Beckham had his injured quadriceps further evaluated Thursday at The Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, causing him to miss practice.
Advice: "It was good. We just went in, got it scanned just to see everything and it's doing much better than it was," said Beckham, who was scratched for last Sunday's game at Washington after his quad starting bothering him late in the week. The star receiver's status for this week's game against Tennessee is still up in the air.
Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Odell Beckham (quad) will not practice Thursday.
Advice: Shurmur said Beckham is being "further evaluated" outside of the building. Whether that evaluation is because of a setback or to potentially gain clearance is an open question. Beckham's status for this week remains up in the air.
Odell Beckham (quad) says he is doing "much better" but considers himself day to day.
Advice: Beckham seemed to consider himself genuinely questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Asked what was specifically wrong with his quad, Beckham responded, "I don’t know ... (stuff) ain’t right." This could come down to a game-time decision.
Odell Beckham (quad) is not practicing Wednesday.
Advice: Coach Pat Shurmur said Beckham is "getting better," but the Giants have no reason to push him to practice on a Wednesday. Ultimately, we expect Beckham to play this week against the Titans, but who knows after last week's late rule-out. Saquon Barkley would dominate touches again if OBJ sits.
Updating a previous item, Odell Beckham (quad) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Advice: Coach Pat Shurmur said himself before practice that Beckham wasn't going to participate, but OBJ did individual drills and looked to be his normal energetic self. It would be a big surprise if Beckham didn't play this week.
Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Odell Beckham (quad) "felt a lot better" on Monday.
Advice: Shurmur did not confirm Beckham will return this week, but the early indications look good. When asked about the injury in the locker room, Beckham gave a thumbs up and said he is "getting there." If he is active, Beckham will be a no-doubt WR1 against the Titans.
Odell Beckham (quad) is out for Week 14 against the Redskins.
Advice: Beckham was limited on Friday but wasn't even listed on the team's final injury report. Unable to travel with the team to Washington, the Giants will now lean on some combination of Sterling Shepard, Russell Shepard, Bennie Fowler, Jawill Davis, and Corey Coleman in three-wide sets. Saquon Barkley will likely become Eli Manning's go-to option, as the rookie's 91 targets (21% target share) are second on the team behind Beckham's 124 (28%). Shepard also suddenly enters the conversation as a WR3 since he averaged nine targets (6/73) and 14.4 fantasy points in seven games without ODB last year.
Odell Beckham (quad) was limited in Friday's practice.
Advice: It's said to be a bruise. Beckham isn't even on the final injury report and will play Sunday against the Redskins. In a run-heavy offense, OBJ is a back-end WR1. The Giants just prefer to keep the ball out of Eli Manning's hands.
