Sterling Sheperd goes down with leg injury

Sterling Shepard (right leg) was carted off the practice field Wednesday.

Getting carted off is always an ominous sign, and Shepard was apparently in tears as he was leaving the field. It suggests Shepard knows he has a serious injury. Reporters didn't see what happened, but trainers appeared to be examining his right leg. Even after Brandon Marshall's addition, Shepard is still expected to have a big role in 2017. Darius Powe, Tavarres King, and Roger Lewis are next up. (source:rotoworld)

Heroes get remembered, but legends never die. Follow your heart, kid, and you'll never go wrong........

    also hearing he came down hard on it earlier in practice and then was later carted off

    Not good but this will help TE Evans Engram though so it's a big bump for him to get even more plays his way.

    Plenty of drama for a low ankle sprain

    Ankle sprain can be much worse then an actual break
  • G_MenG_Men Posts: 3,226
    They're saying a low ankle sprain. High ankle sprain can be worse and linger. They're already talking about him coming back sooner than later. Pretty sure he'll be back this year.

    Either way it's great news all around IMO. Another reason to try new things in the play book with other guys.

    Shepard seems to have escaped Wednesday's scary injury with a mere low sprain. He underwent an MRI and has already been cleared to walk around freely in tennis shoes. Shepard also called reports he was "crying" after suffering the injury "erroneous." "I'll be ready for Week 1, for sure," he said.
