“S—t ain’t right,” is how Odell Beckham describes his injury

New, comments

Whatever is going on here, this can’t just be about a quad bruise

Odell Beckham Jr. spoke to media Thursday after spending the morning at the Hospital for Special Surgery getting a second opinion on the injured quad that kept him out of Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.

Beckham had a succinct description for whatever the injury is:

“S—t ain’t right.”

Beckham called his trip to HSS “a nice little field trip.”

“We just went in, got it scanned just to see everything and it’s doing much better than it was,” Beckham said. “Just taking it a day at a time, that’s really it.”

Beckham did not practice Thursday, casting doubt on his status for this Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.

“I honestly don’t know until Sunday gets here,” Beckham said. “It’s just been getting better each and every day so just got to figure out what it was. Kind of happened the last play of the Eagles game and I don’t know, whatever you want to call it, whatever did it and it’s kind of ever since then been lingering around. I just kind of played through it and then it’s just aggravated, so we just went in, took some looks, get some tests, want to see exactly what was going on.”

Beckham sustained the injury when he was leg-whipped on the final play against the Philadelphia Eagles more than two weeks ago. He played the following week against the Chicago Bears, but showed up on the injury report late last week and was held out of Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.

Beckham practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, participating only in individual drills.

The injury has been referred to as a bruise. At this point, though, you begin to wonder if it isn’t something more severe than that. And if perhaps the reports that wide receiver Cody Latimer could be activated from IR next week might be protection for the Beckham situation.
