Prior to New York Giants No. 1 receiver Sterling Shepard fracturing his thumb midway through the first training camp practice, it was thought that Corey Coleman and Cody Latimer were battling it out for the No. 3 spot on the team.
However, it has been revealed that Coleman tore his ACL as well, sending two promising pass catchers for the Giants to the sidelines. Sterling will likely return before the start of the regular season but Coleman will miss the entire 2019 season.
After making comments of breaking out, head coach Pat Shurmur must be disappointed:
â€œWe are going to see the best of [Coleman],â€Â head coach Pat Shurmur said. â€œHeâ€™s the first one to tell you when he came in the league, he had a lot to learn. Now heâ€™s got an opportunity to maybe be a front-line player.â€
