No one-handed snags to see tonight? The New York Giants officially ruled out Odell Beckham Jr. for tonight’s matchup against Dallas.

The news is not overly shocking, as the reports from early in the day from various sources stated that Beckham was not expected to play in the division matchup.
Plan for Odell Beckham is to go through pregame workout, much like last year in London. Multiple sources think it's unlikely he'll play.

Asked chances of OBJ playing tonight vs. Cowboys, one source texted, "What are the chances of you going to Cuba next month for vacation?"

Beckham is obviously a huge part of the Giants offense, and losing him will hurt the team’s chances against the Dallas Cowboys. He’s a top receiver in the league and him sitting makes Dallas’ job on defense that much easier.
The defense will need to generate turnovers tonight in order to get the Giants into better field position. Losing Beckham’s ability to avoid tackles after the catch will make it much harder to drive down the field.
The Giants’ job tonight just got a lot harder. The team will need to step up.
