Odell Beckham Jr. practices, says he's dealing with 6-8 week injury

Odell Beckham burns Josh Norman

Linebacker Keenan Robinson (concussion) also missed practice as the Giants began preparations for their Monday night matchup at MetLife Stadium with the Detroit Lions. He rode the stationary bike while his teammates practiced on Thursday.

On Thursday he participated in team drills for the first time since spraining his ankle on August 21, going through some routes and catching passes with the rest of the Giants' receiving squad.

"We had a bad game", said Beckham, who warmed up before the game and felt his ankle was not ready even though he wanted to play.

The Giants' offense was limited to 233 yards in the loss to the Cowboys on Sunday night.

"It's not how you start, it's how you finish in the NFL", Manning said. Obviously, these issues aren't magically fixed overnight, but let's pray and hope for the best.

US And International Sanctions Can and Should Be Used to Punish Iran
Ambassador Nikki Haley made the case why the administration would be justified in decertifying Iran under the USA legislation. They argue that at the very least Iran is violating the spirit of the agreement with its ballistic missile tests.

"I know a dance battle looks good on a title", Beckham said.

That's what Beckham does best, and why he has emerged as one of the league's most risky, not to mention dynamic players. He said he rolled his ankle on the fifth or sixth play.

Further complicating his status are concerns that if he returns to action too soon, he could potentially undo all the progress he's made in rehab. If he can not play in Week 2, the Giants do not have wonderful options to replace him. The Giants also could give undrafted rookie Chad Wheeler his first National Football League start or ask D.J. Fluker to play right tackle. The addition of free agent wide receiver Brandon Marshall couldn't offset the loss, not with four targets and just one catch, on the game's final play. "It's one game. I am for sure not panicking". If we do that, who knows how the game goes? Manning is a good enough quarterback to get him the ball early and often when he's on target. "Just couldn't connect on a couple of those plays". Sounds insane right? Actually, a closer look at the Giants other offensive playmakers clearly displays the devastating results of having poor offensive line help. Unfortunately we lost, but it's one game. The last time the Giants lost when allowing fewer than 20 points was November 16, 2014, a 16-10 loss to the 49ers.

Wheeler probably has a slight edge because the Giants think Fluker is more suited to play guard at this point in his career.
