2 days ago, there was little hope #NYG WR Odell Beckham would play vs. #Cowboys. Thanks to round-the-clock rehab, he's now a game-time call

High-ankle sprains like Odell Beckham suffered can take 4 weeks to heal. Today marks fewer than 3. But there's more optimism today than Fri.
Describing it as a high ankle sprain gives me less hope

Than the feeling Odell is that much better today than Friday.
No need to rush back and get

re-injured, stay on the bike and chill....
Could be a blessing in disguise

if he doesn't play. This team really needs to figure out how to move the ball without him on the field - Beckham can't be the only reliable source for production for this offense if they are to go anywhere.

There is no blessing in disguise when it comes to losing an elite WR. Now Dallas can play single coverage across the board and bring S's closer to line of scrimmage to stop the run because they don't have to worry about Odell Beckham Jr. The place to figure out how to run an offense without him is practice or preseason, not Week 1 in Dallas.
no blessing at all

and this is frankly only even an issue/debate because we are opening up (yet a-fuckin-gain) against a divisional rival expected to compete with us for the division title.

At this point gotta sit him and hope he's able to come back next week with the extra day rest against Detroit.
How can

losing one of the most explosive players in the league be a 'blessing in disguise'?
I think

he's out, too. If so, he will be missed. Marshall & Shepard don't take the top off a defense . The Cowboys will use more pressures if he doesn't play. Hard to get a feel for how McAdoo will use Engram against their D. Find out soon.

But consider that Marshall & Shepard are complimentary players. By their lonesome, they are not winning anything. It would be nice to see the running game jell in Werk 1, instead of Week 13, for a change. That would certainly help.
So do you think

Cowboy fans are saying they wish they got play the Giants 'at full strength'?
Bit of a slight to say Marshall is a complementary player

He's one year removed from 1500 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.

It's not asking a lot for him to be the #1 receiver for one game.
