As had been expected, the New York Giants announced on Monday that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who fractured his left ankle on Sunday vs. the Los Angeles Chargers, will undergo surgery this week to repair the damage.
No date for that surgery has yet been set. Coach Ben McAdoo today acknowledged on a conference call with reporters that Beckham’s season is over. “It’s a said situation,” McAdoo said.
The Giants also announced that wide receiver/kick returner Dwayne Harris will have surgery Tuesday to repair a fractured fifth metatarsal in his foot.
Wide receiver Brandon Marshall is undergoing further testing today on his injured ankle. Sterling Shepard, another injured wide receiver, is listed as day-to-day with an ankle sprain.

Wide receivers were not the only players injured on Sunday. Linebacker Jonathan Casillas (burner) and safety Landon Collins (sprained ankle) are day-to-day.
The Giants finished Sunday’s game with only one wide receiver, Roger Lewis Jr. They are reportedly adding wide receivers Travis Rudolph and Tavarres King to the 53-man roster. Rudolph was on the practice squad and King was waived earlier in the season.
