Recent News's Jordan Raanan believes it's "not looking good" for Odell Beckham (hamstring) to be ready for the regular season.
We're considering Beckham "out indefinitely" after his latest hamstring setback. With Jerrel Jernigan not earning points from the coaching staff in camp, Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle should open the year as target monsters in New York's shaky passing attack. Beckham isn't worth a flier in re-draft leagues. Aug 19 - 8:29 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) has been ruled out for the Giants' third preseason game Friday.

The Giants are saying Beckham didn't suffer a setback. But being that he practiced last week and came up lame in Monday's practice, forcing him to ride the stationary bike Tuesday, there's no other way to term it than as a setback. Beckham might end up getting some run with the backups in the fourth preseason game simply because he's missed so much time and is far behind.

Odell Beckham (hamstring) is not practicing on Tuesday.

Beckham returned to practice last week after battling a hamstring for much of the spring and all of training camp up to that point. He lasted a week before re-injuring the hamstring in yesterday's practice while running a pass route. Beckham has yet to appear in a preseason game and seems extremely iffy for this week's regular season dress rehearsal. Beckham is off the re-draft radar.

Odell Beckham exited Monday's practice early and may have experienced a setback with his hamstring.

Midway through practice, Beckham was running a route upfield and pulled up lame. He immediately left the field and watched the remainder of practice from the sideline. The Giants say Beckham is "fine," but it's obviously something to watch. If Beckham didn't experience a setback, he should play this week.

Odell Beckham will sit out this weekend's game against the Colts, but is expected to be ready for the Giants' regular-season dress rehearsal on August 22.

"Not enough work (yet)," coach Tom Coughlin said Thursday. Beckham just resumed practicing on Monday. Barring a setback, he'll be 100 percent for the Giants' final two preseason games.
Aug 14 - 3:13 PM

Giants first-round receiver Odell Beckham (hamstring) returned to practice on Monday.

He participated in individual drills and "(didn't) look uncomfortable." Beckham had been sidelined since the first day of camp. He'll be brought along slowly to avoid setbacks, but should be ready to rock for the G-Men's regular-season dress rehearsal on August 22. He's probably less than 50-50 for Saturday's game against the Colts. "OBJ" is just a late-round flier in re-draft leagues.
Aug 11 - 3:58 PM

Giants first-round pick Odell Beckham (hamstring) will return to practice on an individual basis Monday.

The Giants will gauge Beckham's recovery, and likely bring him along slowly after the LSU product's early-camp setback. With Beckham on the shelf, Jerrel Jernigan has soaked up first-team reps with Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle.
Aug 10 - 4:13 PM

Giants rookie Odell Beckham (hamstring) insists he's getting "close" to returning.

"I'm getting there," Beckham said Thursday. "It's a process, should be soon." It echoes comments made by coach Tom Coughlin on Wednesday. Coughlin has been exasperated with Beckham's slow recovery, but there's no reason for the G-Men to push their first-round pick in early August. Beckham will miss this week's preseason tilt, and should be considered questionable for game three.
Aug 7 - 1:13 PM

Coach Tom Coughlin said Odell Beckham (hamstring) is "getting close" to returning to practice.

Beckham has been fielding punts and catching passes from the JUGS machine the past couple weeks. He progressed to running on Tuesday, and the Giants plan to have a quarterback throw him passes soon. Barring a setback, we'd think Beckham should be back at practice next week. He's day-to-day.
Aug 6 - 1:43 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) remains sidelined at Giants practice.

Beckham has been out for the better part of two weeks. He was held out of Sunday's preseason opener, and isn't ready to return to practice. Jerrel Jernigan will continue to see snaps in three-wide sets. Beckham is missing important practice time. There are more intriguing late-round fantasy fliers.
Aug 5 - 12:53 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's preseason opener.

It's an expected move, as Beckham hasn't practiced since last week. Beckham's hamstring issues date back to OTAs and could impact his early-season playing time. Jerrel Jernigan will replace Beckham in three-wide sets.
Aug 2 - 7:08 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) will miss at least another week after his MRI came back negative for a tear on Monday.

While it's good he doesn't have a tear, Beckham's strain has lingered since the spring and become a fairly major concern early in training camp. The Giants hope he'll be back by their second preseason game. OBJ is competing for snaps with Jerrel Jernigan behind Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. If he can't kick the injury, it's conceivable Beckham would open the season as the Giants' No. 4 receiver. We don't see much reason to take a flier on OBJ in re-draft leagues.
Jul 28 - 9:33 PM

Odell Beckham was absent from Giants practice Monday to undergo tests on his injured hamstring.

The move comes one day after coach Tom Coughlin expressed frustration with Beckham's slow recovery. Beckham is likely undergoing an MRI, which would give the Giants a much-better idea of when he might return. Beckham is falling behind as the Giants sort out their post-Hakeem Nicks receiver corps.
Jul 28 - 5:10 PM

Giants coach Tom Coughlin referred to first-round pick Odell Beckham's (hamstring) continued training camp absences as "more than a little disappointing."

Hamstring injuries have a frustrating tendency to linger, and Beckham has been battling his since OTAs. He's been shut down at training camp, only fielding punts. Beckham's absence has given Jerrel Jernigan more opportunity.
Jul 27 - 3:35 PM

The New York Daily News sees rookie Odell Beckham as "more complement than competition" for a starting job in two-wide sets.

The Giants will play a lot of three wides, but Beckham won't be on the field in two-receiver packages, and a hamstring injury has bothered him since the spring, keeping the rookie behind. A rookie-year stat line similar to DeAndre Hopkins' in Houston last year (52-802-2) would be a success for "OBJ."
