NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Shepard is dealing with migraines and is in legitimate danger of missing today's game against the Chiefs. "They're looking at all the possibilities.", McAdoo told reporters.
Lewis has to become a potential option for fantasy owners if Sterling Shepard is forced to miss Thanksgiving's game against the Redskins, but it wouldn't be an appealing matchup.
Shepard caught a career-high 11 passes for 142 yards in the loss to the 49ers but had not played since that game. This week, Apple participated fully as the Giants had walk-through practices on the short workweek and there did not seem to be any reason why Apple would not play against the Redskins.
The Giants (2-8) will start Jon Halapio at right guard in place of D.J. Fluker, who was inactive due to a right toe injury.
The Redskins (4-6) are also starting three backups on their offensive line, including at left tackle where Pro Bowler Trent Williams is inactive. Also out is linebacker B.J. Goodson, with an ankle injury.
