Beckham (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Beckham will be held out for the fourth game in a row, which brings his season to a close. Despite only playing in 12 games this year, Beckham still managed to top the 1,000-yard mark for the fourth time in five seasons as a pro. He will have plenty of time to get back to 100 percent before next season begins, but his health will likely still be part of the conversation next time fantasy drafts are held, as he has now missed 21 games in his career, including 16 over the last two seasons. It also remains to be seen who will be throwing passes to Beckham in 2019, as the Giants could decide to part ways with Eli Manning. Despite all that, Beckham remains an elite talent, and still figures to be one of the first receivers off the board in nearly every format.
Beckham (quadriceps) isn't expected to play Week 17 against the Cowboys as he was on the side without a helmet at practice Friday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
It looks as though Beckham will have three DNPs at practice this week, making it difficult to see any path for him being available Sunday. The Giants' star wide receiver has missed the last three games and seems likely to be ruled out when the team releases their official injury report following Friday's practice. Russell Shepard (ankle) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) also weren't seen at practice, which should lead to plenty of targets for the likes of Sterling Shepard (hip), Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley.
Beckham (quadriceps) was held out of Thursday's practice, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
After back-to-back DNPs to open Week 17 prep, Beckham seems more likely than not to miss a fourth game in a row to wrap up the 2018 campaign. The Giants may confirm as much well before the release of inactives for the season finale, as they've done with Beckham for each of the past three contests. With Russell Shepard (ankle) also trending in the wrong direction, the trio of Sterling Shepard (hip), Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley can prepare for a healthy dose of targets yet again.
Head coach Pat Shurmur does not expect Beckham (quad) to participate in Thursday's practice, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Beckham has been absent from the Giants' previous three games while nursing a quad injury, and it's looking more and more unlikely that the star wideout will be able to return for the Giants' regular-season finale. With the team having nothing to play for in the final week of the season, it would make sense if it elected to err on the side of caution with the prized wide receiver, but more information on that should come into light based on whether or not Beckham is able to participate in Friday's session.
Coach Pat Shurmur said Beckham (quadriceps) isn't expected to practice Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Beckham has missed the Giants' last three games and hasn't logged even a limited practice since Dec. 12, so he'll need to show some meaningful progress over the next couple days to have a realistic shot at suiting up for the season finale Sunday against the Cowboys. Per Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, Shumur only said "there's a chance" that Beckham will play in Week 17, so the Giants may be inclined to err on the side of caution if they're not convinced the wideout is close to 100 percent health. Another absence from Beckham would open up more volume in the passing game for fellow receiver Sterling Shepard and top tight end Evan Engram.
