Shepard (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Cowboys, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Shepard suffered the ankle injury Week 15 against the Titans and will finish 2018 by missing the final two games of the season. The 28-year-old caught 10 of 19 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games for the Giants this season.
Shepard (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Shepard has yet to practice since hurting his ankle Week 15, missing out on additional opportunities to impress the Giants brass with Odell Beckham (quadriceps) sidelined. In the first two games sans Beckham, though, Shepard hauled in just three of his eight targets for 39 yards and one touchdown, so he wasn't exactly efficient with looks prior to the injury. Friday's practice report will impart whether Shepard has a chance to return Sunday against the Cowboys.
Shepard (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.
Shepard was held out of Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Colts and now seems to be in danger of missing the season finale against Dallas. With Odell Beckham (quadriceps) also missing practice and Sterling Shepard (hip) a limited participant, the Giants should have some opportunities available for Bennie Fowler, Cody Latimer and Corey Coleman. It was Fowler who led the way in terms of playing time (54 snaps) last week, but he only caught one of three targets for 26 yards.
Shepard (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.
Shepard was unable to practice all week because of his injury, and he will not play in Week 16 as a result. Shepard was on the field for over 50 percent of the Giants' offensive plays last week, so his absence will open up some opportunities for his fellow receivers. Those snaps figure to be allocated in some fashion to Bennie Fowler, the returning Cody Latimer, Corey Coleman, and Jawill Davis.
Shepard (ankle) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Shepard was in attendance for the session, but was relegated to working out on the side on a stationary bike. The wideout's back-to-back absences from practice to begin the week have him trending in the wrong direction heading into Sunday's game in Indianapolis. Odell Beckham (quadriceps) was also a spectator for Thursday's practice and may be in line for a third consecutive absence this weekend, potentially leaving the Giants shorthanded at receiver.
