What happened to
The New York Giants lost a close game 23-16 to the Dallas Cowboys in gut-wrenching fashion, but the loss of Sterling Shepard to an innocuous injury will sting the franchise even more.
With 1:15 left on the game clock in the fourth quarterback, Giants quarterback Daniel Jones dropped back and fired a pass towards wide receiver David Sills, who slipped while cutting inside on his route, allowing Trevon Diggs to intercept the ball.
The Cowboys cornerback made no mistake in hauling in the ball before sliding down and effectively confirming his team’s victory.
On the opposite end of the field, Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard was running a go route but slowed down after Diggs picked off Jones’ pass.
But while jogging down the field, the wide receiver felt a snap in his knee, immediately hit the ground, and asked for medical assistance.
There were no Cowboys defenders in his vicinity, and Shepard was jogging at a leisurely pace when he suffered the injury.
The wide receiver was carted off the field before the Cowboys lined up in victory formation and kneeled twice to end the game.
Former Giants quarterback Eli Manning and his brother Peyton watched Shepard’s injury unfold on ManningCast and were left speechless by the incident.
Sterling shepard injury update
Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard had to be carted off the field after the team’s final offensive snap in Monday night’s loss to the Cowboys, and afterward multiple Giants indicated the indication is that Shepard will miss the rest of the season.
Giants coach Brian Daboll said it’s particularly hard to see with Shepard because of how hard Shepard worked to come back from the torn Achilles that ended his 2021 season.
“It’s tough. It’s a tough sport,” Daboll said, via ESPN. “Guys work their butts off to get back from injuries.
This is something, if he’s out for the whole season, which we’ll probably know [Tuesday] morning . . . you hurt for those guys because you watch them in the rehab room, you watch them in the offseason. It’s just a shame.”
But Giants quarterback Daniel Jones seemed devastated after the game by Shepard’s injury.
“Hate to see that for him,” Jones said. “No one deserves that, but especially not him. He works his tail off and means a ton for this team, for all of us.”
“It’s just real tough to see that, for sure,” quarterback Daniel Jones said. “He’s a guy that works so hard, he’s battling back from an injury last year. I feel for him as a teammate, as a close friend, and It’s tough to see.”
He suffered a torn Achilles tendon late last season but made a speedy recovery to be ready for this year. In three games this season, Shepard has totaled 13 catches for 154 yards and a touchdown.
