He’ll have an MRI today, but that’s an ailment that generally causes a WR to miss some time, Rapoport went on to say. Looks like Slayton and Tate could be the Giants top two wideouts. The Giants are also dealing with the loss of RB Saquon Barkley.
Shepard got hurt late in the first half, limping to the sideline and reaching at his left foot before limping to the locker room, per Leonard. After attempting to run a route on the Giants' first play of the third quarter, Shepard again made a visit to the locker room, and the team ruled him out a short time later. The Giants would turn to Slayton, Tate, Ratley and Board to handle WR reps if Shepard has to miss any time.

Giants WR Golden Tate (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 2. Tate might be able to return this week but he's not startable against the Bears.
Giants WR Golden Tate is questionable to play Sunday with a hamstring injury, according to Art Stapleton of The Record. Tate missed Week 1 with the same injury.
Tate has a juicy matchup in the slot against the Bears...if he plays. His absence would mean Sterling Shepard would slide inside to face CB Buster Skrine. A healthy Tate would give the Giants a formidable trio, but Tate is on the wrong side of 30 and continues to rack up soft tissue injuries.
