Report: Danny Shelton day-to-day with pectoral strain

From the Raiders rallying together to the Cardinals staying perfect in Cleveland to Jonathan Taylor's dominant performance, Mike Florio and Mike Golic pick who they think made the strongest statements in Week 6.

The Giants got crushed by the Rams on Sunday but it looks like one of their defensive contributors has avoided a major injury.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, defensive lineman Danny Shelton has a pectoral strain and is considered day-to-day.

The concern with a pectoral injury is usually that it’s torn, which is then a season-ending injury. But per Rapoport, the belief is that’s not the case for Shelton.

A former Browns first-round pick in 2015, Shelton signed with the Giants as a free agent in March. He’s been a rotational player for the club, playing 32 percent of New York’s defensive snaps. He’s registered 16 total tackles with a half-sack in six games this season.

The Giants will take on the Panthers in Week Seven.
