The Giants, too, found themselves on the wrong end of a fourth quarter loss. That said, I believe he has a little more room for error than McAdoo.
I'll spare you the "I'm not a doctor" spiel, but it doesn't look like Beckham can expect a quick recovery. "So you've got to work for yourself, work for your teammates". "We've got to have that extra energy". Both teams were expected to be much, much better than they are to this point in the season so we can expect to see a desperate battle between two squads looking to do anything to salvage something out of the season. "We're just trying to win a game right now and then hopefully we can get on a roll".
But the Giants haven't proven they can do that yet. So when the offense ran onto the field after Gordon's touchdown, Pugh looked up and saw tight ends Jerell Adams, Rhett Ellison and Evan Engram, the latter two lining up as wide receivers. In addition to Beckham and Harris, Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard both suffered ankle injuries that resulted in having to leave the game as well. DeVante Parker left the Dolphins eventual win over the Titans with an ankle injury in the third quarter, and did not return. The injury has caused him to miss training camp and each of San Diego's four games this season. He could need surgery.
NY ranks second to last in rushing yards per game, only averaged 59.2 per contest.
Rivers has been an invaluable player to the entire Chargers franchise. The safety put the Giants up 2-0. He did catch all the balls within his reach Sunday, however, including two 15-yard throws that set up Manning's 29-yard touchdown toss to Roger Lewis, Jr.in the third quarter. For some reason they had Manning throwing the ball. On a first-and-10 from his own 23, Rivers had hit Ty Williams over the middle for a 22-yard gain.
Beckham had 25 catches for 302 yards and three touchdowns this season. At this point in his National Football League career, the 36-year-old will never cease to be the erratic passer who can go from looking like an All-Pro one week to completely pedestrian the next.
The nature of the current injury is unknown at this time, but recall Beckham suffered a left high-ankle sprain in the preseason and has played through the concern in four consecutive contests, despite suffering a few setbacks along the way.
