Report: Odell Beckham getting laser treatment on ankle

AP

All the Giants will say about the condition of star wide receiver Odell Beckham is that “he’s got an ankle.”

Specifically, he has two, but the one that’s injured is about to undergo an alternative treatment in hopes of getting him back on the field quicker.

According to Gil Brandt of SiriusXM NFL Radio, Beckham is going today for the first in a series of Phoenix Thera-Lase treatments, similar to a process Jared Allen underwent before playing in Super Bowl 50, after Allen missed the NFC Championship Game with a broken foot.

While the results of the treatment are yet to be seen, there is a concern among Giants officials that Beckham could miss the regular season opener, according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.

But that could depend on the laser (which may or may not be attached to the head of a fricking shark). According to Phoenix Thera-Lase’s website, the treatment is done from a “portable laser bio-stimulation device,” and “delivers concentrated laser-light energy to the cellular level of the body” to reduce inflammation and help heal soft-tissue injuries.

  1. This guy is a stud however he can’t get out of his own way. Because of arrogance, he is going to rush back and re-injure that ankle. He should sit down until that thing is completely healed. You don’t mess around with an ankle as a receiver.

  2. Odell Beckham’s with “laser” beams attached to their frickin’ ankles?

    Scary thought.

  3. This is nothing new at all. Plenty of lasers used for healing all over the US. Further, they have been using lasers on race horses for mending for 25 years.

    I wouldn’t be too concerned with Beckham rushing back. He had an injury at the start of his career that kept him out of preseason and the beginning of the season, and we all know how well he played that season. I’d rather him be conservative and stay out until he feels 100% ready. The opener against Dallas, while it would be great to have OBJ in the lineup, isn’t worth the risk, especially with Zeke being out that game.

  5. Appreciate you bring up the “got an ankle,” “got a leg” thing. Drives me CRAZY when I hear that.

    As to laser treatment on his ankle – maybe while he’s there they could use it to reduce the swelling in his ego! You think there’s any chance of that?

    what is the difference between a laser and growth hormone? both are just improved treatments

    —————————–

    One is explicitly forbidden under the CBA, the other is not. There are many other differences but that is the primary one as it regards to NFL player treatments.

  7. Trade him to the Saints. LSU guy playing in front of his home crowd rocks the Dome; attendance goes way up; extends Brees’ career; he gets his numbers; and the G-men get “multiple draft”picks. Everyone’s a winner.
