  • Giants' Danny Shelton: Limited in return to practice

    The Giants activated Shelton (undisclosed) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Shelton was limited in his return to practice due to "COVID ramp up," but he will have two more opportunities to participate in full ahead of Sunday's season finale against Washington.

  • Giants' Danny Shelton: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Shelton (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Shelton's move to the COVID list is magnified by starting nose tackle Austin Johnson being questionable with a foot injury for Sunday against the Eagles. If both miss, the Giants' defensive line depth will be stretched thin.

  • Giants' Danny Shelton: Avoids injury designation

    Shelton (pectoral) doesn't have an injury designation for Monday's game against the Chiefs.

    Shelton missed last week's win over the Panthers after suffering the pectoral injury Week 6, but he'll retake the field Monday for the Giants. The 28-year-old has 16 tackles (four solo) and a half-sack in six games this season.

  • Giants' Danny Shelton: Inactive as expected

    Shelton (pectoral) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Shelton was listed as doubtful ahead of Sunday's matchup despite logging three limited practices throughout the week. It will be his first absence of the season, with David Moa likely to see some increased work as a result.

  • Giants' Danny Shelton: Listed as doubtful for Week 7

    Shelton (pectoral) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Panthers, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Shelton suffered the injury against the Rams in Week 6 and appears to have avoided a major injury, but he will likely be sidelined for at least one game. If the 28-year-old defensive tackle does miss Week 7, Raymond Johnson may get to see the first snaps of his career.

  • Giants' Danny Shelton: Dealing with strain

    Shelton is considered day-to-day with a pectoral strain after leaving Sunday's loss to the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Shelton exited Sunday's contest late in the blowout loss, but it doesn't appear as though he's dealing with a major injury. The Giants are optimistic that he avoided a tear, so it's possible that he could be back on the field for the Week 7 matchup against the Panthers.

  • Giants' Danny Shelton: Leaves early Sunday

    Shelton left Sunday's game early against the Rams with a pectoral inury, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Shelton left late in the game, so his absence creates little impact for now. He is the primary man behind Austin Johnson in the Giants' 3-4 defense, though, so any extended time missed would certainly leave the depth chart thin. Shelton will try to return in Week 7 against the Panthers.

  • Giants' Danny Shelton: Inks deal with Big Blue

    Shelton (triceps) is signing a one-year contract with the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The 2015 first-round pick is a discount replacement for Dalvin Tomlinson, who cashed in with a two-year, $21 million contract from Minnesota after making 64 consecutive starts for the Giants. Shelton hasn't been quite as reliable, but he did have a 59-tackle campaign in Cleveland (2016) and a year with 61 tackles and three sacks for New England (2019). Shelton then dipped to 37 tackles and one sack in his 12 games (all starts) for the Lions last season, missing Weeks 13-16 with a knee injury before hurting his pectoral Week 17. The Lions released Shelton in mid-March with a failed physical designation, so he still may be rehabbing from the pec issue.

  • Danny Shelton: Cut by Lions

    The Lions released Shelton (triceps) with a failed physical designation Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Shelton suffered a triceps injury in the 2020 season finale, and he apparently has yet to fully recover from the injury. The 2015 first-round pick is now a free agent after recording 37 tackles (15 solo), a sack and a pass breakup over 12 games last year.

  • Lions' Danny Shelton: Leaves with triceps injury

    Shelton (triceps) will not return to Sunday's game against the Vikings, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Shelton had one solo tackle before being forced out of Sunday's regular-season finale. Through 11 appearances in 2020, Shelton notched 37 tackles (15 solo), one sack and one defended pass.

  • Lions' Danny Shelton: Green light for Sunday's game

    Shelton (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

    Shelton was activated from injured reserve Saturday, and he'll return to the lineup for the first time since Week 12. The sixth-year defensive tackle may not start at defensive tackle. He should handle a modest workload regardless.

  • Lions' Danny Shelton: Questionable following activation

    Shelton (knee) has been activated from IR and is questionable for Sunday's clash against Minnesota.

    Shelton was injured during a Week 12 loss to Houston and was subsequently placed on injured reserve. Though Detroit has little to play for in the season finale, Shelton's return would be a notable boost to a defense that ranks last in the league in points allowed this season.
