Sheppard (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sheppard was only able to manage one limited practice this week, which doesn't look like it will be enough to allow him to play Sunday. He's one of three Giants linebackers on the Week 11 injury report, with B.J. Goodson (ankle) ruled out and Devon Kennard (quadriceps) listed as questionable.

Sheppard is questionable to return with a groin injury, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The extent of injury is relatively unknown at this point. In the meantime, Curtis Grant should witness a spike in usage on special teams.

Sheppard re-signed with the Giants on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sheppard played all 16 games (11 starts) with the Giants last season racking up 50 tackles (30 solo) and two pass defensed. New York needed to bolster their linebacking corps after placing Nigel Harris (ribs) on injured reserve earlier in the day. Since he is already somewhat familiar with the defensive schemes, there's a good chance Sheppard receives defensive reps Sunday against the 49ers.

Sheppard was cut by the Bears on Friday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sheppard signed with the Bears a little under two weeks ago and evidently failed to impress in his limited time. He's now eligible to sign with another team.

Sheppard signed with the Bears on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Sheppard most recently spent his sixth NFL season with the Giants, where he started 11 games and recorded 50 tackles. He had his best professional year in 2015 when he recorded 105 tackles for the Dolphins. He'll now fight for a spot among Chicago's linebacking core on their final roster.

Sheppard has signed with the Giants, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old, who racked up 105 tackles in 16 games for the Dolphins last season, bolsters the Giants' depth at linebacker, but it remains to be seen if his role in the New York defense will allow him to approach triple-digit tackles again in 2016.

Sheppard finished the 2015 season with 105 tackles.

EDGE Analysis

Very few pundits would've predicted a season with triple digit tackle numbers for Sheppard during training camp but injuries and subpar play allowed him to shine. Unfortunately though big plays were missing from his resume as he didn't record a sack or turnover. He won't be guaranteed a starting job next season as the Dolphins will likely bring in competition at the linebacker spot via free agency and/or the draft.

Sheppard will sign with the Dolphins, The Palm Beach Post reports.

Sheppard's signing comes in wake of linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hip) being placed on season-ending injured reserve. Now entering his fourth season, Sheppard struggled after being traded to the Colts ahead of last year, as he posted just 46 tackles (20 solo) in 15 games. With Indianapolis opting to release Sheppard just over a week ago, he'll now head to Miami and hold a decent chance of starting at linebacker.

Sheppard was wearing a walking boot on his lower left leg Tuesday after he was hurt in a collision in Monday's practice, the Indianapolis Star reports.

It's not clear if this is a serious injury, but he's unlikely to play in Thursday's first preseason game.
