Odell Beckham traveled to Dallas, may still sit vs. Cowboys

Odell Beckham traveled to Dallas, may still sit vs. Cowboys

The three-time Pro Bowler is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report and is expected to be a game-time decision.

"I'm extremely comfortable with him", Lee said. Then, Elliott was granted a preliminary injunction Friday as the case plays out in court, meaning that he'll be able to stay on the field for the foreseeable future (much like Tom Brady was able to play in 2015 while facing a four-game suspension for Deflategate).

As for the Cowboys, they are led by second-year studs Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot. NY made a splash last season thanks in large part to their defense and they are among a handful of teams that are considered to be a contender for the Lombardi Trophy this season as they have the personnel and pedigree to win a championship.

The news the Dallas Cowboys did not want to hear came down on Wednesday when an National Football League arbiter upheld the six-game suspension of running back Ezekiel Elliott following accusations of domestic violence. The game probably doesn't get away one way or another on that side.

Beckham and the Giants have been closely guarding his status since he sprained his left ankle on a low hit by Cleveland cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun in an August 21 preseason game. Landon Collins, Eli Apple, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins are four reasons why NY has one of the best defensive backfields in the NFL. NY added more weapons this off-season to pair with OBJ.

Giants are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on fieldturf. Without him, the QB turns to new additions Brandon Marshall and Evan Engram, hopeful he can create some of the chemistry he has with Beckham (as well as slot receiver Sterling Shepard). "We just need to take care of the ball, and this can be an explosive offense, one that can hopefully win us a championship".

Coach Ben McAdoo said all along that if the Giants' medical staff cleared Beckham, he would play on Sunday.

Beckham is dealing with a high-ankle and did not practice this week for the Giants. Beckham has caught at least 90 passes, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns in his first three seasons. They have more than enough talent to fill in for Beckham as Eli Manning's favorite targets.
