Giants coach Pat Shurmur suggested last week that WR Odell Beckham could receive full medical clearance in time for Tuesday’s start to the minicamp, but there’s been no word of that clearance this week. Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that there was “discussion” inside the team on Monday about making such an announcement with hope that Beckham would do some “team reps” during minicamp.
Anderson also reports that Beckham’s “preference” is to not do any team work at this point in his return from injury.
Obviously, this likely has a lot to do with Beckham wanting a new contract. He doesn't want to step into team drills and risk another injury. CBS Sports reported Tuesday Beckham is running routes and looks good. If he doesn't work with the team beyond that, and the contract lingers into training camp, it will obviously be a distraction for the whole team.
