Injury updates for Giants' top wide receivers

Injury updates for Giants' top wide receivers

The Giants confirmed the injury following New York's 27-22 defeat to the Chargers.

"Back to work", coach Ben McAdoo said. "It's a sad situation". The biggest of these injuries without question was Odell Beckham Jr. who is likely done for the season with a broken ankle according to Adam Schefter. The guys fought hard, the tight ends stepped up and went out and worked to execute the two-minute offense. "I'm filled with mixed emotions", Marshall wrote. I wasn't able to produce for my team the way I wanted to but this was my greatest year to date. Well without a running game to speak of, he leads the National Football League with 137 completed passes (career high through Week 5) on 202 attempts.

However, the pain was real for New York's receivers as four Giants receivers left the game against the Los Angeles Chargers with injuries.

Beckham was carted off the field Sunday after he landed and twisted his ankle underneath a hit from Chargers DB Casey Hayward with just over four minutes remaining in the game.

The latter shouldn't be overlooked because with Harris and Beckham both out, the Giants need help in the return game.

Fellow wideout Dwayne Harris, who is also the team's primary kick returner, was also placed on IR with a fractured fifth metatarsal that will be surgically repaired on Tuesday.

Kyrgios won the first three points but Johnson pulled back to level and umpire Fergus Murphy then gave Kyrgios a point penalty for an audible obscenity.

Clay was hurt while being tackled along the sideline after making a 24-yard catch in the first quarter against the Bengals.

Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard were hurt on the same series in the second quarter after falls trying to catch passes.

Shepard is listed day to day. He was waived by the Chargers and re-signed by the team later that season, joining the practice squad.

McAdoo was also asked if bringing in Victor Cruz, who was cut by the Bears before the season, was an option.

The touchdown pass was Rivers' third of the game and came three plays after Kyle Emanuel had a sack, forced fumble and recovery against Eli Manning at the Giants 11-yard line. In the receiving end, Michael Crabtree posted 82 yards and a touchdown in six receptions while Seth Roberts added 34 yards in two catches.

Beckham has reached the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons in the NFL, establishing himself as one of the league's most risky receivers. Beckham injured the same ankle in the preseason. He also was fined for pretending to urinate like a dog after a TD catch in Philadelphia on September 24. But with Perkins still out in Week 5, Darkwa returned and led the Giants in rushing (69 yards) and scored a touchdown. I'm proud to say that after 12 years I've finally became the man I knew I was suppose to be by confronting Adversity with a Smile.
