Cody Latimer questionable, so Giants could be short-handed at wide receiver

The New York Giants will be without wide receiver Sterling Shepard (concussion) on Sunday when they face the Buffalo Bills. Shepard, who sustained the concussion last week vs. the Dallas Cowboys, has been ruled out.

Also out for the Giants are:

WR Darius Slayton (hamstring)
TE Garrett Dickerson (quad)

Wide receiver Cody Latimer (calf) is questionable).

Obviously, with two receivers down on Sunday, Golden Tate suspended and Latimer questionable the Giants could be seriously short-handed at that position.

Veterans Bennie Fowler and Russell Shepard figure to be relied upon, as does T.J. Jones, who was re-signed as insurance this week. Cody Core, claimed off waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals a week ago, is also on the 53-man roster.

The Giants will likely have to only again rely heavily upon tight end Evan Engram in the passing game. Engram had career highs in catches (11), targets (14) and receiving yards (116) vs. the Cowboys.

Saquon Barkley was targeted six times against Dallas. Perhaps the Giants will look to incorporate him further into the passing game.
