The New York Giants activated wide receiver Sterling Shepard from the physically unable to perform list on Wednesday.

Head coach Brian Daboll said Shepard will return to practice for the first time since tearing his left Achilles tendon in December.

“It will be good to have him out there,” Daboll said.

Shepard was injured during a Week 15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys and finished the season with 36 catches for 366 yards and one touchdown in seven games.

Shepard, 29, has recorded 349 receptions for 3,884 yards and 21 touchdowns in 72 games since being selected in the second round of the NFL draft in 2016.
