Giants Place WR Sterling Shepard & Three Others On Injured Lists

The New York Giants announced they have placed WR Sterling Shepard, C Nick Gates and OT Matt Peart on the PUP list to start training camp.

Giants OLB Azeez Ojulari was also placed on the non-football injury list. 

All four still count against the 90-man roster and are eligible to come off the list at any time. 

Shepard, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Giants back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $5.944 million rookie contract when he agreed to a four-year, $41 million extension that includes $21.3 million guaranteed. 

Shepard was set to make base salaries of $8.475 and $9.475 million in the final two years of his deal, however the two sides agreed to a reworked deal that makes him a free agent in 2023. 

In 2021, Shepard appeared in seven games for the Giants and caught 36 passes for 366 yards receiving and one touchdown.
