Star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. continues to miss the New York Giants’ practices because of a left hamstring injury. It’s the same injury that sidelined him for some games last season.
"I think he's just trying to be smart and doesn't want to push this thing any further than he has to," Giants quarterback Eli Manning said via ESPN, referring to Beckham’s injury. "After what we went through last year, we don't want him missing training camp or any games next season."
Giants head coach Tom Coughlin had no time table for Beckham's probable return. An NFL.com report added that Beckham is most likely to miss the organized team activities and the mandatory minicamp set next week. However, Beckham is pegged to be healthy when training camp opens.
The 22-year-old Beckham, who missed 4 of 16 games in the 2014 regular season, was the league’s rookie of the year last season. He set many rookie franchise records in 2014, including most receiving yards at 1,305 and most receptions at 91. Beckham had 12 receiving touchdowns in 2014.
Beckham, who was selected as the 12th overall pick by the Giants in the 2014 NFL Draft, was also named to the NFL Pro Bowl in his rookie season.
