On Friday, Big Blue ruled out wide receiver Sterling Shepard, running back Paul Perkins, defensive lineman Olivier Vernon, center Weston Richburg, linebacker Jonathan Casillas and backup defensive end Romeo Okwara. Safety Landon Collins (ankle) is listed as questionable. (Also, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is still suspended indefinitely.)
With Shepard out, and Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall on injured reserve, the Giants will be without 89 percent of their receptions (65 of 73), 88 percent of their receiving yards (719 of 821), and 80 percent of their touchdowns (4 of 5) by wide receivers this season, per NFL Research.
