From reports filtering out of East Rutherford on Monday, it sounds like New York Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. might be 2-3 weeks away from returning. It also sounds like head coach Tom Coughlin is tired of being badgered with Beckham questions.

So, now we know what we have suspected for a while -- the Giants will have to go through their first few games without the rookie they were counting on to help make their passing game go. Perhaps Beckham will be ready three weeks from now, but considering how little he has actually practiced it is hard to imagine him being a major contributor the first half of the season.
