Giants Injury Report Brings Bad News on Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney
The New York Giants wide receiver room has been marred by injuries throughout the 2021 NFL season. Unfortunately, the team's latest injury report shows how that trend is continuing into Week 12.
The Giants' Thursday injury report shows that wideouts Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney are both dealing with quad injuries, which kept them out of practice, even John Ross was limited, also with a quad injury. Now, the status of the former two is up in the air for the team's Week 12 matchup against Philadelphia Eagles.
Sterling Shepard Injury Update
The quadriceps injury is nothing new for Shepard, who's been dealing with it since Nov. 1 — the last time he suited up for the Giants. He was hanging around practice earlier this week, so his return could be on the horizon.
When Shepard is healthy, he's clearly been New York's top wideout this season. He averaged 8.6 targets in the five games he played, converting that into 32 receptions for 324 yards and a touchdown. Only time will tell if he can pick up from where he left off when he's healthy.
Kadarius Toney Injury Update
Meanwhile, Toney's quad issue is just another on a long list of injuries he's dealt with in his rookie season. With him having missed practice on Wednesday too, his odds of playing this Sunday don't look that great.
Most of Toney's production this season came in Weeks 4 and 5 where he had 16 receptions for 267 yards. Since then, injuries have restricted him from reaching his true potential, recording 15 receptions and 111 yards in the subsequent four games.
Toney certainly has game-changing potential, however, he'll need to get back to full health before he can be that player for the Giants.
