New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard will be out for the immediate future with a fractured thumb, the team announced Thursday.

The Giants tweeted that Shepard “will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis” following the injury, which occurred Thursday during training camp practice.

Shepard signed a four-year, $41 million extension with the Giants this offseason and is expected to become even more of a primary weapon on offense now that Odell Beckham Jr. is in Cleveland.

Last season, Shepard caught 66 passes for 872 yards and four touchdowns for the Giants.
