Giants' Kelvin Sheppard: Productive in return to Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 sessions, but still represents a step up from his single limited practice last week. The 29-year-old has played in only one game this season, but with B.J. Goodson (ankle) out, Calvin Munson (quadriceps) doubtful, and Jonathan Casillas (neck) questionable, there is some potential for Sheppard to see the field if he can suit up Thursday.

Giants' Kelvin Sheppard: Set to sit Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 in the midst of an injury plague in the Giants' linebacker unit, 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
