Any little hop, skip or jump that Giants first-round pick WR Odell Beckham takes these days draws attention, even if it's the slightest bit out of the ordinary. That's what happens when the No. 12 overall pick in the draft misses almost four weeks of training camp with a hamstring injury, and remains limited at practice.
Beckham did not participate in 11-on-11 drills on Monday. When he did take the field during a live portion of practice (7-on-7), he caught a pass near the left sideline and burst upfield.
After running into a defender, the playmaking wide receiver did an awkward hop and jogged -- very slowly -- to the makeshift sideline in the middle of the field. He stood there the remainder of practice.
Beckham did not take another rep the rest of the afternoon. He stood on the sideline and (at times) flexed his leg. The Giants, however, insist he did not aggravate the hamstring.
The Giants offense already has enough issues so this is the last thing they need. HC Tom Coughlin denied any knowledge of the situation in a pretty awkward exchange with the media. We'll continue to follow the situation.
