Giants rookie WR Odell Beckham is making progress.
Maybe he gets to work in a few individual drills this week, as short as it is (Giants play Thursday night). Then he gets more extensive time in practice next week, actually getting in for some full-team drills. Most likely, however, that still would not be enough time for him to make his debut Oct. 5 against the Falcons. Maybe, but probably not.
If there are no setbacks, Beckham gets in another full week of work and – drumroll, please – finally gets to wear a uniform Oct. 12 for a Sunday night showdown with the Eagles in Philadelphia.
It's just one opinion, but it sounds as if the short week this week will push Beckham back at least another week. The Giants rode their starting WRs hard this past week as guys like Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle saw a majority of the snaps, so they could really use some depth at the position.
