Today's Reminder That Training Camp Sucks: Sterling Shepard Went Down With An Apparent Non-Contact Leg Injury And Was Carted Off The Field

I’m not a doctor or anything, but I’m going to say nothing about those tweets are good. A non-contact leg injury, tears, and getting carted off is almost the nightmare injury Bingo. All you need is the rest of the Giants crying or puking like the Vikings did with Teddy Bridgewater’s injury and we could sound the alarms about Sterling’s leg. Who am I kidding, Giants Twitter is blaring the alarms right now regardless. Like I said last week, almost nothing good comes out of training camp and the preseason. Yeah you can have an undrafted rookie like Victor Cruz come out of nowhere and become a star. But the rest of the time, everyone is holding their breath every time a player goes down or gets carted off. I can’t believe I unveiled my new Super Spinner during the landmine-filled month that is training camp. I AM SUCH AN IDIOT!!!

Obviously Ts and Ps to Sterling Shepard. We never got to see ODB and Cruz play together when they were at the height of their powers. Hopefully this is just a real big scare because when Shepard is healthy, the Giants have the best receiving corps in football. Since I always try to be a glass half full guys with injuries to my team, I am going to keep telling myself that Shepard is fine until team doctors tell me otherwise. Like seeing they were looking at Shepard’s ankle instead of his knee makes me think he’s fine, like an ankle injury can’t be devastating or something.

Like when they try to reteach Peter how to fly in Hook, we need all the happy thoughts we can get right now. In the meantime, lets pack up the rest of the starters in bubble wrap, turn off injuries, simulate the fuck out of the preseason, and get to the real games. We’re onto Dallas.

UPDATE: FUUUUUUUCK

UPDATE 2: MOTHER NATURE COME OUT OF NOWHERE TO STOP THE BLEEDING!!! I LOVE THAT BEAUTIFUL BANSHEE, EVEN IF IT DIDN’T GET NICE OUT THIS YEAR UNTIL AFTER MEMORIAL DAY!!!
