Giants’ Shepard, Jenkins, Solder clear concussion...


New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard has cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol and will play this Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

Cornerback Janoris Jenkins and Nate Solder were also cleared and are ready to go as the 2-8 Giants attempt to snap their six-game losing streak.

Shepard was recovering from his second concussion this season and had not played since the Giants’ Week 5 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Jenkins and Solder were both concussed ring the Giants’ Week 10 loss to the Jets and recovered over the bye week.

Shepard’s return gives rookie quarterback Daniel Jones his full complement of wide receivers this week, but as fate would have it, tight end Evan Engram (foot) will miss another game as will TE Rhett Ellison (concussion).

In his four starts this season, Shepard was targeted 34 times, catching 25 of them for 267 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed four times for 42 yards. It will only be the second game this season that Shepard and Golden Tate will be on the field simultaneously.
