Shep­ard’s an­kle bet­ter

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

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.
