Bears tight end Adam Shaheen was carted off early in Saturday’s preseason game in Denver. The team announced an ankle injury for the second-year player Devin McCourty Jersey , and multiple reports said he appeared to be in a great deal of pain.
The 2017 second-round pick caught a short pass from quarterback Mitchell Trubisky for a 5-yard gain before being tackled by Isaac Yiadom. The cornerback drew a 15-yard penalty for lowering his head to initiate contact, though that didn’t appear to factor into the injury.
Shaheen’s right ankle appeared to buckle when he planted.
He limped off before team medical personnel called for a cart to take Shaheen to the locker room.
Shaheen played in 13 games last season, with seven starts, and made 12 catches for 127 yards and three touchdowns.
NEW YORK GIANTS (3-13)
OPEN CAMP: July 25, Quest Diagnostics Training Center, East Rutherford, New Jersey.
LAST YEAR: 2017 was fiasco one year after making playoffs. Opened season with five straight losses. Injuries to WR Odell Beckham Jr. and others, poor play Tevin Coleman Jersey , suspensions and disharmony lowlighted season. It was so bad second-year coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese were fired in early December after QB Eli Manning was benched. Team could not win close ones it won previous season in ending four-year playoff drought.
IMPORTANT ADDITIONS : GM Dave Gettleman, coach Pat Shurmur, defensive coordinator James Bettcher (and 3-4 defense), No. 2 overall draft pick RB Saquon Barkley, OT Nate Solder, LB Alex Ogletree, LB Kareem Martin, G Will Hernandez Kendall Fuller Jersey , and P Riley Dixon.
IMPORTANT LOSSES: DE Jason Pierre-Paul, WR Brandon Marshall, LB Jonathan Casillas, LB Devon Kennard, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, G Justin Pugh, C Weston Richburg, RB Shane Vereen Takkarist McKinley Jersey , P Brad Wing.
CAMP NEEDS: After winning three games, much needs to be fixed. All eyes will be on Barkley, who can be game breaker, and Beckham, who is coming off broken ankle. Giants believe 37-year-old Manning still has gas in tank and can run Shurmur’s offense, which was very successful in Minnesota. Will additions of Solder and Hernandez and switch of Ereck Flowers to RT fix bad O-line? Defense has talent with DE Olivier Vernon, S Landon Collins, DT Damon ”Snacks” Harrison Jarran Reed Jersey , LBs Martin and Ogletree, and CB Janoris Jenkins. Will 3-4 bring out the best?
EXPECTATIONS: Teams generally improve with new coaching staff. That said, Giants have long way to go. Much depends on how quickly they pick up new systems. Staying healthy and happy this year will help. If Barkley lives up to expectations, Beckham bounces back, and defense clicks, Giants can make playoffs. It’s long shot, but don’t forget this franchise won 11 games in 2016.
