Not looking good for Sunday
Shepard (quad) doesn't appear likely to play Sunday in Miami, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.
It sounds like he isn't doing much at Friday's practice after returning Thursday as a limited participant. With Kadarius Toney (oblique/quad) a step behind Shepard and QB Daniel Jones (neck) now expected to miss time, it'll likely be Mike Glennon throwing passes to Kenny Golladay, Darius Slayton and Evan Engram come Sunday. There's also an opportunity for depth players like John Ross (illness), Collin Johnson and Kyle Rudolph (ankle) to see extra snaps/targets, but in a difficult matchup against a hot defense with a backup QB at the helm.
