Update: Giants' Sterling Shepard done for season with torn Achilles tendon

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard tore his Achilles tendon in the team's Week 15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys and is done for the 2021 season.

What It Means:

Shepard's 2021 season started off on a high note with 16 catches on 19 targets for 207 yards and a score over just 2 games, but was derailed by a slew of unfortunate injuries. A torn Achilles tendon at this point in the season could affect the veteran's availability for the start of the 2022 season.

Shepard will finish the 2021 season with 34 catches for 351 yards and 1 touchdown. He'll look to rehab his Achilles during the offseason and will hopefully make a full recovery before the 2022 season.
