Surgery on Odell Beckham's leg is expected, source confirms. Whether that's now, tonight or tomorrow morning, I'm not sure. But expected.
What about the GIANTS?

He won't be the same player again  
Bluesbreaker : 10/8/2017 5:12 pm : link
wow this team sure knows how to fuck up a wet dream .
I hated the play call they sit on those slants because we
can't run much of anything else . there are always 3-4 guys
wanting to take your head off on those slants .
This is the worst system I have ever seen its a crummy concept that few QB's can run .

Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. fractured his ankle. He could have surgery but no decision yet.
Maybe this isn't the time  
BlackLight : 10/8/2017 5:16 pm : link
but does the team still re-sign Odell in the offseason, or allow him to play out the last year of his deal before making a real offer?

#Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. has a fracture in his left ankle. No decision made on surgery yet. So report premature, team says.

This is some serious good news if true. Of course he could have a fx ankle and ligament damage....

Depends on what part of the fibula. A distal fibula fracture can cause problems with the ankle. Proximal fibula can be risky for nerve damage. That being said if you fracture the shaft of the fibula it is usually stable and less problematic because it's non-weight bearing bone.
If it's the same ankle as before  
BlackLight : 10/8/2017 5:22 pm : link
than the ligament damage was already there from the H.A.S. O

Only question is whether this injury made it worse, or if it only resulted in the fracture.

If he did not suffer Lig damage

In the long wouldn't a fracture be a more preferred injury than a high ankle sprain? I know they are around the same time for healing but the Sprain can linger for weeks

Too bad we don't play the Browns. To get pay back on Boddy-Calhoun. His ankle was not 100% before he broke it.

I had a compound fracture of the fibula  
David B. : 10/8/2017 5:28 pm : link
playing hockey at age 38. Snapped it right above the skate boot.
They'll put a plate in and his bone will be just fine in 8-12 weeks.

The question is how much of his ligaments he blew out. He will have to rehab that. For me, at 38, I got back to roughly 98% of what it was prior to the injury and was back on skates the next season. It was never the same, but mostly OK, just cranky from time to time.

He will likely rehab and heal much better at his age. Hopefully the ligament thing isn't too bad.

It's probably still better than if it were a knee.

Why? Itís a true statement about the reality of economics in the NFL.
A player breaks his leg in the regular season  
Go Terps : 10/8/2017 5:42 pm : link
so no one should go to OTA's?

If you want an economic reality, here it is: it's a good thing we didn't pay Beckham.

Itís a good thing we didnít trade Strahan for a 5th round pick too. Why do you think the cap is this horrible thing that paying Beckham will completely ruin the team? We can very well afford to pay Beckham and field a perfectly competent football team provided Reese doesnít kill us by drafting gems like Apple and Flowers.
You have to assume OBJ is out for the year  
SGMen : 10/8/2017 5:50 pm : link
And if he is out for the year this offense will sputter badly.

3 - 13 is a real possibility now. Especially if Shepard and Marshall are out for any period of time as well. Just a bad luck season.

No, it's not. A player in his position is in line for a legit payday. He's still on a rookie deal.

Donte Fowler tore his ACL in mini-camp before he even played a down in the NFL.

A player in Beckham's situation is more than justified in not attending OTA's and trying to protect himself. He could have done what Donald did, but he didn't.

But sure.. it's "unbelievably stupid" because you hate the player.

Who said no one should go to OTAs? Despite all of your attempts to ignore this, Odell wasn't just some average player. He was perhaps the most productive player in the sport and was being paid a fraction of what he was worth to the team. Exceedingly productive players should be paid and if their only recourse involves not subjecting themselves to hits and possible injury, so be it.

Yeah, both Mike Florio and Chris Simms were strong advocates of:
a) a Beckham holdout, and
B) a strong Giants extension offer

What a douche comment. The best player on the team just suffered a serious injury and some are wondering how it might affect his future. That's about the team, not just the player. And discussing a player's desire to get his payday because of the inherent risks involved in the game is absolutely relevant.

Your next contribution of any value will be your first. Fucking weird.
