In the Giants’ defeat to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night, the receiving group suffered. According to head coach Brian Daboll, Sterling Shepard tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during the game and will miss the remainder of the 2022 campaign.
He is a fantastic person, Daboll stated. “I am really sorry for him.” Late in the game on Monday night, Shepard fell on the ground holding his knee, and he was carried off the field. The veteran wideout’s original worries about suffering a major injury after the non-contact play have not only been realized, but they also mark the continuation of a terrifying stretch.
The ruptured Achilles that ended the 29-year-2021 old’s season after seven games required rehabilitation throughout the previous year. Shepard altered his contract during that period of rehabilitation to stay with the team, becoming the Giant with the longest contract as of the 2022 season. Shepard returned to the field and scored one touchdown in three games.
