It took all of two plays during live 11-on-11 drills for New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to make his presence felt.
Beckham participated in Friday’s walk-through-type practice after missing three days with a lower left leg injury. But Saturday was the first time he went against defenders since hurting his leg in a collision with cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
The injury didn’t slow Beckham down a step. He’s still got it.
“He looked good to me,” coach Ben McAdoo said of his star receiver’s health.
The Pro Bowl receiver beat Jenkins for a 70-yard touchdown reception on a perfectly placed pass from quarterback Eli Manning during Saturday’s practice. The touchdown came on a deep post where Beckham used a quick deke and then outpaced Jenkins by a full five yards. Beckham was slightly limited during the practice. He skipped one-on-one drills with the cornerbacks. But McAdoo insisted he did what was planned.
