So OBJ hurt his hip? Doesnít sound serious, but who knows?

All of the screaming Odell Beckham Jr. fans in the stands at Grand Park were disappointed on Wednesday when the superstar receiver was held out of team drills with a hip injury, but Freddie Kitchens indicated itís nothing serious.

ďHeís got a little bit of something going on but we expect him back pretty soon,íí Kitchens said after the joint practice with the Colts.

ESPNís Dan Graziano reported itís a hip pointer, but itís actually a different injury, a team source told cleveland.com. Kitchens left open the possibility that Beckham could face the Colts in the second preseason game on Saturday.



Mary Cabot is a pretty good reporter, imo.

A full season from OBJ at this point.

Trust me, I wasnít even thinking about him or looking for news about him in the least. I was listening to Sirius during my workout and heard the hip blurb on the sports update. Hadnít seen anyone mention it so I thought I might have misheard and looked it up.
Healthy or not

I have believed for a couple of years that the Giants would not clean up the mess they have been until the got rid of Beckham

For me it was a good move trading him. I felt like that the second the trade was announced and I feel like that now.

luv always,

This should open people's eyes more to how great this trade worked  
NephilimGiants : 8/15/2019 9:40 am : link
Not only a huge salary dump, room for other players like Engram Tate and Shep to shine but also potential for 3 solid starters. Ximenes gives us hope at depth for passrush which was completly 0 after Carter, lawerence fixes our run D which was trash after Snacks left plus Peppers fills Colins leaving which is also a huge salary dump with much more potent. Meanwhile giants Offense produced the best last year since obj been on this team with obj playing mediocre stats that any decent receiver can put up for 1/3 the price
The injuries were a valid concern  
jcn56 : 8/15/2019 9:41 am : link
but it's preseason - this could be just an excuse to keep the guy off the field and away from contact. Can't make much of it until he misses time in the regular season.
Once WRs start getting hurt  
arniefez : 8/15/2019 9:42 am : link
they keep getting hurt. He's already lost the 1/2 step that had him in a class of own from the broken ankle. He's missed 50% of his games the past two years. He's still better than 95% of NFL receivers when he can play but his best days are behind him.

Also addition by subtraction. I think Shurmur's offense is at its best spreading it around to everyone. As is Eli's brain seems to function at his best when he does not have to calculate a unhinged emotionally distraught diva receiver as part of the equation.
Sounds like a reason to rest him  
ZogZerg : 8/15/2019 10:36 am : link
and skip game #2.

But, who knows.
Wow, we cant even label it

I think we should just combine the OBJ posts with the "Beal is Bust" posts

Like you said its preseason. You don't really need an "excuse" to keep stars off the field anymore.

I do agree that its too early to "gloat" about OBJ not staying healthy though.

Bingo. And Iíd be saying this if Beckham was still here. If he was a Giant today the number one thing Iíd be hoping for would be a full season out of him and a return to ďif weíre even, Iím leavinĒ ó we really havenít seen 2016 Beckham since.... well... 2016.
Nope. Giant fans will rue the day he was traded forever...  
x meadowlander : 8/15/2019 10:51 am : link
...as he becomes a leader-by-example, a mature, better version of himself with the childish antics of his days in blue long behind him, this is a NEW Odell Beckam Jr. and a NEW Cleveland Browns.

WATCH as OBJ shatters league records, collects numerous MVP and SB MVP awards in leading the Browns to become the next great NFL franchise.


:)


Naaaaaah.
Could be out a while  
Gman11 : 8/15/2019 10:55 am : link
After all, he got a boo-boo last year and missed the last four games.

Iíve said that on numerous occasions both here and in discussing OBJ outside. It remains to be seen if he indeed lose that 1/2 step or he needed more time to heal. Trading him when we did, besides all the side stuff, there was still a high market value. If it does prove out heís lost that step then Gettlemen traded him at the right time.
It all depends on his mood and the Browns season  
GiantBlue : 8/15/2019 12:19 pm : link
Winning and he is getting his chance to shine....he will be in there until they have to drag him off.

Unhappy, losing or mediocre and he will find a way to make it about him and miss some games.

Every day he gets another day older and the aches and pains start to intensify.........not wishing anything bad on him....but football careers are short!

serious proclaimed talent that has not lifted any team to great status beyond his own personal agenda. His runway is getting shorter, and better start producing this year. Otherwise, goodbye prima donna

I dunno. Kind of a Terrell Owens / Randy Moss player, different skillset, but similar disruptive temperament and I wouldn't be surprised to see him bounce around the league in similar fashion.

I was listening to Brian Westbrook talk about TO on the Lefkoe show and when he was mentioning the times when TO would argue with Andy Reid in front of the fans and everyone while signing autographs and how the team always had to answer questions about him when he wasn't there - I immediately thought of Odell when he was here. Westbrook basically said its really hard to win in the NFL with guys like that.

People love to act like "culture" isn't a thing because its not something tangible, so they easily dismiss it. But it is absolutely important and Odell was ruining it. I hope for his sake he doesn't do the same thing to the Browns.
doesn't sound like anything a shitload of

Guys usually lose a little bit the year after a major injury like that, but generally regain it back year 2 post injury. If he did lose that extra burst, it really is going to affect his game, its what makes him an elite WR.
He's gone. I wish him nothing but the best  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 8/15/2019 7:10 pm : link
unless he's playing us. Weird/ immature dude, but not a bad guy in terms of off the field stuff like Zeke, Hill, etc. He made some great plays here & was a joy to watch. I just wish he had done some more winning, but that's not solely on him.
Canít stay healthy
