Odell Beckham back on sideline for Giants

Odell Beckham Jr. AP

Giants first-round pick Odell Beckham returned to practice last week after a lengthy absence caused by a hamstring injury and raised hopes that he’d be able to make his preseason debut against the Jets this weekend.

Those plans may need to be put on hold, however. Multiple people on the Giants beat report that Beckham is on the sideline doing individual rehab work with other injured players while the rest of the team goes through practice in full pads.

There’s no word on a specific issue for Beckham, who had to leave Monday’s practice early after pulling up at the end of a sprint. The Giants said that Beckham, who didn’t return to practice, was fine but it seems that being fine and being able to practice are mutually exclusive in this case.

Beckham’s hamstring also limited him during spring work, so he hasn’t had much time at all to work in the new offense since being drafted in May. That’s probably not the leading ┬áreason for the unit’s August difficulties, but it isn’t helping get things on track either. If Beckham’s out for much more time, it may be hard for him to make much of an impact in his first season as a professional.

    2010 Philadelphia Eagles Offense is OBSOLETE. Why are the NJ giants running this offense with players that can not run the offense, especially Ellen Manning.

    Why don’t you ever comment on Eagles stories? You always just troll on Giants, Redskins, and Cowboys stories.

    By the way, welcome back. Funny that you show up on this site again after the Eagles win the division. However, during the 5-11 season, you were absolutely NOWHERE to be found.

    Nothing screams “frontrunner” like that.

    That’s what the Giants get for drafting a guy who dreamed of playing soccer in the World Cup. What’s wrong with my Giants? Why did they waste a first round pick on this soccer player?

    Another SEC player that’s going to have a picture playbook because he can’t read.

    Great start to our 2014 draft class! I bet Beckham will join the long list of superstar Jerry Reese draft picks with names like:

    Ryan Nassib, Cooper Taylor, Reuben Randle, Jayron Hosley, Adrien Robinson, Jerrel Jernigan, Marvin Austin, James Brewer, Tyler Sash, Clint Sintim, Ramses Barden, Travis Beckum and of course my personal favorite David Wilson

    Well at least everything will be better now in Giants land.

    Top WRs in our division:

    Dez Bryant
    Pierre Garcon
    Victor Cruz
    Giants WR2-WR4
    Skins WR2 – WR4
    Cowboys WR2 – WR4
    Phillys receivers

    In that order.

    My bad….forgot DeSean Jackson. He’s right below Bryant.

    All this rest for this kids hammy better pay off. On a brighter note, Corey Washington!!! Let’s hope he’s legit. Should make the 53 man roster.

  13. illogicalpoet says: Aug 19, 2014 2:37 PM

    I hope they let Corey Washington play w/ the ones next week. He’ll three TD’s alas Victor Cruz!

    first round wide receivers tend to not live up to draft slot…..Colston was picked in the 7th…

    And I got Odell on 3 fantasy teams go figure

    Giants vs Jets? That’s a stinker in the making.

    This guy is turning Miles Austin back in to Smiles Austin! You’re making him proud Beckham! Keep up the great…uh… work?

    I think he will have a big breakout game vs. the eagles in October.

    My Giants; too bad to make the playoffs; too good to get a decent QB in the draft next year. And boy do we need one.
