Giants WR Beckham returns to practice

New York Giants Eli Manning

Odell Beckham Jr.is inching towards an actual game. Manning is a good enough quarterback to get him the ball early and often when he's on target.

The alarming nature of Beckham's timeline of course elicited follow-up questions. "I don't know how long it is".

"I think there is more urgency to go out there and do what we got to do", he said when asked about the mood of the offense after watching the game film. It could be 4-to-12 weeks.

Contract negotiations are always complex waters to navigate, but in just one game the Giants got a taste of what their fortunes might be without their best player, and Beckham was put an extremely powerful position to negotiating from. 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. You never know. Everybody heals differently ...

"We just have to slow down - everybody take a breath and just run the plays the way we've been running them all spring and all summer". You can see Dak Prescott also take a partial drop to try and further fool the defense into thinking it's a pass. Beckham is considered by the team to be day to day. At least, that's what it looked like to me because it was going right down the middle. And that's one game.

"First game", the two-time Super Bowl MVP said. "You've got 15 more to prove yourself".

However, most of the problems the Giants had were self-inflicted. It's easy for the Giants' front seven to not have their hands too full with the Lions' offensive line, and it's more than likely that they won't.

Meanwhile, linebacker Keenan Robinson (concussion) and right tackle Bobby Hart (ankle) were the only two players who did not participate in practice. Robinson did not play in Week 1.

The Giants' top playmaker is making progress as he practiced Thursday for the first time since the injury.

During McVay's three seasons as offensive coordinator and two as play-caller, Cousins became a full-time National Football League starting quarterback and set and broke the franchise record for passing yards.
