Sterling Shepard to continue in concussion protocol


The Giants announced today that wide receiver Sterling Shepard will not play in tomorrow night's game against Dallas.

"He practiced fully this week and was limited with no contact the two weeks before that," said coach Pat Shurmur. "He told (Sr. VP Medical Services/Head Athletic Trainer) Ronnie (Barnes) last evening (Saturday) he didn't feel well and was sent for examination and evaluation. When he arrived for work this morning, he still did not feel well. At that point, the decision was made to continue in the concussion protocol."

Shepard has missed the past three games after suffering a concussion vs. Minnesota on Oct. 6. He was cleared from the protocol on Friday afternoon after an appointment with the independent neurological consultant.

The concussion suffered in the Minnesota game was Shepard's second of the season. He originally complained of concussion symptoms following the season-opener in Dallas. He was then placed in the protocol and missed the following week's game against Buffalo. He was cleared from the protocol on Friday, Sept. 20 and returned to game action that Sunday at Tampa Bay.
