Odell Beckham Jr. returns to practice

15 September 2017

But as Manning said in an interview with the local media this week as the Giants began preparing for Monday night's game with the Detroit Lions, it was just one game.

Beckham's reported participation in a dance-off raised eyebrows considering he missed Sunday's season-opening 19-3 loss to the Cowboys. That did nothing to help the Giants, but it did extend Marshall's streak with at least one reception to 160 games in which he has played.

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones is reporting that Odell Beckham Jr.'s injury has come with a 6-8 week timetable. "I've got do a better job, get better prepared". Sounds insane right? Actually, a closer look at the Giants other offensive playmakers clearly displays the devastating results of having poor offensive line help.

Beckham hurt his ankle in a preseason game about a month ago.

Contract negotiations are always complex waters to navigate, but in just one game the Giants got a taste of what their fortunes might be without their best player, and Beckham was put an extremely powerful position to negotiating from. And this was not the first time the Manning-led Giants have struggled to score points. It looks like so far they haven't done enough this off-season to give Beckham more support. Now, questions are being asked as Beckham seems to be rushing to return.

It's easy for the Giants' front seven to not have their hands too full with the Lions' offensive line, and it's more than likely that they won't. They got in as a wild card last season with an 11-5 record.

Elliott finished with 104 yards on 24 carries Sunday night. None of the criticism is internal, but the linemen are aware of what's being said after the Giants averaged 2.9 yards a carry and Manning was sacked three times. Much of the scrutiny for the disappointment in Dallas was placed on the offensive line.

All that matters little if Manning is under constant pressure, as he was against the Cowboys.

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