Surgery Likely for Beckham Jr.; Giants Also Lose Marshall and Shepard

This article first appeared on

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.
