New York Giants' Odell Beckham Jr.: What We Know About Ankle Injury

New York Giants' Odell Beckham Jr.: What We Know About Ankle Injuryā€¯

The New York Giants may have caught a break with wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall. The Giants also saw backup receiver and special teams player Tavarres King left the game with a sprained ankle. While X-rays came back negative, an MRI confirmed the diagnosis of an ankle sprain.

On Monday night, the Giants had a rough go with the Cleveland Browns. And if he doesn't get a new deal before Week 1, Beckham will take measures to protect himself.

In their second preseason game of 2017, the New York Giants were hoping to take a leap on the offensive side of the ball regarding scoring and being able to run the ball.

"It's football. You can't hit a guy high, you can't hit a guy low, you can't hit him in the middle", McAdoo said.

"We wanted to draw attention to the fact that there's things in this country that still need to change".

On this particular hit, there's probably some more room for uproar because of how high Beckham was when he went up to make the catch.

The hit drew the ire of Beckham as he appeared to spin the ball on the ground towards Boddy-Calhoun and glared towards the Browns defense as he walked to the sideline.

But McAdoo would not rule out their participation in either of the two remaining exhibition games.

Beckham, one of the game's most popular players, could land a record-breaking wideout contract topping $100 million. He has 288 career receptions for 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns. He's perhaps best known for his game-saving, goal-line strip of De'Mornay Pierson-El in the Gophers' 2014 win at Nebraska. But if you have a chance to have everyone out there playing together, playing with one another, you do it.

Last week, Jackson said he respected his players' rights to protest issues that are "far bigger than football" if it involved "much thoughtful dialogue" before it was ultimately executed. "That's a medical decision".
