Odell Beckham limited on Monday with sore hamstring

Victor Cruz, Odell Beckham Jr.


There are plenty of players who are slowed during the OTA period because of aches and pains that will be forgotten come training camp or even minicamp.

Many of those days off escape notice, but some catch the eye because of the injury history of the player involved. A hamstring issue that kept Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham out of team drills at Monday’s practice falls into that group.

Before Beckham took the league by storm as a rookie in 2014, he was an infrequent participant in Giants practices because of a hamstring injury that he suffered in the offseason and lingered long enough to keep him out of four regular season games. Beckham said after the year that he played through a pair of hamstring tears.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Beckham was held out on Monday because of a sore hamstring, but added that the problem was not the same one that caused Beckham to miss so much time last year. That should turn out to be good news for the Giants, although you wouldn’t blame anyone who will wait until he’s back on the field to stow away all of their concern.

The Giants were also without defensive end Robert Ayers, who has a sprained ankle, and tight end Larry Donnell, who is dealing with Achilles tendinitis.
