Cowboys Could Face Giants Without Odell Beckham Jr. Week 1

The football world held its collective breath Monday night when star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was hit right around the knee area by Cleveland defensive back Briean Boddy-Calhoun. The Giants play at New England on August 31.

"He's in there. He's got an ankle", McAdoo said.

Head coach Ben McAdoo relayed Tuesday that Beckham received treatment in the Giants facility during practice. In six games against the Cowboys, he's caught 31 passes for 426 yards and 5 touchdowns. Anonymous team sources believe that Beckham may not be ready for the regular season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on September 10. So second-year wide receiver Roger Lewis Jr. could benefit from the absence of Beckham and Marshall.

You can watch the video below and judge for yourself if Odell might've done any serious damage. "They're definitely a big part of our offense", cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie said.

"You don't want to think about that". "As long as you see the guys walking around the locker room like there's not a problem, you're happy about that".

The Giants know exactly what Beckham can do.

According to Yahoo Sports, Beckham is considering taking out an insurance policy, possibly for more than $100 million, for injury protection if he doesn't have a new contract before the season opener. "If he was somewhere lying on the table or something, that'd be different". The Giants have a shoddy offensive line and a poor running game, so if Beckham does miss a week or more, it could put them in an early hole in the NFC East. When the Giants practiced with three receivers, Shepard moved inside, where he usually plays, and undrafted rookie Travis Rudolph ran with the starters.
