Giants' Russell Shepard: Practicing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard (finger) participated in Sunday's practice, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

It's unclear whether Shepard participated in a full capacity just two days after dislocating his finger, but the fact that he was out on the practice field is a great sign for the wideout. Even if he was limited, the injury likely isn't anything too serious for Shepard moving forward.

Giants' Russell Shepard: Nursing dislocated finger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard is dealing with a dislocated finger, The Athletic's Dan Duggan reports.

The finger injury that forced Shepard to leave Friday's preseason win over the Lions has officially been diagnosed as a dislocation, which shouldn't ultimately keep him sidelined for long. He'll hope to be ready in time for next Friday's preseason contest against the Jets as he battles for a depth role at wide receiver behind Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard and Cody Latimer.

Giants' Russell Shepard: Leaves with finger injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard left Friday's preseason game against the Lions with a finger injury, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Before his injury, Shepard notched a 40-yard catch. The 27-year-old is fighting for roster positioning, but it likely won't be significant enough for fantasy relevance -- he's notched a combined 40 receptions and three touchdowns in the last two seasons.

Giants' Russell Shepard: Heading to New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard signed a contract with the Giants on Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Shepard was recently granted his release from the Panthers and now reunites with general manager Dave Gettleman, who was the GM in Carolina that signed Shepard to a three-year, $10 million contract in March of 2017. Unlikely to be counted on to for a significant offensive role, Shepard has only averaged 20 receptions over the past two seasons after totaling seven catches in his first three seasons combined. However, the LSU product is considered one of the better gunners on special teams leaguewide and will serve the Giants well in that capacity.

Russell Shepard: Requests release from Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard will be released by the Panthers on Monday, Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Shepard signed a three-year, $10 million contract with the Panthers last year, but after refusing to take a pay cut, he requested to be released. As soon as the transaction becomes official, Shepard will be an unrestricted free agent free to sign on with another team. Releasing Shepard, who caught just 17 passes for 202 yards and one touchdown last season, will save the team around $2.1 million in cap space.
