For the third time in six weeks, the Giants will be without their No. 1 wide receiver Sunday.

Sterling Shepard has been ruled out for Big Blue's Week 7 game against the Arizona Cardinals. Shepard has been in the NFL's concussion protocol since symptoms surfaced after the Giants' Oct. 6 loss to the Vikings.

It's the second concussion the fourth-year wide receiver has suffered this season. He also sustained one in the season opener at Dallas.

In four games this season, Shepard has caught 25 passes for 267 yards and one touchdown. 

Rookie cornerback Corey Ballentine has also been ruled with a concussion.

Running backs Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman, tight end Evan Engram and defensive lineman Olsen Pierre were all full participants in practice Friday and are expected to play Sunday.
