Odell Beckham will fly with the Giants to Dallas today. After that, expect him to be a game-time decision.

We already knew this

Odell was always flying to game.
If he's not 100%

I wouldn't risk playing him.
Surprising.

I thought they'd make him walk with him bum ankle.
After flying all the way to Dallas

Massgman : 9/9/2017 11:51 am : link
come to a game-time decision then sit him for another week. Why risk having this linger for the rest of the year. They'd be idiots to risk it
He said he go by boat if they didn't take him!

Nah man, he didn't practice yesterday so that already means he's ruled out.

He's certainly not 100%, but could still be effective at 85-90%. We'll see!

just needs a soap opera beforehand

If this was so serious he wouldn't have been traveling in preseason, dancing in the locker room on video, and we probably would've seen some sort of boot/brace.

He's fine. Doesn't need to practice.

That would mean that Beckham submits his own injury reports.

annexOPR : 9/9/2017 12:45 pm : link
If your franchise player had an ankle injury you were concerned with, would you have him traveling with the team for a meaningless preseason game? Wouldn't you have some sort of brace/boot on the ankle? Would you have him return to the sidelines of a preseason game he was injured in?

He's getting as much rest as possible prior to a huge division game. He does not need to practice - he's caught a pass or 2 from Eli before.

BMc has been playing the Cowboys like a concert pianist.

Biggest smoke screen ever. ODB could climb Mount Everest on his ankle. BMc lulled the Cowboys to sleep. ODB is going to fire off like a missile tomorrow.

Exactly. His mere presence impacts the game. Let Engram do the heavily lifting up the middle.
He's playing.

His competitive juices will start flowing.
He may be on a pitch count.  
section125 : 9/9/2017 1:08 pm : link
3rd and long, etc. He could draw coverage and free up Marshall, Shepard, Engram ....
love the guy but

...the press has this story for a very simple reason.

The Giants want the press to have this story to keep Dallas guessing.

But my money is on OBJ watching the game from the sidelines, unless he suits up as a decoy for the first quarter.

Well, the guy that was on with Francesa and the Twitter doc say it's a high ankle sprain so I'd trust them.
Put OBJ on the field, even if he's 75%  
PatersonPlank : 9/9/2017 1:31 pm : link
Make them cover him, then throw it at will to Marshall and EE.
If this is a lingering issue  
joeinpa : 9/9/2017 1:32 pm : link
Sooner or later he ll have to play at less than 100%

Josie Long on Cowherd yesterday in response to Cowherd asking, "why play him if he s less than 100%", answered.

"The last time I was 100% was when I was 17."
from a few days ago ...

"Word is Odell Beckham looks good at practice today; No brace or tape on ankle, warmed up with team, then worked on side. But looked good."

I agree.
He was always making the trip...  
EricJ : 9/9/2017 2:24 pm : link
and I would question McAdoo's decision making if OBJ did not get on the plane. The last thing you want to do is help Dallas to prepare.

Reportedly, he was at least Step 7 earlier in the week - seen jogging on the sidelines. Whether he was able to clear the final 3 steps is anyone's guess.

He would have found some lady at the supermarket or on the street, pulled her top off, and then smacked her around a little bit.

Beckham knows how his ankle feels - not the doctors - internet or team, not the coaches, not the fans. I think he would want to go to Dallas regardless of whether he intended to play or not so no surprise there. He knows what's at stake (divisional game, that he could set his recovery back if he does too much, too soon, etc.), he knows what he is capable of and I think he will make the right decision taking the individual game and the big picture of the full season into consideration. I think he will play but if he doesn't, so be it.
I don't think he'll play ...  
Manny in CA : 9/9/2017 5:48 pm : link

I see King starting, with maybe even Engram playing a bit of WR.

No way  
Giantfan in skinland : 9/9/2017 8:42 pm : link
Macadoo thought the best way to prepare for Dallas was to have OBJ not practice for three weeks before the game just to play possum. If it were so clear he was playing, he'd have gotten some work in at least once this week. The idea that the possibility of beckham not playing somehow makes dallas' life harder seems far fetched to me. If anything, it's the opposite...i.e., the Giants are pretending he might play when they've already decided he won't. To me, the most likely scenario is exactly what they've said....he's close and they'll test it tomorrow to decide.

you dont know if he practiced today, plus most of the work preparing is more in the film roon rather than on the field
agree that odb is playing  
federer70 : 9/9/2017 9:39 pm : link
and totally agree he was always playing :-). that this was all soap opera drama to justify his reaction on the day he got injured. couldn't have him come back to practice when he reacted like that :-). we'll win tomorrow, but it'll be ugly and close as always probably :-)
