Giants news: Odell Beckham Jr. ‘didn’t have any setbacks’ after return to the field
The New York Giants were finally able to get their superstar wide receiver back on the field in Week 2. Odell Beckham Jr. returned against the Detroit Lions after dealing with an ankle injury he suffered during the preseason.
Although the result was the same with Beckham on the field as the Giants fell to the Lions, the perennial Pro Bowler didn’t suffer any setbacks, via ESPN.
“I came out straight. I didn’t have any setbacks or anything like that. So, keep ramping up the rehab,” the New York Giants star wide receiver said. “Just try to get as good as you can get, you know what I mean?”
With Beckham back in the fold, the Giants offense gets that much more dynamic, so the star wideout not dealing with any setbacks is definitely a significant step in the right direction. The real question is whether New York can turn it around now that their best player is back on the field.
Beckham may be back to playing status on a weekly basis, but he admits his ankle isn’t 100 percent, via ESPN.
“The ankle is something you get on every single day. So, you never really know, but I’m going to get as good as I can get and I know once I’m comfortable cutting off in each and every way, I don’t see that there will be any problems with it, even if it’s not 100,” he said.
The Giants have dropped the first two games of the season and will hope to get their first win of the 2017 campaign in Week 3. New York will have a tough task ahead this weekend as they face Carson Wentz and the division rival Philadelphia Eagles on the road.
