Jay Glazer of Fox Sports is reporting that the New York Giants have fined star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. over his comments to ESPN’s Josina Anderson last week.

Those comments, that Beckham wanted his teammates to match his energy and passion, that he wasn't happy with the check down-happy offense, and what some considered an attack at Eli Manning drew sharp criticism over the last few days.

Head coach Pat Shurmur said after the game that the matter had been handled internally. He even made a rare showing of emotion to reporters when pressed on the issue in the post-game press conference.

We will see if the matter is truly in the past or if there will be any residual impacts.
