Giants' Sterling Shepard: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Shepard didn't practice all week and never seemed especially likely to play. Injuries to Odell Beckham (ankle) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) left the 2016 second-round pick with an opportunity to front the Giants' receiving corps, but his own injury issues limited Shepard to 11 appearances. Shepard finishes with an efficient stat line of 59 catches for 731 yards and two touchdowns on 84 targets -- good for a 8.7 YPT and 70 percent catch rate -- albeit with 57 percent of his yardage occurring in three games. Shepard was clearly a better player this season than in his rookie campaign, but he nonetheless figures to serve as only the second or third option in the passing game next year. Whoever ends up playing quarterback for the team will have the privilege of throwing to Shepard, Evan Engram (ribs), Beckham and Marshall.

Giants' Sterling Shepard: Not practicing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard (neck) did not take part in Friday's practice, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Shepard has not practiced at all this week as a result of the neck injury he suffered in Week 16, so his chances of playing in Week 17 are not good. The Giants will reveal Shepard's official status for their regular-season finale when Friday's practice comes to a close.

Giants' Sterling Shepard: No practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard (neck) didn't participate in practice Thursday.

Shepard was contained to an elliptical bike for the second straight session, which wasn't nearly enough activity to warrant an elevation to limited participant. If he achieves such standing Friday, at the very least, he'll up his odds to suit up Sunday versus the Redskins.

Giants' Sterling Shepard: Does elliptical work Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard (neck) didn't take part in team drills during the media-access portion of Thursday's practice and was instead working out on a bike, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

Shepard did the same activity during Wednesday's practice and was listed as a non-participant, so it looks like he'll be in line for the same designation again Thursday. Back-to-back absences to begin the practice week don't portend well for Shepard's availability for the season finale against the Redskins, but the wideout's odds of suiting up Sunday would improve if he's able to put forth a limited or full showing at Friday's session.

Giants' Sterling Shepard: Not taking part in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard (neck) took part in stretching and worked out on a stationary bike Wednesday, but wasn't taking part in drills during the portion of practice made available to the media, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

It's thus expected that Shepard will be listed as a non-participant in the Giants' first practice of the week, which doesn't inspire much confidence about his availability for the season finale Sunday against the Redskins. Shepard was removed from the 23-0 loss to the Cardinals in Week 16 with the injury and has also been hampered by a sprained ankle, a hamstring issue and an illness this season, so it wouldn't be surprising if the 2-13 Giants decided to hold their top wide receiver out in the finale with little at stake.
