Giants WR Beckham sits out practice

Giants WR Beckham sits out practice

He spent most of the time on the sideline working with trainers.

And that's why it feels now, mid-week, as if Ben McAdoo and the Giants' doctors should rest Beckham for this Week 1 matchup: give Beckham more time to heal and don't risk losing your best player for the long term. He left open the option that the team's leading receiver the past three seasons does not need to practice to play, provided he gets the clearance. Beckham does not look ready to practice Thursday.

"All backs run the same when there's nowhere to run", McAdoo said, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

"The moment he walks in there, he's locked in and football's the only thing that's on his mind", Prescott said. He said "today was a good day".

"Anytime 13 is out there, it's good", cornerback Eli Apple said.

Beckham said he will not wear protective equipment to play.

The status of each team's best playmaker is a potential game changer. "He does great things, fantastic things". So the day of, it wasn't as bad, and the day after you wake up and it's pretty sore.

The Giants won both matchups with the Cowboys last season. "But (it's about) just patience and trusting". "This is what you love to do". They'd also have to find a way to get the running game going in that scenario. The chemistry and everything, we were just rolling. "I just know I'm in a good place". It's really how you come back from that, how you handle adversity.

Beckham, who did not attend the Giants' off-season workout, was having an outstanding training camp. Prescott is going to put up numbers, but the Cowboys' offense plays at a different level when Elliott is clicking on all cylinders.

Mr Trump's first stop was a shelter, where he visited a section reserved for child survivors and listened to their stories. Watt started a Houston Flood Relief Fund , through his foundation, with the initial goal of raising $200,000.

Beckham sprained his ankle against Cleveland on August 21, and the Giants have provided little information since. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast and Beckham was there.

I'd rather the safety hit me up high every single time than go low, but it's part of the game.

"No, I wouldn't have done anything any other way", Beckham said. "It is what it is". It's life. Take it on the chin.

Beckham said he has "done some running and cutting, " but he has not been given medical clearance to participate in practice.

Quarterback Eli Manning enters his 14th season in NY.

"If I've got to wear a brace or tape it I'm probably not gonna play", Beckham said. It's been two weeks (since the injury). Nothing is really going to change. "I can tell you when he's in there and he's in the locker room or he's at practice or in that film room, none of the outside world is going through his head". I wish we could have routes and this and that, etc. "My heart - it's just not going to make this easy. Whenever they clear you, you can go".

NOTES: G Justin Pugh said the homeless man who was stealing packages off his porch in Hoboken in recent weeks was arrested by Hudson County police.

"I'm itching to get out there, " he said.
