New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been held out of practice during OTAs, but on Monday head coach Pat Shurmur expressed optimism that OBJ will be cleared to participate next week during mandatory minicamp.
Beckham was not present at OTAs on Monday, but he did attend the team’s OTA sessions the first two weeks of the program. Shurmur also said he expects Beckham to attend mandatory minicamp.
The talented receiver continues to rehabilitate the ankle injury that cost him most of the 2017 season. This is a huge season for him and the Giants, as Beckham Jr. enters the final year of his rookie contract.
The team has consistently made it clear that OBJ needs to prove he’s matured, both on and off the field, to land the long-term deal he seeks, which will likely make him the highest-paid receiver in the game today.
