Odell Beckham “getting close” to return

The Giants haven’t had first-round pick Odell Beckham on the field for a while, but it looks like the wide receiver won’t be on the sideline much longer.

Beckham injured his hamstring during the team’s opening practice of training camp and has been limited to rehab and other individual work since then. Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports that his work progressed to running outside on Wednesday and coach Tom Coughlin said the team expects Beckham to do more work in the the near future.

“Sounds like he’s getting close,” Coughlin said. “They have him doing a lot of things. They’re going to push him to do a little bit more today and then they are going to get a quarterback to throw to him and see how that goes too. So he’s getting close.”

Beckham was also bothered by hamstring trouble in the spring, so one would expect the Giants to be cautious as Beckham ramps back up to full speed in the coming weeks. He’ll miss at least two preseason games, which could limit his workload early in the season but that’s a far better fate than being totally sidelined during his first year in the NFL.

  1. The Giants can never seem to shake their injuries. It’s a shame Wilson can’t come back, and if they can’t keep Beckham healthy they lose another young and talented player.

  2. Does it really matter if he returns? The Philadelphia Owned NJ giants are going nowhere and will be owned by the Philadelphia Eagles like they have been for the past 6 years. Now they are saying if we can’t beat them we might as well copy their offense….from 2010. LOL Get it together NJ…..

  3. Philly owned? Owned for the past 6 yrs, mayb. But what do u own victory wise? Couple division champs? Own a pile of vomit on the super bowl turf? U should b ashamed to even think u own somethimg, let alone a great organization such as THE NEW YORK FOOTBALL GIANTS! Big blue wrecking crew 2014!!

    History will show the Miami Dolphins got the better LSU WR in the 2014 draft.

    Ryan Tannehill is your best wide receiver.

  9. The one thing that fans in Philly do not understand is the first 17 weeks only count for W-L its the next 4 games that matter.

    You have a third rate QB no one to catch the ball and a coach who will be back in the College Ranks this time next year.
