Sterling Shepard’s thumb is completely healthy for Week 1

Giants top receiver Sterling Shepard scrolled through his smartphone Monday with the left thumb he fractured on the first day of training camp.

“I don’t even feel it anymore,” said Shepard, who confirmed he is full go for Sunday’s season opener at the rival Dallas Cowboys.

The Giants will need Shepard at his best, especially with Golden Tate suspended the first four games of the regular season for violating the substance abuse policy.

Rookie wide receiver Darius Slayton (hamstring) also appeared to be off to the side not practicing in Monday’s early portion, and tight end Garrett Dickerson (quad) appeared limited.

On a side note, wideout Corey Coleman is off crutches and ahead of his schedule in his rehabilitation from a torn ACL in his left knee sustained in the first practice of camp.

Coleman is out for the season, but he was in high spirits and optimistic on Monday about his progress, and said he was so determined to be back, he began his rehab immediately following his late July surgery.
