For the second day in a row, Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. sat out of New York's practice leading up to the team's Monday Night Football game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Beckham Jr. is still dealing with a hamstring injury he suffered during the Giants' win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football.
Beckham missing two days of practice is significant because all that's left for the Giants is a walk-through session on Sunday. New York head coach Tom Coughlin did say that Beckham might be able to show enough during Sunday's practice to play on Monday night.
Despite the fact that Beckham's status is uncertain, the Eagles are fully expecting Beckham to play.
Chip Kelly: Our approach is Odell Beckham is playing. We'll see 13 on Monday night. He's a very competitive player. He's playing— Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) October 16, 2015
Beckham is obviously a huge part of the Giants' offense. The second-year receiver has 31 receptions for 428 yards (13.8 average) and three touchdowns through five games. The Eagles would catch a huge break if he doesn't end up playing.
Even if Beckham does play, it remains to be seen if Beckham's injury will have an impact on his performance.
