Giants WR Odell Beckham could miss season opener vs Cowboys

26 August 2017

Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. could miss Week 1 of the National Football League season after suffering an ankle injury on Monday night.

Beckham left Monday night's game against the Cleveland Browns after taking a hard hit to the left leg from Browns cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun.

You could probably have anticipated that New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo would get a lot of questions about Odell Beckham Jr. during his media availability on Tuesday. He could either spend the season on IR or he could reach an injury settlement with the Giants and try to land with another team. Odell Beckham has an ankle.

The Giants' offense is McAdoo's baby, so this is the last thing he wants and it's what he plans all offseason to avoid. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall suffered a shoulder injury of his own Monday, and receiver Sterling Shepard has fought through his own ankle sprain earlier in training camp. The coach added the team will wait to see how the 24-year-old who would like to be the NFL's highest paid player responds to treatment.

It is believed he travels between homes in London, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore. "Now the people have to fight for themselves". The junta that seized control of Thailand has since suppressed dissent and banned political gatherings of more than five people.

The Giants have two preseason games remaining, and the injury means Beckham is doubtful to play in either. While the Cowboys must prepare to be without their star RB Ezekiel Elliott for the season opener and beyond, their Week 1 opponents appear they may be without their star as well.

Quarterback Eli Manning needs Beckham fully healthy for the Giants to get back to the postseason and build on their 11-5 record in 2016.

And Beckham was walking around the locker room. After all, he didn't have an ankle nor was he in there getting treatment.

All of which seemingly can be attributed to Odell Beckham Jr.'s absence.
