WR Odell Beckham Jr.
October 20, 2016
Q: Odell, how is your health?
A: Better than yesterday. So just keep it going from there and see how we feel.
Q: What is the exact nature of the injury?
A: Ab, hip, somewhere in that area.
Q: Anything you have to do on the plane over to London to not stiffen up?
A: Just make sure you stretch, get up, move around a little bit. It is going to be tough. I tend to sleep on the plane. It is really the only time I can get away from everybody, everything and all the outside stuff that goes on.
Q: Are you looking forward to playing across the pond?
A: I am. It is unfortunate that this is going on right now, but it is the case. I have been looking forward to this since I saw it on the schedule. I took some visits this off-season to London, did a couple things for NFL UK, so I am excited about the opportunity. I am just trying to get better day by day.
Q: Based on how you feel, do you think you will play?
A: I feel better than yesterday, so we will see.
Q: Having the experience overseas. What kind of reception do you expect?
A: I think it is going to be very welcoming. The love that they have for football over there Ė football, as in soccer, and what they are trying to do to integrate it into American football is pretty incredible what they are doing. I feel like it is going to be a very welcoming reception for both teams as well. I think they are excited about it and we are looking forward to the opportunity as well.
Q: Did you get the sense over there that people knew who the New York Giants were?
A: Yeah there were Giants jerseys over there. From when I went over there, there were a lot of Giants fans, so I donít know who their team is over there. I think they are more so just excited about football.
Q: Are you excited about the offense following through on what you did the last game?
A: Yeah, you want to use that as a stepping stone, you want to keep improving from there, keep setting the bar higher and higher and get better each and every day. We have watched the practice film and it looked like we have had a very good week of practice in all phases. It is a tough challenge ahead. The Rams are playing at a high level right now. They are a good team and they have some good guys over there, so it is going to be a tough challenge.
Q: How does it feel to be the NFC Offensive Player of the Week?
A: It feels good, man. I am just trying to get healthy enough to play this week and that is really all that I am looking forward to.
Q: Do you have anything crazy that you want to say?
A: Nothing crazy, man.
Q: Were you aware of Eliís comments about the net?
A: It is funny. The joke was on me, and now it is more so on you all. You donít like that I mess around with the kicking net now, after it was a lot of fun recently, and now it is not so much fun, because I have had a lot of fun with it. So it is pretty funny to me, still pretty funny to me.
Q: Some people say that you have to cut it out.
A: I am just here to play football.
