Giants' Sterling Shepard: Reportedly unlikely to play
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11/18/2017) Shepard is unlikely to play Sunday against Kansas City due to an illness, but he will be evaluated during pregame warmups, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Shepard was a full participant in practice all week, but was added to the injury report Saturday after coming down with the illness. Roger Lewis and Tavarres King would presumably benefit in targets should Shepard ultimately sit out, while Evan Engram could see even more looks at tight end.

Sims had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos due to a calf injury -- it was going to be his second straight missed contest. Instead, the Bengals opted to release the veteran in order to promote linebacker Hardy Nickerson to the active roster. Sims has recorded 19 tackles (six solo) and zero sacks through eight games this season.

The Bengals needed to add some depth to their linebacking corps with Kevin Minter (elbow) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Nickerson has played in seven games with the Bengals so far this season, but is used far more often on special teams than he is on defense.
