Odell Beckham Jr. missed practice again on Thursday for the New York Giants as they prepare for their season-opening game on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. That would seem to cast doubt on whether Beckham (ankle) will be ready to play Sunday.
On Wednesday, Beckham stretched with the team and worked on the side. On Thursday, he again worked separately.

Beckham has been seen running, but not doing any cutting or jumping.
On Wednesday, Beckham said he was “itching” to play and “wouldn’t count it out.”
The Giants have indicated that Beckham could play even if he doesn’t practice.
On Wednesday, coach Ben McAdoo said of Beckham that “if he is cleared medically to play in the game, we will play him. If not, we won’t.”
Linebacker Keenan Robinson (concussion) was the only other Giant who did not practice on Thursday.
Other players on the injury report — CB Eli Apple (ankle), WR Tavarres King (ankle), CB Michael Hunter (concussion), FB Shane Smith (quad) and DT Jay Bromley (knee) were full practice participants.
