Giants WR Odell Beckham (hip) played through pain in Week 7

NJ.com - [Full Article]

He ended up playing in the Giants' 17-10 win, and he was productive. But it was clear Giants WR Odell Beckham was far from 100 percent, and hurting from start to finish as his hip pointer lingered.

"It took a lot to get ready for this game," Beckham admitted after the fact, adding he did not feel he was as fast as usual. "It was all mental preparation, actually. Even going through warmups, I didn't quite known what to expect. I got out there, and it was a little ... it was pretty painful. {Co-owner John] Mara and [general manager Jerry] Reese and coach (Ben McAdoo) gave me an opportunity to play."

Fantasy Impact: 

Beckham said he and the Giants came up with a "plan" to manage his workload given his limitations, and it was made clear he could come off the field if need be. Beckham did not play every offensive snap, but he still played 95 percent of them, his 54 snaps leading the receivers group. Beckham admitted there was a "seed of doubt" whether or not he'd be able to even play. The team has a bye in Week 8 and hopefully Beckham will be close to normal for Week 9.
