Beckham Jr, Marshall Both Injured in Giants' preseason tilt with Cleveland

Report Giants Odell Beckham could miss first two weeks of season

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had to rush off the field after he took a brutal hit to his knees during a preseason game against the Cleveland Browns. Beckham nearly certainly will not play in the preseason game against the Jets on Saturday, which is expected to be a dress rehearsal for the regular season opener.

X-rays on the ankle were negative. Beckham is undergoing additional tests on Tuesday.

Beckham, one of the game's most popular players, could land a record-breaking wideout contract topping $100 million. "We'll see how he responds to treatment", McAdoo said Tuesday during a conference call.

He said he doesn't know if he'll be ready for Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Giants told reporters on Monday that he'll be "alright".

Odell Beckham Jr.is prepared to take matters into his own hands if a deal with the Giants can't be reached. Saying he's only to miss a game or two would undersell the severity and allow the Giants to force opponents to game plan for him. Beckham's camp said the 24-year-old was flirting with the idea before suffering a sprained ankle on Monday.

Beckham hurt his ankle on a low hit by Cleveland Browns safety Briean Boddy-Calhoun.

The Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman tweeted on Tuesday that if the league locks out players as it did in 2011, or overlooks the health risks to players, then "they have signaled that they are not anxious about the game in 20-30 years".

Last week, Jackson said he respected his players' rights to protest issues that are "far bigger than football" if it involved "much thoughtful dialogue" before it was ultimately executed. "He's a tremendous player, one of the best in the league, a tremendous competitor".

"I was just trying to hit him low, hit him in the target area, which is from the neck to the knee", he added, "just anywhere in there, but I wasn't aiming at anything specific or anything like that".

And they apparently got the good news for which they were hoping.
