Giants WR Sterling Shepard will not be cleared from concussion protocol in time to play in Week 7 against the Cardinals, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed Friday.
Shepard has been participating in individual drills at practice this week but has been doing so in a non-contact jersey.
Vacchiano reported after Shepard suffered his second concussion of the season in Week 5 against the Vikings that he would be out "a while" and there is a chance that he will also miss Week 8 against the Lions in Detroit.
After suffering his first concussion of the season during Week 1 against the Cowboys, Shepard missed Week 2 against the Bills but returned to action in Week 3.
While Shepard will remain out, the Giants seem all but certain to get back Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram.
Engram's return should help the passing game immensely, with Golden Tate and Darius Slayton the other two main options.
While Shepard remains in concussion protocol, a pair of Giants players have been cleared from it. RB Wayne Gallman and DL Olsen Pierre will be available on Sunday.
