The New York Giants were snake bitten on Sunday. There’s really no other way to put it. And with only 4:00 remaining in the fourth quarter, their bad dream became a straight-up nightmare.
Having already lost wide receivers Sterling Shepard, Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris to injuries – the first two with ankle injuries and the latter with a broken foot – the team then lost superstar Odell Beckham Jr.
After going up high for an Eli Manning pass, Beckham came down awkwardly and had a defender roll up his already injured ankle.
Beckham laid on the ground in obvious pain as Chargers players immediately called for trainers. And it took only minutes before the cart came out to get him.
As Beckham was carted off, he couldn’t hold in the emotion and was clearly seen sobbing. The injury appeared severe and potentially season-ending.
Rather than going to the locker-room, Beckham was immediately taken for x-rays.
With Beckham, Marshall, Harris and Shepard all out of the game, Roger Lewis Jr. is the team’s sole remaining wide receiver.
