Shepard’s ankle better
The left ankle that New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard rolled in a training camp practice earlier this week is on the mend. Shepard walked into a post-practice media session Friday and said his ankle is feeling pretty good. He said an MRI was negative and the final diagnosis was a rolled ankle and a bone bruise. The second-year wide receiver who was the team’s second-leading receiver as a rookie said he walked well on an underwater treadmill Friday. He had no timetable for getting back to practice. Shepard was hurt Wednesday when he planted his foot running a short pass route and the grass gave a bit, rolling his ankle roughly 90 degrees. The 23-year-old said he was initially worried because he felt the ankle pop and there was a good amount of pain.
