Sunday October 5th, 2014

New York Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will make his debut Sunday against the Falcons, reports ESPN's Sal Paolantonio. Beckham was seen warming up prior to kickoff.

Beckham has missed the entire season up until this point due to a hamstring injury. Last week, Beckham said his hamstring is "as close as it's going to get" to being 100 percent and that it would likely be a problem all season. Giants' coach Tom Coughlin added that the team was trying to be "patient" when it comes to playing the rookie receiver.

BELLER: Who to sit, who to start for Week 5

The Giants selected Beckham with the 12th pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. In his final season at LSU, Beckham caught 57 passes for 1,117 yards and eight touchdowns.

The Giants are 2-2 heading into Sunday's game against Atlanta.
