Giants activate Sterling Shepard off PUP, Jamison Crowder off NFI

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll was back in front of the media on Sunday morning after a day off on Saturday and revealed the team would be activating both Sterling Shepard and Jamison Crowder.

Daboll opened the presser by announcing that Shepard (knee) will be coming off the PUP list on Sunday and will be participating in drills. It will be his first time back on the filed since tearing his ACL last September.

Daboll also said they are activating 2023 free-agent signing, Crowder (calf), off the non-football injury list. He will also take part in practice.

Among other injury updates, defensive lineman Rakeem Nunez-Roches, who was involved in a car accident last week that landed him in the concussion protocol, will also be back to practice on Sunday.

The same will be the case for veteran wide receiver Cole Beasley (quad) and rookie defensive back Gervarrius Owens.

Linebacker Jihad Ward (undisclosed ailment) and backup tight end Ryan Jones (undisclosed) will sit out Sunday’s drills.

The first week of practice has many wondering if the team’s first-round pick, cornerback Deonte Banks out of Maryland, is ready to step right in and start this season. Daboll didn’t say either way but had some positive feed back on Banks.

The Giants traded up one spot in the first round in this year’s draft to select Banks, who they see as a physical player who can man-up with the bigger outside receivers in the league.
