EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – Second-year wide receiver Sterling Shepard had to leave New York Giants practice after rolling his left ankle.
Coach Ben McAdoo said after a training camp workout Wednesday that the injury was only a sprain. He said further evaluations were planned.
Shepard was hurt running a short route. McAdoo says Shepard set his foot and rolled the ankle.
The second-year receiver got up and hopped to the sideline, where he immediately fell to the grass in pain. After being examined by a trainer, he was taken off the field on a golf cart and did not return.
Shepard was the Giants’ second-leading receiver last season as a rookie. The second-round draft pick from Oklahoma had 65 catches for 683 yards and eight touchdowns playing mostly in the slot.
