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.
HC Tom Coughlin denied he knew anything about Beckham's potential hamstring aggravation in a spiritual exchange with the media yesterday. It recently came out that Beckahm won't play in the team's preseason game against the Jets, which is a key contest considered the final tuneup before the regular season. Beckham was apparently kicked in the leg Monday and is sore, but the team feels like he was not re-injured.
