The Giants offense produced three points on Sunday night without wide receiver Odell Beckham in the lineup, so it’s fair to say that their chances of a better showing against the Lions next Monday night will have something to do with whether they get him back from an ankle injury.
Coach Ben McAdoo didn’t offer much of an update about that possibility when he spoke to the media on Monday. McAdoo called Beckham’s status “day-to-day” and it will be Thursday before the team has to issue a practice report that sheds more insight about any progress he’s made in his recovery.
Unfortunately this is another prime time game and OBJ could be another game-time call. Owners should try to figure out a backup plan and have someone else to slide in should Beckham again be inactive. Sunday night's NBC broadcast showed Beckham warming up, but also wincing a bit while running on the ankle, so he'll continue to get treatment in hopes of playing Week 2.
