New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. most likely will not play Thursday night against the Washington Redskins, according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. Giants head coach Tom Coughlin was asked about the status of his team's first-round selection and said "I don't believe he's there," meaning that he's not ready to play.

Coughlin on Beckham: "We're trying to be as patient as we can, the idea is when we get him back we're gonna have him.'' #nyg— Paul Schwartz (@NYPost_Schwartz) September 22, 2014
Beckham was picked 12th overall by the Giants in this year's draft. The rookie out of LSU has yet to suit up this year due to a lingering hamstring injury.
The Giants, currently 1-2 after a 30-17 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday, will face division rival Washington this Thursday on the road.
