The Giants second-year head coach said the plan is to "take it day by day" with the two receivers, but ESPN's Jordan Raanan and Dan Graziano report that Beckham could be in jeopardy of missing the team's regular season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on September 10 due to his sprained ankle.
McAdoo didn't elaborate if Beckham sustained a high or low ankle sprain on a hit by Cleveland defensive back Briean Boddy-Calhoun during a 10-6 loss to the Browns in a preseason game on Monday night.
Speaking on a conference call, McAdoo refused to say whether Beckham had a high ankle sprain, which usually takes longer to recover from. Despite displaying encouraging signs by jogging after the hit, Beckham felt "very sore" Tuesday, per the ESPN tandem, and should probably be considered out for Big Blue's third preseason game. Beckham didn't participate in the team's OTAs during spring because he wants a new contract.
The Giants' offense is McAdoo's baby, so this is the last thing he wants and it's what he plans all offseason to avoid. His response was that he felt like he should be the highest paid player in the National Football League but it was also something that he was not focused on and he leaves those issues up to his agents.
Our models project Beckham as the third-best wide out in fantasy for 2017 with 1,359.4 yards and 10.9 touchdowns, if he plays a full 16 games.
Beckham was present in the locker room and during team meetings Wednesday.
Marshall's injury occurred on the Giants' second possession.
He's got an ankle, Beckham does.
