New York Giants 'Optimistic' Odell Beckham Jr. Will Play Monday Night

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. speaks with reporters in the locker room at NFL football team's training facility, Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017, in East Rutherford, N.J. Beckham, who has not practiced since spraining his ankle in a preseason game on August 21, took the next step in his recovery from a sprained left ankle by participating in the individual segment of practice.

It's what you'd expect to hear happened when the two ran into each other on a stage, it's just a shame we don't have any video of the dance-off.

Despite his status and recent injury reveal, Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell says his team will prepare as if Beckham's starts on Monday night. - Sam Bradford has been named one of the Minnesota Vikings' captains, an obviously natural selection as the quarterback. Top corner Janoris Jenkins, who had his right hand wrapped after Sunday's loss, also was listed on Thursday's initial injury report with an ankle injury. I know how stuff works now. At least, that's what it looked like to me because it was going right down the middle. Thankfully, he was able to get one in the game's final seconds.

The first pick in the 2010 draft by St. Louis, Bradford never truly found his footing there with some weak supporting casts and major injuries that squelched his progress. Then he was dealt to Philadelphia in 2015 and to Minnesota in 2016.

"I owe you my career".

"We anticipate he will play", Caldwell said during a conference call. "And even knowing I wasn't in the best position to play, there was still that temptation - and maybe it might have been growth for me to be like, 'I'm gonna actually have to rest up and make that decision, because everything in me was like, 'We're here. But at the moment, we don't know". "But certainly if we don't execute well, it certainly gives them the opportunity to capitalize".

The ending was reminiscent of last year's opener in Denver, when the Broncos escaped with a 21-20 win over the Carolina Panthers in a Super Bowl 50 reunion when Graham Gano missed a 50-yard field goal with 4 seconds left. If you confidently drafted Darren McFadden (like I did) and are in need of a solid replacement, Vereen should fit the bill given his versatility and his usefulness in alleviating pressure off of Manning.
