Giants WR Sterling Shepard suffers fractured thumb

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard suffered a fractured thumb at practice on Thursday and will be week-to-week.

Shepard was holding his left hand after catching a pass at practice, according to Giants coach Pat Shurmur. He went for X-rays that revealed the fracture.

The team later announced that Shepard would be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.

Shepard signed a four-year, $41 million extension with the Giants in April. He had 66 catches for 872 yards and 4 touchdowns last season. As a rookie in 2016, he had 65 catches for 683 yards and 8 touchdowns. He’ll be looked to as a key contributor with Odell Beckham Jr traded to Cleveland.
