NFL Week 3 - New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard is done for the year after tearing his ACL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Shepard was carted off the field during the Giants game Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys.  

"It hurt me when I saw him go down like that grabbing a knee," said Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay, per per Yahoo Sports. "It still hurts — almost choked me up a little bit to be totally honest. Just because I know — I've grown a relationship with him, and I know how much he's actually put in and how much he actually cares about it."

Shepard led the Giants in targets through three games this year. The former 2016 Giants draft pick has missed 14 games to injury since 2020, including ten games last year after tearing his Achilles. Shepard, 29, is in the final year of a four-year, $41 million contract with the Giants, according to OverTheCap.
