SportGiants rule out Odell Beckham Jr. for Sunday
Odell Beckham Jr. throws shade at Giants coaches again, says attacking Eagles secondary 'wasn't in our game plan'
The New York Giants suffered yet another disappointing loss Sunday, choking away a 19-3 halftime lead against the Philadelphia Eagles on their way to a 25-22 loss and a 3-8 record. It wasn’t a great day for a widely criticized coaching staff, to the point that Giants star Odell Beckham Jr. was telling reporters what he wished the team had done after the game. Odell Beckham: “Knowing they were struggling (with injuries) in the secondary, personally I would’ve loved to attack them. But that wasn’t in our game plan.
The Giants’ offense has been playing better in recent weeks, but on Sunday they’ll have to do it without their star wide receiver.
Jr. has been ruled out for Sunday’s game and is not making the trip to Washington, the team has announced.
Beckham had been listed as questionable with a quadriceps injury. It’s unclear whether he suffered any type of setback, or whether the Giants just decided to play it safe. Considering that they’re already out of playoff contention, it would make sense not to risk an injury to the player who just signed a five-year, $95 million contract this year.
Although the Giants are 3.5-point favorites on the road against a Washington team that is down to third-string quarterbackas the starter, the absence of Beckham gives Washington new hope, and a win would keep Washington alive in the NFC East.

Pat Shurmur had to deny that a comment about hydration during an interview this week was a jab at Odell Beckham Jr., which in and of itself is a sad indication of how the New York Giants’ season has gone completely off the rails.
