The Giants wide receiving corps has taken its fair share of losses early this season, and unfortunately it continued this past week with Sterling Shepard out against the Patriots as he dealt with his second concussion already this season. 

Shepard's status for Week 7 is also up in the air, so the Giants are bringing back a familiar face to fill what could be a void this Sunday. 

Bennie Fowler has re-signed with the Giants, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed. Releasing Nate Stupar was the corresponding move to place Fowler on the 53-man roster.

Sterling Shepard is out for the Giants' game in New England on Thursday night, and it seems like he'll probably miss the game against the Arizona Cardinals 10 days later, too. A source said that he is likely to be out a while, given his recent history of concussions.

That means the Giants will have to replace him for at least the next few weeks.

Now, Giants coach Pat Shurmur wouldn't rule out going with the four healthy receivers on the roster -- Golden Tate, Cody Latimer, rookie Darius Slayton and special teamer Cody Core -- at least for the near future. Eventually, though, they may need more depth, especially if Shepard's absence extends into November.

Giants fall to 2-3 00:01:22
Pat Shurmur and Daniel Jones discuss the Giants inability to take advantage of opportunities throughout their loss to the Vikings

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - After a wonderful first two games as the starting quarterback of the Giants, Daniel Jones got a taste of what Eli Manning had to endure over most of the previous six years:

Life as a quarterback on a bad team.

There was pretty much nothing Jones could do with a depleted rushing attack behind him, a struggling offensive line in front of him, and a porous defense on the other side - all things that should feel very, very familiar to his current backup. He was 21 of 38 for 182 yards, which isn't exactly good, but also was about what was expected considering he was making his third NFL start and was facing the NFL's sixth-ranked defense (and maybe the league's best secondary).

Darius Slayton/Daniel Jones (Kim Klement)
Darius Slayton/Daniel Jones (Kim Klement)

When the Giants drafted WR Darius Slayton in the fifth round of this year's NFL Draft, the Auburn product knew he was going to head into rookie minicamp with the team's first-round pick in QB Daniel Jones

But, like the rest of us, Slayton wasn't really sure what to think about him. Talking at length with TMZ Sports, Slayton admitted that he was skeptical of Jones' abilities when they got on the Giants practice field for the first time. 

That is until he started to sling the pigskin...
