New York Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. Ruled Out Vs. New York Jets with Hamstring Soreness

Despite New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin stating that Odell Beckham Jr. was fine after leaving practice on Monday with what looked like to be a tweak of his hamstring, the team is not taking any chances in re-aggravating the injury.

Coughlin announced after Tuesday's practice that while Beckham did not suffer any setbacks with the hamstring, he is being ruled out for their next preseason game on Saturday night against the New York Jets with what is being called hamstring soreness.

Beckham did not practice on Tuesday and spent most of the time either on a stationary bike, with the training staff, or just on the sidelines watching without his pads on. Beckham was initially out for almost three weeks after originally injuring the hamstring early on in training camp and missed the team's first three games of the preseason against the Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts. Now, he'll miss a fourth one against the Jets.

Beckham is the team's first round pick from the 2014 NFL Draft and was supposed to be the replacement for the departed Hakeem Nicks as far as being a potential play-making receiver, but thus far, the Giants haven't been able to unveil their latest weapon in the offense; an offense that has had its struggles and looked bad in their last game against the Colts.

It's not clear if Beckham will be able to go for the Giants in their preseason finale against the New England Patriots, which will be a home game at MetLife Stadium just six days after the Giants and Jets battle in the annual preseason "MetLife Bowl."

    Like i said… We won’t see him till week 2 of the regular season or possibly later.

    And this will hinder his whole season.

    Looks like J Jones is sticking pins in dolls again. WHat happened to Robinson that he caught three balls? Maybe St. Jude is getting involved.
    I have the 4th Q wins figured out. You remember Angels in the outfield. We have Angels on the Gridiron. How else can we explain that no matter who plays QB in the fourth Q has a QB rating of 100+
    The question then is who is working the other 3Qs? Hmmmmmmm

  3.  James Stoll says:

    Its beginning to look like 2014 will be a scratch year for Beckum
    Hamstring “tweaked” in OTAs, he rests for 5 weeks, the first practice back he tweeks it again; rests for nearly 4 weeks, one practce back and “tweaked” again.
    3 tweaks may well be a strain
    4 is a pull
    5 = IR

    so we start the season with Cruz and Thing 1 and Thing 2
    at least it paves the way for both Harris and Washington and perhaps Parker or Harvey

  4.  Nosh.0 says:

    At this point I’m keeping him out until he’s been 100% pain free for 2 full weeks. Meaning week 4 or 5 likely. They should have kept him out another week because this sort of thing was likely to happen.

    At this point they should just roll with Randle JJ, Cruz and maybe give Washington some first team snaps to see what they have in him.

    I like to give TC cr@p but I can’t knock him for being frustrated about this. You take a kid in the first round, have every plan of putting him right into the starting lineup and he can’t stay healthy. And on top of that TC’s job is on the line.

    The offensive players may seem complacent, but you know Coughlin is yelling his a-s-$ off right now.

    •  Nosh.0 says:

      This also means that if JJ or Randle have any intentions of seeing a 2nd contract, they will realize this opportunity and run with it. I’m curious to see what we have in Washington against starters also. Normally I’d write him off but we’ve seen first hand what undrafted WR’s can do.

    Hard for me to believe we have this many issues with high picks on offense. I wasn’t prepared mentally for another horror show like last year, looks like it may be time to at least entertain 5-11.

    •  G Fan since Ninteen Forty Eight says:

      Remember the original Spartacus where everyone throws a spear at the worst gladiator offender- forcing the others to get in shape. Do u think that is too drastic a motivational tool?

  6.  skinnydoogan says:

    Before the lambasting starts, I am putting my kool aid down and PREPARING for the worst, not giving up yet.

    •  BigBlueGiant says:

      ya ya, we know man. I think most of us here except GOAT have come to terms of reality with this team.

      even FF55 knows that this team is a year or so away from being really good. He just doesn’t wanna give in.

      The first 4 games will be the season. We need to somehow come out 2-2 at least. I see 0-4 though as of right now.

    When my Great Aunt tried to sell her house she either put a statue of St Joseph out in the cold or buried him head first in the ground…just saying…….

  8.  G Fan since Ninteen Forty Eight says:

    Maybe if we sacrifice a goat – thou that is a little messy – How abt a chicken -That is messy too – How abt chopping up a symbiotic Frankfurter and pouring a bottle of beer over it???

    •  GIANTT says:

      why waste a good bottle of beer ?
      Did you have any particular GOAT in mind for the sacrifice or just some generic four legged eat anything bearded horned – you know the more I write the more I think of Kujo

  9.  G Fan since Ninteen Forty Eight says:

    As u can tell I am getting desperate.

  10.  G Fan since Ninteen Forty Eight says:

    I am sure Krow can come up with something. Maybe if we burned a Jet jersey?
