If Beckham were to miss the first two weeks of the regular season, the Giants could find themselves in a bit of a predicament.

The hit was scary and many wondered about the severity of the injury after Beckham ripped off his helmet following the play. Perhaps he is coming to the realization that his 2017 offense so far looks too much like his 2016 offense, and he knows an National Football League offense can't just flip a switch when it wants to and morph into something it's not.

Beckham returned to the sideline out of his uniform and in a hoodie for the second half and jogged into the locker room after the contest.

Odell Beckham Jr. laughed off a question about whether he would miss the Giants' season opener after the injury he suffered in Monday night's preseason game against the Browns. They're definitely a big part of the offense. Over the first three years of his career, the former first-round pick out of LSU has 288 receptions, 4,122 yards and 35 TDs.

"I know what Odell brings to the table", McAdoo said Tuesday. He's been a good, productive player for us in the offseason and camp. "That's a medical decision".

Quarterback Eli Manning needs Beckham fully healthy for the Giants to get back to the postseason and build on their 11-5 record in 2016. The Giants also had Tavarres King and Dwayne Harris on the injury report, but both of them were running on the side. While Geno Smith got much more playing time than Josh Johnson in the fight for the backup QB job, McAdoo said the competition is still open. He would say only of absent corner Valentino Blake that "we had a couple guys we had to leave inside today, and we'll leave it at that".
