Three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is being listed as day to day with a sprained left ankle.
X-Rays on the shoulder of fellow wide receiver Brandon Marshall were also negative, coach Ben McAdoo said. The 33-year-old veteran also is being listed as day to day.
Speaking on a conference call Tuesday, McAdoo didn’t give many details about Beckham’s ankle, refusing to say whether the injury in a preseason loss to Cleveland on Monday night was a high ankle sprain, which usually takes longer to recover from. McAdoo said the team will wait to see how Beckham responds to treatment. An MRI on the ankle was negative. Beckham expressed optimism about playing in the opener, but players are often too optimistic about their recovery timelines. Beckham did return to the sideline after the injury diagnosis, and he wasn't on crutches or in a walking boot, which is an indicator that the sprain is minor. He should be available in Week 1.
