Lack of Giants' offensive improvements beginning to wear thin on Ben McAdoo

Lack of Giants' offensive improvements beginning to wear thin on Ben McAdoo”

According to an ESPN report, Odell Beckham Jr.'s damaged left ankle may prevent him from playing in the Giants' opener at Dallas on September 10.

It's "not out of the question he could miss a week or two of the regular season", the duo quoted a source as saying, as it pertains to Beckham's injury.

New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. exited his team's preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on Monday after he was hit low by Briean Boddy-Calhoun.

Although Beckham's x-rays came back negative and head coach Ben McAdoo didn't imply the MRI showed anything of major concern, it remains possible that the superstar wideout not only misses Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys, but Week 2 against the Detroit Lions as well. Per ESPN's Dan Graziano, Beckham's ankle injury could be slightly more serious than most thought.

"You kind of not want to think about that", cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie said.

Tamil Nadu CM Palaniswami orders judicial inquiry into Jayalalithaa's death
AIADMK leader PH Pandian, now Panneerselvam loyalist had raised several suspicions over Jayalalithaa's death in February. However, CM Palaniswami just stopped short of saying that he was conceding to the demands of the Panneerselvam camp.

The Giants' offense is McAdoo's baby, so this is the last thing he wants and it's what he plans all offseason to avoid. Beckham nearly certainly will not play in the preseason game against the Jets on Saturday, which is expected to be a dress rehearsal for the regular season opener.

McAdoo also gave a nod to his verbiage of choice regarding Beckham when briefly discussing Darius Powe, a second-year receiver who was waived/injured by the Giants Wednesday.

Beckham was present in the locker room and during team meetings Wednesday. After all, he didn't have an ankle nor was he in there getting treatment.

One of the biggest topics of the National Football League this offseason was, will the New York Giants offer Beckham a pretty hefty contract extension?

"Roger had a great day of practice".
