Giants WR Sterling Shepard Is Out for Season With Torn ACL

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard will miss the remainder of the 2022 NFL season due to a torn ACL, head coach Brian Daboll announced during a press conference.

Shepard went down with a non-contact injury during the final minutes of the 23-16 loss to the division-rival Dallas Cowboys and had initial tests after the game.

Shepard is coming off an Achilles injury that took place midway through the 2021 season and had recorded 13 receptions for 154 yards and a touchdown in three games during the 2022 season.

The former Oklahoma standout was selected by the Giants at No. 40 overall in the second-round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Shepard currently has 362 career receptions for 4,038 yards and 22  touchdowns, as well as 23 rushing attempts for 180 yards and one touchdown during his seven-year NFL career.
