Odell Beckham tweaked hamstring on Tuesday

The Giants had a few players forced out of practice on Tuesday because of injuries or difficulties dealing with heat, including first-round pick Odell Beckham.

The wide receiver pulled up while running a pattern and grabbed his hamstring before going to the sideline for treatment. On Wednesday, General Manager Jerry Reese said, via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, that Beckham tweaked the muscle. Reese didn’t offer any update on what Beckham might do in practice on Wednesday or any other day.

It’s not the first time Beckham has battled hamstring trouble in his brief Giants career. He dealt with it during the team’s spring work as well and said before Tuesday’s work that he wasn’t sure if it was 100 percent recovered.

Hamstring injuries have a tendency to linger if not given sufficient time to heal so the Giants may dial things back with Beckham in the near future to be sure that he’s in peak condition when he returns to the field. After all, having a speedy new receiver in your offense doesn’t do a lot of good if you can’t use him because he’s got a bad wheel.

    Does it matter NFC East goes as follows:

    Cowboys
    Eagles
    Redskins
    Giants

    Hahahaha the cowboys will be lucky to be 8-8 even though history suggests they will end up there, let me get some of whatever you’re smokin’

    Why did the Giants draft this guy who wanted to play soccer? He talked all about the World Cup when he was supposed to practicing last month.

    At least he got hurt after the Giants already threw in the towel on the year. Good luck to Beckham in his post-Giants career in soccer this fall.

    This kid is a great fit for us. Second day of practice tweaks his hammy. Bet that lingers all year.

    He’ll probably be upset with his contract after the first TD he catches in late October.

    This has all the trappings of another Jerry Reese first round winner!

    Hey ccjcsr, nice prediction, hope that post makes u feel better about being one of the worst run teams in the league that has been laughed at non stop since jimmy johnson left. little D has holes all over both sides of the ball, cant wait til sally romo hurts his back and brandon weeden steps under center. and that defense ur going to be putting out there, christ what a joke, should make for some good highlights

    He’s 100% right about hamstring injuries lingering. I’ve had mine for two months.

  13. fiverings37 says: Jul 23, 2014 3:47 PM

    he won’t contribute much this year.

  14. homerx says: Jul 23, 2014 4:27 PM

    They better shut him down now or we’ll be talking about this all season. He should be in a permanent hammy stretch position from today until the season starts. Stretch that puppy out!

    ODB will be good.
