Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. Leaves Game Against Browns After Taking Scary Hit to Ankle

Odell Beckham, Jr.'s ankle injury could keep him out of the New York Giants' season opener against the Dallas Cowboys, according to sources.

Briefly: Jets running back Matt Forte practiced fully for the first time in more than three weeks and says there's "no doubt" he'll be ready to play in the regular-season opener. Other defensive players mostly defended the hit because defenders are not allowed to hit receivers high, so Boddy-Calhoun went low.

When the game ended, Beckham, who spent the second half on the sideline in street clothes, jogged to the locker room.

Monday night, the 5-9, 193-pound Boddy-Calhoun became a villain in some circles for a controversial hit on Giants superstar Odell Beckham Jr.

Giants head coach Ben McAdoo didn't appear bothered by the hit.

"I don't know. I'm not really the judge", Beckham said. This morning, Beckham told ESPN's Josina Anderson, "I'm taking it one day at a time". McAdoo did not rule out playing them in either of the final two preseason games. His response was that he felt like he should be the highest paid player in the National Football League but it was also something that he was not focused on and he leaves those issues up to his agents. But, it actually was his ankle and - good news for the Giants - his X-ray came back clean. It revealed that Beckham had sustained a sprained left ankle.

"The play wasn't a penalty, but it's something everyone knows. you don't do".

"I was just trying to hit him low, hit him in the target area, which is from the neck to the knee", he added, "just anywhere in there, but I wasn't aiming at anything specific or anything like that".

The news was a relief for Giants fans that have high expectations for OBJ this upcoming season. We know they can't run the ball, but they went 11-5 a year ago without running the ball so that might not matter.
