Odell Beckham ruled out vs. Titans

New, comments

Quad injury will keep him out for second straight week

The New York Giants will be without star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. once again on Sunday. Beckham, who also missed last Sunday’s game vs. the Washington Redskins, has been ruled out of this weekend’s game vs. the Tennessee Titans due to his lingering quad issue.

“He just can’t go,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “No setbacks, just can’t go.”

Beckham originally injured the quad when he was kicked on the final play of the Week 12 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He sought a second opinion this week. Beckham did not practice Thursday or Friday.

“He’s a very valued member of this team, but the challenge is for the guys playing in his place to do a good job, and it’s a one-game basis, but the guys that did it last week did a good job,” Shurmur said of replacing Beckham. “So there’s something to be learned from the experience that comes with that.”

The quad injury has been referred to as a bruise, but appears to be more severe than a simple bruise.

Shurmur reportedly said that no determination has yet been made on Beckham’s status for the final two games of the season.

NOTE: Offensive tackle Nate Solder was listed as limited in Friday’s practice with an abdomen issue. He is expected to play Sunday.
