Draft Scout News
08/29/14 - WR Odell Beckham, Jr. will ultimately get an opportunity to return punts for the Giants. Beckham has been unable to practice much this spring and summer because of a lingering hamstring issue.
08/15/14 - WR Odell Beckham, Jr. (hamstring) returned to practice on a limited basis. Beckham, who hasn't participated in a full practice since Day 2 of camp, continues to increase his workload a little each day, but will not play on Saturday against the Colts.
08/11/14 - WR Odell Beckham, Jr. who has been sidelined with a hamstring strain since the first day of camp, will work in individual drills to start the week, pending further evaluation.
07/30/14 - As receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. continues to miss practices with a sore hamstring, it became evident to reporters that each day head coach Tom Coughlin's frustration with the rookie was growing.
So Coughlin and Beckham did something about it - they met on Monday to clear the air and to get on the same page.
"We just had a discussion. Just player-coach, trying to get to know each other a little better," Coughlin said when asked to characterize the meeting.
"I see his frustration and he sees our frustration. But don't make it more than what it is. It's a coach wanting a player on the field and a player wanting a player on the field."
Beckham underwent tests on his hamstring on Monday to determine the extent of the injury. He told reporters that tests revealed "heavy inflammation and blood in the hamstring, but characterized his situation as being "day to day."
06/18/14 - WR Odell Beckham, Jr., the Giants' first-round pick from LSU, finally returned to practice without limitations Wednesday for the first time after missing at least the last week and a half of OTAs with a balky hamstring.
Beckham, who was held out of the 11-on-11 portion of practice Tuesday, said after Wednesday's session that he is still only at about 85 percent with his hamstring, although he didn't seem slowed by the injury at all.
So what made head coach Tom Coughlin, who initially seemed content with letting Beckham sit out the rest of the minicamp, change his mind?
"When he came out of the locker room and sprinted from there to that car over there," Coughlin said, pointing to a car parked at least a football field away from the locker-room entrance. "I thought, 'Well, maybe he can run 20 yards today.'"
