Sterling Shepard diagnosed with torn ACL

We break down the news that Sterling Shepard suffered a torn ACL in Week 3.

Tuesday update: Shepard has officially been diagnosed with a torn ACL, ending his 2022 season. This could mean more snaps for Kenny Golladay if the Giants don’t trade him but the more likely scenario is more volume for Richie James, David Sills and Kadarius Toney.

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard went down with a non-contact injury late in the Monday Night Football matchup with the Cowboys. The cart came out for him and he was taken back to the locker room and looked to be in relatively good spirits, but the injury very well could be significant.

Shepard just recently returned from an Achilles tear and was playing well. His injury history has allowed him to only play two full seasons out of his six previous seasons in the league and now it looks like he’ll face another lost season unless the appearance doesn’t fit the reality here. Hopefully it doesn’t.
