Giants wide reciever Sterling Shepard has been cleared from concussion protocol following Friday's practice. The receiver suffered his second concussion of the season in Week 5 against Minnesota and hasn't played since.
Rookie cornerback Corey Ballentine missed the last two games with a concussion as well, but has also been cleared from the concussion protocol. SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports that both players could be in line to play when the Giants host the Cowboys Monday night at MetLife Stadium.
Both Shepard and Ballentine were listed as full participants in Friday's practice.
Shepard has 25 catches for 267 yards and a touchdown in his four games this season, having sat out Week 2 with his first concussion of the year.
If and when he does return to active duty, it will be the first time the Giants take the field with their full compliment of offensive weapons. Golden Tate missed the first four games of the season due to suspension, while Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram both missed time due to injury.
That should certainly help Daniel Jones, who has sputtered a bit with four consecutive losses following winning the first two starts of his NFL career.
"We've gotten plenty of reps together [as a foursome in practice], and Daniel is comfortable with everybody," Engram told NJ.com on Thursday.
