Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Saturday morning headlines.

Odell Beckham, Jon Beason Injury Updates

Will rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham, officially listed as questionable, make his NFL debut Sunday?

"He's practiced on a limited basis for three days. That's as far as I'll go," head coach Tom Coughlin said Friday. "if the medical people are on board... the young man wants to play and he's here for that purpose. We're just going to have to put all the evidence together when the time comes."

Jon Beason has not played since aggravating his foot injury in Week 1. He is also listed as questionable.

"We don't know that just yet," said Coughlin when asked if Beason was likely to play. "It's what is the condition of the situation, how does he feel? A lot depends on that, the medical people and how he feels, so we'll have to wait and see also on that."

Beason reportedly did not sound optimistic on Friday.

"We’ll see how it goes, man," Beason told The Post in an exasperated voice after his limited participation in Friday’s practice. "Obviously, you want to be smart about it."
