Eli Manning Wants Sterling Shepard More Involved In Offense

Eli Manning didn’t throw any passes to Sterling Shepard on Sunday, but when he ran into the rookie receiver in the team’s facility on Tuesday he offered up something else.

An apology.

“I talked to him, I apologized for not getting him any catches,” Manning said. “We need to get him the ball, get him some catches. It’s just the way the day went on some things. But he’s done a good job all year and we have to do a good job of getting him involved in the offense.”

It was the first time all season that Shepard was shut out. In the two previous weeks he had caught the winning touchdowns. Shepard did have a 22-yard run in the fourth quarter to set up a score, but other than that was a non-factor. (Newsday)
