We're all pushing for you, Sterling Shepard. Although the veteran NY Giants wide receiver has missed a large chunk of the past two campaigns due to heartbreaking injuries, few players have meant more to this team and organization than No. 3.
Shepard is still recovering from his torn ACL, but he re-signed with the team on a one-year deal. People were thrilled to see that contract get done, as no one wanted his last memory in blue to be Shepard being carted off the field with his serious knee injury.
It goes without saying, but his incredible work ethic is on full display this offseason. Shepard took to Instagram to let his fans know what he's been up to and the wideout is looking fantastic in his late June training:

That's what the young kids call 'getting money' in a workout. Shepard is going full throttle here and he looks like a man on a mission to get himself back to 100 percent. When he tore his ACL in the Week 3 showdown vs. the Dallas Cowboys, people couldn't believe it.
Don't forget that the year before, Shepard suffered his torn Achillies - talk about terrible luck. Now, though, Shep is motivated to try and close out his playing days in East Rutherford on the right note. We've said it time and time again, but Shepard is incredibly easy to root for.
Last season, even though he couldn't play, he was right by his teammates showering them with love and support. He was hyping everyone up, especially late in the campaign. Now, all eyes will be on Shepard come Week 1 to see if he can make a splash for Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka.
Seven years ago, Victor Cruz scored in Week 1 of 2016 against the Cowboys, his first score since 2014, in a thrilling NY win. How sweet would it be to see Shepard post a similar kind of play against Dallas in primetime? Make it happen, Shep.
