WR Sterling Shepard has entered the NFL’s concussion protocol.

On Monday, New York Giants coach Pat Schumer announced Shepard would undergo concussion related tests. The team didn’t disclose when Shepard suffered the apparent concussion after only missing a single snap against the Cowboys.

"Yeah, he's getting tested," Shurmur told ESPN.com. "He has to go through some of the testing. It appears is he might be in the protocol here. But each guy is different, as youu know. We'll just have to see how it goes here."

Shepard provided six catches for 42 yards in productivity in the season-opening 35-17 Giants loss to Dallas Cowboys.

Shurmer later told reporters in a conference call, “Shepard may be dealing with a concussion.” Shepard was then placed in the league's concussion protocol.

Shepard's status is unclear at best for Sunday's game against Buffalo Bills.
