Coach Tom Coughlin confirmed Jon Beason (foot) will miss the Giants' Week 3 matchup with the Texans.

Beason's season was thought to be in jeopardy after he aggravated the foot injury that sidelined him most of the summer against the Cardinals Week 2. Beason shed his protective walking boot on Thursday, however, and spoke as if he could play this week. There is still no timetable for Beason's return, but it now appears he will be able to get back on the field this season. Jameel McClain should start at middle linebacker in Beason's absence.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano has gotten indications from the coaches that Rashad Jennings will be asked to help in pass protection this week.

The Giants' shaky offensive line is going to need all the help they can get dealing with J.J. Watt. It appears they'll ask Jennings to stay in and help, or at least chip. Jennings, who has four catches in each of the first two games, may not get there this week.

NJ.com's Jordan Raanan expects Odell Beckham (hamstring) to be sidelined until at least Week 5.

Beckham has begun making sharp cuts and running at near-full speed in a straight line, but he hasn't practiced with the team in over a month. We wouldn't bother stashing Beckham in re-draft leagues, even in 14-teamers.

Giants OC Ben McAdoo said whatever they get from Odell Beckham (hamstring) this season "will be a good bonus."

Not exactly what most teams, especially bad ones like the Giants, expect from No. 12 overall picks. Beckham hasn't practiced fully in nearly three months, as he's been painfully slow to recover from a pulled hamstring. When Beckham does return, he's going to have some serious depth chart climbing to do.

Preston Parker is expected to take over as the Giants' third receiver after Jerrel Jernigan's year-ending foot injury.

The G-Men are turning to journeyman slot-receiver type Parker over UDFA Corey Washington. Parker returns punts, so perhaps he now has some value in return-yardage league. Parker will be the No. 5 option in New York's passing game, behind Larry Donnell, Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, and Rashad Jennings.

Odell Beckham (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Beckham was able to run sprints on the side, but still hasn't been cleared. Coach Tom Coughlin has already confirmed Beckham won't return in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 6:37 PM

Coach Tom Coughlin said Odell Beckham (hamstring) won't play Week 3 against the Texans.

"Not to my knowledge," Coughlin said. "Not with the team." Beckham remains sidelined at practice, and isn't expected to take any reps this week. Preston Parker will fill in as the Giants' No. 3 receiver in place of Jerrel Jernigan (foot, I.R.). Parker (6'/200) has just one catch since the 2011 season with the Bucs.
Sep 17 - 11:13 AM

Coach Tom Coughlin has yet to rule Odell Beckham (hamstring) out for Week 3.

It doesn't mean we'll see Beckham make his debut this week against the Texans, but it suggests the 12th overall pick is more day-to-day than week-to-week. Beckham hasn't practiced in well over a month. After placing Jerrel Jernigan on I.R. with a mid-foot sprain, the Giants are looking for a new No. 3 receiver and someone to ignite the offense. When healthy, Beckham is that sort of player.

Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) is out indefinitely.

Per the team, Beason "may" visit a foot-and-ankle specialist after aggravating his June injury in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Beason suffered a sesamoid fracture in minicamp, and was sidelined the better part of three months. It's unclear how serious the aggravation is, but Beason's season could be in jeopardy. It's a huge concern for the Giants' shaky defense.
Sep 16 - 5:11 PM

Giants placed WR Jerrel Jernigan on injured reserve with a mid-foot sprain, ending his season.

WR Julian Talley will take his place on the 53-man roster. It suggests Jernigan is dealing with a dreaded Lisfranc injury, though the Giants say he won't need surgery. Called out by coach Tom Coughlin in training camp, Jernigan had not been an effective as the Giants' fill-in No. 3 receiver this season, catching 6-of-9 targets for 40 yards through 110 snaps. Preseason star Corey Washington should now be in for a bigger role as the Giants await first-rounder Odell Beckham's (hamstring) return. A 2011 third-rounder, Jernigan is in the final year of his rookie contract. He has just 38 career catches.

Dan Fox - LB - Giants

Giants promoted LB Dan Fox from the practice squad.

It's a sign the G-Men don't expect MLB Jon Beason (toe) back any time soon. Fox is an undrafted rookie out of Notre Dame.
Sep 16 - 1:57 PM

ESPN New York expects Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) to miss extended time.

Beason re-aggravated the toe injury that cost him all of training camp in Sunday's loss. He's currently awaiting the results of an MRI, but should be considered highly questionable for Week 3. Jameel McClain will replace Beason if he misses time, with Spencer Paysinger playing on the strong-side.
Sep 16 - 11:44 AM

Asked Monday about rookie Odell Beckham's hamstring, coach Tom Coughlin replied "They claim he's getting better."

"They" is the Giants' medical staff. Beckham has been inactive for each of New York's first two games and seems to remain without a timetable for return. Beckham has barely practiced with the Giants since they drafted him, as he was regularly out of commission during both spring practices and training camp.
Sep 15 - 3:02 PM

Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan suffered a mid-foot sprain in Sunday's loss.

He is being "evaluated." Foot injuries are among the trickiest injuries for football players to come back from, especially receivers. Jernigan should be considered doubtful for Week 3, and is likely staring at a multi-week absence. Jernigan has six catches for 40 yards through the Giants' first two games.
Sep 15 - 2:36 PM

Giants CB Walter Thurmond III sustained a torn pectoral in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals and is out for the season.

Thurmond, a talented player who had to settle for a one-year deal in free agency in part due to injury history, will have surgery this week. It's another blow to a reeling 0-2 Giants team. The only sliver of good news is that CB Jayron Hosley will be off suspension for Week 5 and can slide into Thurmond's slot role.
