There has been some speculation that Beckham has been dealing with a high ankle sprain, which can typically take up to 6 weeks to heal. It’s been close to three weeks since the injury, so the hope is that he will be able to make his way back to the field sometime in the coming weeks.
It’s unfortunate that he won’t be available for Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys — a Giants’ division rival.
