New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. told NFL Media's Kim Jones that he is feeling better about the right hamstring injury he sustained that kept him from participating in organized team activities earlier this summer.
“It feels a lot better actually," Beckham Jr. said. “I would rather be healthy than anything else. I just don't want to go through that, what I had to go through last year, and not just for myself, for this team.”
In his 2014 rookie season, Beckham Jr. missed training camp and the season’s first four games with a hamstring issue, but still managed to win the offensive rookie of the year award, with 1,305 receiving yards and 91 catches, including 12 touchdowns.
Beckham said Tuesday that last year changed his life “so fast,” because not only did he have to deal with the injury and being out for a significant time, but also he had to adjust to having a new team and new teammates as well.
