Giants WR Shepard (concussion) practices for second straight day


New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard was a full participant in practice on Thursday for a second straight day, a step toward returning to game action.

Shepard suffered a concussion in a Week 5 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 6 and has been sidelined since. He has yet to clear the concussion protocol but could before Monday night's home game against the Dallas Cowboys.

He has had two concussions this season, missing Week 2's loss to the Buffalo Bills after suffering a head injury in the season opener in Dallas.

Rookie cornerback/kick returner Corey Ballentine, also in the concussion protocol, was a full participant in practice on Thursday. His status for Monday's game remains uncertain.
