NFL Debut: Odell, Welcome to the Show


A New York Star is Born.

The New York Giants are cautiously optimistic their first-round draft pick, WR Odell Beckham Jr. will play on Sunday. His status should be confirmed on Friday afternoon barring any setbacks after the team’s final practice. The former LSU Tiger has been battling a hamstring injury suffered during the pre-season. Fantasy football owners take note. Beckham’s start could impact the touches of Giants’ TE Larry Donnell and wide receivers Victor Cruz and Reuben Randle.


Saturday Injury Report

Richie “Dick” Burns and Mike Hunt, FTS’ correspondents, filed a late injury report on Saturday night. WR Eric Decker of the New York Jets is a game-time decision with a sore hamstring. WR Brandon Marshall of the Chicago Bears is questionable with a sore ankle. Arian Foster could miss Sunday’s game due to his injured hamstring. TE Vernon Davis (San Francisco 49ers) is questionable with a sore back, while Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is inactive and will not play on Sunday.
