Giants wideout Odell Beckham left Monday night's game after taking a hard shot directly to his left knee, but did not sustain any serious injuries.
The team's top offensive weapon was drilled by Browns corner Briean Boddy-Calhoun as he came down from nabbing a high pass in the second quarter. Beckham spun his helmet in frustration but walked off the field under his own power. After trotting into the tunnel en route to the locker room, a television camera caught Beckham on his knees rocking back and forth in pain.
ESPN reported during the broadcast that Beckham was being evaluated for both a concussion and an ankle injury, but that Beckham was cleared of any concussion symptoms.
The Giants said officially that Beckham sustained a sprained ankle. X-ray results came back negative and the team says that Beckham will undergo further examination.
In other news, Brandon Marshall underwent an X-ray on his shoulder.

The Giants will probably put Beckham on ice for the remainder of the preseason, though we should have an idea of how his ankle is progressing based on his practice participation. Given Marshall's apparent shoulder injury, Sterling Shepard might deserve to be bumped up a few spots in the receiver rankings.
