Odell Beckham, Jr. avoids serious injury after controversial hit in preseason game

Posted August 24, 2017

The Giants open their 2017 National Football League regular season on September 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

The hit drew the attention of many on Twitter, including one ESPN writer calling for a regular season suspension.

Marshall appeared to injure his shoulder in the first quarter when Eli Manning tossed a deep ball down the sideline; the Giants receiver pulled up short to avoid being hit by Browns safety Jabrill Peppers but was unsuccessful. According to another unnamed source in Graziano's column, Beckham's ankle was "very sore" Tuesday, and he's likely to miss the team's final two preseason games. And now Beckham reportedly is prepared to take out an insurance policy to protect himself in case he and the Giants don't come to an agreement on a contract extension, according to Yahoo!

Beckham didn't appreciate the hit and limited his postgame remark to say: "I don't know".

"I think anybody with any sense can see how divided we are as a country, and Charlottesville only magnified what we were already seeing", Boldin told The Associated Press by phone Monday. The Giants lost the game, 10-6. "It's not a penalty, but everybody knows, that's something you don't do".

Although not quite the headline matchup of Alabama-Florida State, the Gators will also also open with a top-20 matchup. This is the 10th consecutive season that Alabama has been ranked No. 1 in the AP Poll at some point during the season.

"Just because we're professional athletes doesn't mean we're exempt from the things that go on in society", Boldin said, noting his position as an athlete couldn't save his cousin from being shot. It revealed that Beckham had sustained a sprained left ankle.

New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo didn't give many details about Beckham's ankle Tuesday and said the team will wait to see how Beckham responds to treatment.

It is no secret that Beckham wants to be paid like one of the NFL's best receivers, and the highest-paid wideout - Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers - has a contract worth an average annual value of $17 million. "I thought Briean was just trying to tackle a player and got him on the ground".

If he continues his upward trajectory this upcoming season, it could force the Giants' hand to ink him to a new long-term deal before he hits the open market.
