Surgery Likely for Beckham Jr.; Giants Also Lose Marshall and Shepard
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle, leg) will have surgery after injuring his leg in the Week 5 loss to the Chargers. It looked as though OBJ may have broken his leg, as it was bent awkwardly underneath a Chargers defender, and Beckham was in tears while being carted off the field. It’s an extremely tough break for Beckham, his owners and the Giants offense as a whole, especially since receivers Brandon Marshall (ankle), Sterling Shepard (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (foot) were hurt Sunday, too. At least Beckham was able to catch five passes for 97 yards and a touchdown in what could likely being his last for his owners in 2017. With New York’s passing corps all hurt, Roger Lewis is the No. 1 option at wideout now, with rookie tight end Evan Engram expected to see a lot of looks moving forward. Running back Shane Vereen‘s value increases significantly now, too, but it’ll be really hard to trust anyone on this offense moving forward.
