Rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., sidelined since the first day of training camp with a hamstring injury, will practice Monday for the New York Giants. Head coach Tom Coughlin said Beckham will do individual drills and perhaps a little more if he feels up to it.

"If he can do a little bit more maybe he'll do a little bit more," Coughlin said. "If he can't then we'll keep it strictly with individual."

Beckham was the Giants' first-round pick, selected 12th overall. The Giants, struggling to find a rhythm in their revamped offense, can use Beckham's skills. Quarterback Eli Manning and wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, replacing Beckham on the outside, have struggled to connect through two preseason games.

Coughlin said fullback John Conner, injured on the game's final play, does have what has been termed a concussion, but said "his eyes were bright" and the coach hopes to have him back on the field quickly. Coughlin seemed to be hopeful that Conner could practice at some point this week after going through the NFL concussion protocol.
