The New York Giants have announced that wide receiver Sterling Shepard is dealing with a concussion following Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Shepard was entered into the concussion protocol after reporting symptoms Monday morning, and some are reporting that he could be out “a while.”
Shepard initially left Sunday’s game after this play, taking a hard fall on an incomplete pass.
The game was paused for a medical time-out after a spotter flagged Shepard for an examination. He was taken into the medical tent and put through a concussion screening before being allowed to go back on the field and finish the game.
This is Shepard’s second concussion in the last month, having suffered one in the Giants’ week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. That game he was able to waive off trainers and evade medical personnel to return to the game. Having multiple concussions in a short period time is a concerning situation, and all involved should be concerned with Shepard’s future health.
Running back Wayne Gallman also exited Sunday’s game with a concussion and is in the concussion protocol. Meanwhile TE Evan Engram is dealing with a knee injury, which is also concerning given the Giants’ short week before playing the New England Patriots Thursday night.
