Odell Beckham Jr.is in danger of missing the September 10 game against the Cowboys after suffering a sprained ankle in Monday's preseason game against the Browns.

The Giants play the Dallas Cowboys in the season opener on Sunday night.

Citing a source, the network reported that New York's superstar wide receiver potentially could miss up to two weeks of the regular season.

Beckham's injury occurred as Boddy-Calhoun went low on a high throw, taking the receiver's legs out from under him.

Despite jogging into the locker room and expressing optimism after the game, Beckham felt "very sore" on Tuesday, according to another source.

While short on specifics, Ben McAdoo's message today was that neither Odell Beckham, Jr. nor Brandon Marshall were seriously hurt last night in the Giants' preseason loss in Cleveland.

The Giants head coach would not give a clear answer on if the injuries to Beckham and Marshall change his approach for Saturday against the Jets.

"It is just football, I guess", Beckham said.

The Giants told reporters on Monday that he'll be "alright".

Giants safety Landon Collins was critical of Boddy-Calhoun's hit, saying, "I can not have a teammate next to me playing that way".

Asked if he had long-term concerns about either player, McAdoo said, "Again, we'll take it day by day and see how they respond to treatment".

"I said he was wrong for what he did, " Collins said after the game.

Mainly - doesn't Beckham have two ankles??

Beckham left the game early in the second quarter. "You have to play the game to get better at the game, and on offense we definitely need the work".

The Giants said X-rays on Beckham's ankle were negative and that he has a sprain. "Coach and the training staff and just see what we do. I thought Briean was just trying to tackle a player and got him on the ground".
