Giants WR Sterling Shepard leaves practice with leg injury

Giants Camp Football

"When someone goes down the next man stands up and we work as hard as we can behind the scenes to get the player healthy".

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard was carted off the practice field Wednesday after sustaining an ankle injury.

Last season was a breakout year for Shepard, putting up 683 receiving yards and eight touchdowns.

This is a big challenge for the receiver and team as they were going to ravage defenses with their new trio of wide-receivers.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport later confirmed that medical staff was looking at Shepard's left ankle.

Before taking the practice field Wednesday, Shepard took the time to wish his mother a happy birthday on Instagram.

Had the injury been a torn ACL, MCL or even a high ankle sprain, Shepard could have been lost for several weeks to a full year. His play was good enough to earn him All-Rookie honors.

The Giants are hopeful that he just rolled his ankle badly, according to NFL.com's Mike Garafolo.

Shepard figures to be a key player in the Giants' offense this season, lining up on the inside with Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall outside.

Either way, the Giants are hoping for the best outcome from this situation. Roger Lewis, Dwayne Harris and Tavarres King could see an increased role this season.
