From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Oct 20): Shepard could return for Week 7 and probably would be a surer thing to if the game was on Sunday instead of Thursday. If not Week 7, then Week 8 will see Shepard's return. He could lead the Giants in receptions going forward, but it's tough to trust any part of this offense outside of Darius Slayton.
General News (Mon Oct 19): is "a little closer to returning" and his status for Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles could come down to a pregame workout, according to comments made by head coach Joe Judge on Monday, Oct. 19.
