The news comes after Shepherd sustained a dislocated left elbow during Sunday’s preseason game.
Bajakyan did not provide further details about the injury.
The Cardinals have been without Shepherd since Sept. 30, when he tore his left elbow ligament against the New Orleans Saints.
Shepherd has been with the team since then.
The injury occurred in a game against the Carolina Panthers in which he was targeted on two straight plays.
He returned to the game, but then left in the first quarter with the injury and did not play again.
He missed two games for the Cardinals this season.
In addition to the injury, Shepherd has had knee surgery.
He was in the process of returning from surgery on his left knee last month.
The 25-year-old Shepherd was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
He made his NFL debut with the St. Louis Rams in 2016.
