ARLINGTON, Texas – Ever since he sprained his ankle on Aug. 21 the Giants have considered Odell Beckham Jr. to be day-to-day.
Today is not that day. Beckham is inactive.
The wide receiver warmed up about two hours prior to the season opener against the Cowboys, even running routes and catching passes from Eli Manning. He did not appear to have any difficulty accelerating, cutting or stopping, but he did not seem to reach top speed at any point during the workout either.
Late in the 31-minute test, Ben McAdoo put his arm around Beckham, spoke through Beckham’s hoodie into his ear for a few moments, and then gave him a pat on the backside. That seemed to be the moment when the Giants told Beckham he would not be playing.
The Giants will line up with Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard as their starting wide receivers.
