Sterling Shepard back in protocol for second concussion of season
New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard is back in the concussion protocol.
The wide receiver, who already suffered one concussion this season, was placed in the protocol when he showed up to the team facilities on Monday displaying concussion symptoms. His status for Thursday’s game is in serious doubt.
Bad news for the Giants. Sterling Shepard is back in the concussion protocol, according to a source. He showed up today and displayed symptoms to the medical staff.
This means Shepard will out a while, given this is his second concussion this season.

This would be Shepard’s second concussion in a month. Alarmingly, a lapse in the on-field policy meant he actually played through the first one. Given the severity of these head injuries and the fact that this is Shepard’s second of the season, we might not see him play for a while.
The 26-year-old receiver has 25 catches for 267 yards and a touchdown in 2019.
