Giants WR Sterling Shepard Suffers Broken Thumb


The New York Giants announced Thursday that X-rays revealed that WR Sterling Shepard suffered a fractured thumb during practice.

According to the Giants, Shepard will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis moving forward.

The good news is that there is still time for Shepard to heal up before the start of the regular season.

Shepard, 26, 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 contract when he agreed to a four-year, $41 million extension that includes $21.3 million guaranteed this offseason. 

In 2018, Shepard appeared in all 16 games for the Giants and caught 66 passes for 872 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
