roster move. Wonder if Shep goes to IR?
This won't be popular

But they may IR Sheppard. 2 concussions is serious stuff. He really is not going to be ready to go for a while.
But Stupar is most likely slot

He is not going to be here much longer.

others have said, I bet it's Shep to IR.
Shep (If put on IR) would still be able to return

at the end of the season. Who knows how the season shakes out with the rest of the NFC East not running away with the division. If we are still in the mix, then Shep could be brought back.
Agree Likely Move is " I'm in a Stupor"...

Unless Shep is very serious he can just sit on Sundays until he's ready
two back to back concussions  
japanhead : 10/13/2019 8:34 pm : link
is the definition of "very serious." there's a leaguewide crisis with head injuries rn. you hadn't heard?

Nate Subpar.
I remember reading  
mrvax : 10/13/2019 9:10 pm : link
some medical articles on concussions a couple of years ago. The most likely and maybe worse time for a concussion is soon after you suffer the first one.

I'd love Shepard to return for my enjoyment but he needs to really think this through. He had to know all good NY Giant receivers have a very short career.

Bye Stupar(I hope)

The guy brings very little to an NFL roster imo.
We  
AcidTest : 10/13/2019 9:29 pm : link
have 10 LBs. Even for a 3-4 team, do we really need that many?
Not what I want to read

Oh well, I have to remind myself this season is just a building block.

As for Shepherd, I donít think we should resign him to a big contract. The dude unfortunately gets hurt too often. We also have Tate to play the slot. Obviously we need another WR for next year:

Tate
Slayton
?
Engram - TE

We resigned Shepard to a 4 year $41M contract this year.
I was wondering

He brings the ability to dive at somebody's ankles as they run past him for a big gain.

Yeah, he tweeted he thought Shep was done for the year.
