New York Giants 'Optimistic' Odell Beckham Jr. Will Play Monday Night

The combination of running backs Paul Perkins and Orleans Darkwa weren't good, not with seven and three rushing attempts respectively, their 30 combined yards a mere fraction of Ezekiel Elliott's 104. He has only played in all 16 games once.

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took the next step in his recovery from a sprained left ankle by participating in the individual segment of practice.

There was blame to go around a couple of times, from the offensive line to the wideouts who could not get open. "I'm anxious about the offense being more efficient and starting faster".

"It was a little too exciting", Von Miller said after presenting Joseph with the game ball in the jubilant locker room. "We just have to bounce back", Manning said on Wednesday. "We got to be more efficient", Marshall said after the game, via the New York Daily News. "I don't know how it got blocked".

But there are still many areas that Giants need to fix in order to come out with a win. There were missed assignments among all phases of the offense and a general lack of execution.

That isn't to say Manning was completely at fault for Marshall's lackluster debut. "They're going to protect the quarterbacks in this league and you can't hit them after it's out of there".

During the offseason, Beckham had expressed a desire to negotiate his deal, and appears to know just how much he's worth.

Which means the bottom line is this: Beckham's injury appears just as serious as it initially looked when Browns safety Briean Boddy-Calhoun undercut the Giants' star receiver on August 21 in Cleveland.

"There's no hiding the fact he's a playmaker". "It's different when he's on the field, but on there or not, we have to play better than what we did and we can and we will". "I think there's a lot of responsibility that comes with that and I'm going to do everything I can to make sure to live up to that". The approach will be to keep working.

"I was so proud of the energy, the aggressiveness that our entire team showed, on both sided of the ball, even special teams" said Jones. "At the end of the day, they are still doing the same things that they have always done". We've got to move on. A high ankle sprain can cause severe discomfort and slow receivers if not fully recovered. You can see Dak Prescott also take a partial drop to try and further fool the defense into thinking it's a pass. "I felt it. I just couldn't tell you where I felt it".
