The Sport Effect

Sterling Shepard to miss time, Saquon Barkley & Kenny Golladay could play Sunday

The harm bug is still alive and perfectly in East Rutherford.

It does not feel the Giants‘ health and fitness-linked challenges will ever conclusion.

In accordance to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, large receiver Sterling Shepard is expected to skip time after struggling a quad strain against the Chiefs. Shepard exited the 20-17 loss in the next quarter and did not return.

It is unclear accurately how significantly time Shepard will sit out because of to this problem, but as Raanan factors out, the future Week ten bye should really be beneficial for his recovery timetable.

Replacing Shepard

The Giants utilize substitution choices, but thanks to different injuries, not much too a lot of.

Darius Slayton and Kadarius Toney are the two key energetic receivers correct now but both is certainly susceptible to harm. Collin Johnson is also on the roster and so is Dante Pettis, but the latter exited Monday’s loss with a shoulder harm.

It is unclear if Kenny Golladay will enjoy this Sunday afternoon. Nonetheless, there’s in addition to some degree of an update on the veteran receiver…


As of correct now, there’s a likelihood Golladay and working back Saquon Barkley return to the sport subject against the Raiders this Sunday.

Barkley (ankle) and Golladay (knee) sustained their respective injuries in the Week 5 loss to Dallas and have skipped each of the final 3 game titles. Bear in mind, this is a working back the Giants drafted at No. two overall and a receiver they are shelling out $18 million per year — not acquiring both offered is a detriment.

Returning the pair of weapons against Las Vegas would be critical for Huge Blue.
