  • Giants' Kelvin Sheppard: Questionable for Thursday

    Sheppard (groin) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Redskins, Jordan Raanan of reports.

    Sheppard was a limited participant in this week's shortened practice sessions, but even that still represents a step up from the single limited practice he logged last week. The 29-year-old has played in only one game this season, but with fellow linebackers B.J. Goodson (ankle) out, Calvin Munson (quadriceps) doubtful, and Jonathan Casillas (neck) questionable, there is some potential for Sheppard to see extensive snaps if he can suit up Thanksgiving Day.

  • Giants' Kelvin Sheppard: Set to sit Sunday

    Sheppard (groin) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Sheppard has only played in one game this season, logging 26 defensive snaps and accruing six tackles (five solo). However, this was while the Giants' linebacker unit was injury plagued, so even if he was healthy, the eighth-year pro likely wouldn't play much outside of special teams.

  • Giants' Kelvin Sheppard: Doubtful Sunday vs. Chiefs

    Sheppard (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Jordan Raanan of reports.

    Sheppard was only able to manage one limited practice this week, which doesn't look like it will be enough to allow him to play Sunday. He's one of three Giants linebackers on the Week 11 injury report, with B.J. Goodson (ankle) ruled out and Devon Kennard (quadriceps) listed as questionable.

  • Giants' Kelvin Sheppard: Questionable to return to Sunday's contest

    Sheppard is questionable to return with a groin injury, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

    The extent of injury is unknown at this point. In the meantime, Curtis Grant should witness a spike in usage on special teams.

  • Giants' Kelvin Sheppard: Re-signs with Giants

    Sheppard re-signed with the Giants on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

    Sheppard played all 16 games (11 starts) with the Giants last season, racking up 50 tackles (30 solo) and two pass defensed. New York needed to bolster its linebacking corps after placing Nigel Harris (ribs) on injured reserve earlier in the day. Since he is already somewhat familiar with the defensive schemes, there's a good chance Sheppard receives defensive reps Sunday against the 49ers.

  • Kelvin Sheppard: Contract terminated

    Sheppard was cut by the Bears on Friday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Sheppard signed with the Bears a little under two weeks ago and evidently failed to impress in his limited time. He's now eligible to sign with another team.

  • Bears' Kelvin Sheppard: Signs with Bears

    Sheppard signed with the Bears on Friday.

    Sheppard spent 2016 with the Giants, during which he started 11 games and recorded 50 tackles. The six-year veteran had his best professional year in 2015, when he recorded 105 stops for the Dolphins. He'll now fight to earn a spot among Chicago's linebacking corps.
