According to Matt Lombardo of NJ.com, New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard is expected to play this week vs the Washington Redskins.
Shepard injured his ribs in Sunday’s game vs the Chicago Bears.
He had an X-Ray done during the game but it didn’t reveal any fracture or substantial injury.
Lombardo adds that it seems like Shepard will just have to deal with the pain moving forward.
Shepard is on pace for a career-high in both receptions and yards.
