Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to return to practice

Monday August 11th, 2014

New York Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will return to practice on Monday, according to the New York Daily News.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Beckham will be limited to individual work initially but could do more if his injured hamstring responds well. According to the report, Beckham is still unlikely to play in the Giants' preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday.

Beckham originally hurt his hamstring during OTAs earlier this summer, and the injury lingered to the start of training camp, with Coughlin expressing disappointment at Beckham's condition. Last week, Coughlin said Beckham was "getting close" to returning.

The No. 12 pick in the 2014 NFL draft, Beckham caught 57 passes for 1,117 yards and eight touchdowns last season for LSU.
