After missing the Week 2 contest against Buffalo, Sterling Shepard has been cleared of concussion protocol and will start on Sunday against Tampa Bay.

In Week 1, Shepard had 6 receptions in 7 targets, racking up 42 total yards before suffering a concussion later in the game. Needless to say, having Shepard back at the WR slot gives Daniel Jones another go-to target in his first NFL start this weekend.

Sterling took over the No. 1 WR slot after Odell was traded to Cleveland in the offseason. Shepard had 66 receptions and 872 yards last season for New York, scoring just 4 TDs in his 16 games played.

Shepard will look to improve his stat-line this season as he takes over the No. 1 spot.
