Injured Odell Beckham Jr. to miss Redskins match
An injury to Odell Beckham Jr. means the New York Giants will be missing a key part of their offense on Sunday when they face the Washington Redskins.
Beckham will miss the Week 14 matchup as he deals with a bruised quadriceps, the team announced.
He practiced on a limited basis during the week and, on Saturday, the team determined he would not play.
Beckham first appeared on the team’s injury report on Friday.
It will be a big loss for the Giants as Beckham has contributed significantly this season. He has caught 77 passes for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns through 12 games. He also has thrown for two touchdowns.
The Giants (4-8) are sitting at the bottom of the NFC East, a division where the Redskins (6-6) have lost three straight games as they struggle without injured starting quarterback Alex Smith, with back-up Colt McCoy also out.
