Giants' Beckham, Jr. Could Miss Season Opener vs. Cowboys

According to an ESPN report, Odell Beckham Jr.'s damaged left ankle may prevent him from playing in the Giants' opener at Dallas on September 10.

A source told the network it's "not out of the question he could miss a week or two of the regular season". But the fact that his ankle now could be worse than initially believed doesn't reflect particularly well on the Giants' decision to let Beckham wander the sideline on that injured ankle in the second half of Monday night's loss in Cleveland, does it? The fourth-year star's X-rays were negative for a break, but the MRI results have confirmed a sprain.

Speaking of Beckham, McAdoo said: "He's got an ankle, he's getting treatment, he's doing what he can to get ready to go". His response was that he felt like he should be the highest paid player in the National Football League but it was also something that he was not focused on and he leaves those issues up to his agents.

"Odell has an ankle and we'll see how he responds to treatment", McAdoo said, via New York's team website.

McAdoo gave no indications that he would rest either player in the final two preseason games, which is somewhat understandable.

Leading receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall seemingly avoided major injuries in a meaningless preseason game.

As for how soon Beckham will be back, McAdoo was equally evasive.

Last season, Beckham caught 101 passes for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns.

McAdoo's shadiness on Wednesday extended beyond updates on Beckham. "On offense, we definitely need to the work".

He's got an ankle, Beckham does.

Lewis said it's a matter of working and putting into practice what guys like Beckham and Marshall impart.
