EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey Just months after trading Odell Beckham Jr. to Cleveland, the New York Giants are being hit by injuries at wide receiver. The team announced today that receiver and kickoff returner Corey Coleman has torn an ACL, ending his season. And Sterling Shepard, who was to take over from Beckham as the top wideout, broke his left thumb reaching to catch a pass. Both injuries occurred Thursday in practice.
Coleman is a former Baylor star who has bounced around in his NFL career thus far. He was expected to challenge for a starting spot with the Giants this year. Unfortunately for Coleman, a torn ACL in the first practice of training camp means he won't get that opportunity.
