New York Giants fans have grown accustomed to this, but it is still never easy looking at the injury report. During the opening preseason game against the Miami Dolphins, the first two rookie selections of the Giants have had their nights ended early with injuris.
Per reports, Eli Apple is getting his left "outside knee" checked out by the team's medical staff. He was shown walking on his own towards the locker room. As for now, there is little concern that this is an ACL or MCL injury.
Weird "outside of knee" announcement on Apple. But hey, you can rule out the ACL or MCL.— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) August 13, 2016
Sterling Shepard had himself quite the night, especially with an impressive diving catch. He left the game early with a groin issue. However, this is not expected to be serious as he is not even getting it treated for now.
Pretty confident in saying that Sterling Shepard is fine. He's still on the bench not even getting treatment. Precautionary. #Giants— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) August 13, 2016
UPDATE: Both Apple and Shepard were seen on the sideline still in uniform during the second half, which has to be a good sign.
UPDATE 10:13 p.m.: The Giants announce Apple's injury as a "strained lower leg."
UPDATE 10:18 p.m.: The Giants announced that wide receiver Geremy Davis is out with a hamstring injury.
