"[If a deal isn't done] by the regular season, he'll take steps to protect himself", a source told Robinson.
Shortly after New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. went down with an ankle sprain in Monday night's preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns, he said he was "concerned" about potentially missing the regular season opener.
At issue is whether Beckham's injury is a high-ankle sprain or a low-ankle sprain, with the former requiring a longer recovery time and hindering a football player's ability to turn on the affected ankle.
Odell Beckham Jr. Could Miss New York Giants Opener
Beckham planted his left leg after catching an 18-yard pass in the second quarter of the Giants game against the Browns. Beckham does not yet have a first team All-Pro appearance, with Antonio Brown and Julio Jones having clogged those spots for the time being, but he's a three-time Pro Bowler and the centerpiece of New York's offense.
"It's up to coach", Beckham said. "A couple throws I think he'd like to have back, but that's a part of it, especially in preseason, you're going to miss some throws". Boddy-Calhoun undoubtedly could have delivered a shoulder or helmet to the ribs of Beckham in an attempt to force a drop, and there would be no morning-after debate in the football world. The Giants lost the game, 10-6. I don't know. You ever hurt your ankle? "We just had them in here for a treatment session and we'll take it day by day". "He's a tremendous player, one of the best in the league".
Beckham said after the game that he was "relieved" it was just a sprain and seemingly downplayed the injury. "I can't respect him".
Quarterback Eli Manning needs Beckham fully healthy for the Giants to get back to the postseason and build on their 11-5 record in 2016.
