Giants WR Sterling Shepard Expected to Be Okay After Ankle Injury

Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard is expected to be “in the clear” after suffering an ankle injury during Wednesday’s practice, a source told Jordan Raanan of ESPN on Friday.

Shepard, who was carted off the practice field, had an MRI on Thursday. Coach Ben McAdoo, who initially described the injury as “a sprained ankle, a basketball-type ankle,” said the MRI was “due diligence.”

The injury occurred while running a route during a non-contact drill. Shepard rolled the ankle, according to McAdoo, and wasn’t able to put any pressure on the affected area. He was taken off the field on a cart.

The initial diagnosis was of a sprained ankle. But the Giants wanted to wait until the swelling went down for the final verdict. Shepard was in a boot following the injury and underwent the MRI on Thursday morning.
