October 2, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: Everyone on the 53-man roster practiced on Thursday.
LB Jon Beason (foot/ankle), LB Devon Kennard (hamstring), WR Odell Beckham (hamstring), and P Steve Weatherford (left ankle) practiced on a limited basis.
Beason was asked if he would play on Sunday. “Yeah, I think so,” responded Beason. “Initially, it is the pain, but then once the pain subsides a little bit, it is about how the toe functions. The big toe is everything. It is weight-bearing, you pivot, you plant on it, you push against another man when you tackle somebody or when you take on a block. It is huge. There are things we can do to compensate for it, and hopefully I can go out and be productive.”
“Odell Beckham, Jr. has had a good couple days of practice,” said Offensive Coordinator Ben McAoo. “Today was his third day this week, we had some work on Monday, he’s looked good, it’s nice to have him out here. He has a unique skill set, we like the way he can get in and out of routes. He has some explosiveness to him, he plucks the ball pretty well. It will be his first game action, so it will nice to see him out there…He would just be a nice guy to add to the mix.”
