New York Giants superstar Odell Beckham Jr. was unable to practice again on Wednesday and the rest of his season seems to be in jeopardy.
EAST RUTHERFORD, NEW JERSEY—The New York Giants returned to the practice field on Wednesday as they prepare to take on the Indianapolis Colts (8-6) on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Five players were unable to practice on Wednesday. One of them was Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham has missed the last two games due to a quad injury and he’s been unable to participate in practice fully for the last two weeks. He’s officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game, but with the Giants eliminated from playoff contention, it’s unclear if they’ll risk suiting up Beckham for fear that he could re-aggravate his injury.

Prior to the start of the regular season, the Giants gave Beckham a five-year, $95 million ($65 million guaranteed) contract extension. With that kind of investment, it wouldn’t make sense to risk further injury that could linger in the offseason.
It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Giants put their star receiver on injured reserve in the next few days.
While OBJ might be on his way to IR, the Giants activated Cody Latimer off of injured reserve. Latimer joined the Giants as a free agent on March 19, after four seasons with the Denver Broncos.
The 26-year-old Latimer played in four games this season before going on IR on Oct. 16 with a hamstring injury. He caught six passes for 108 yards, the longest a 39-yarder in his final game in the Giants 34-13 loss to the Eagles in Week 6 at MetLife Stadium.
While the Giants took Latimer off IR, they placed defensive back Antonio Hamilton on IR after he suffered a quad injury Sunday in the Giants 17-0 loss to the Titans.
