Beckham may or may not face Lions Monday night

EAST RUTHERFORD NJ- AUGUST 11 New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall on the sideline during the Preseason National Football League game betw

Beckham had previously warmed up with his teammates before practices, but then would work with trainers on the side. Something has to give this week as both the Lions and the Giants are 0-5 ATS in their last five games played in Week 2. Both teams figure to be in the hunt for these spots again this year, and this early-season meeting could play a role in how things shake out down the stretch.

Friday's practice, the longest of the week, was especially grueling.

Right tackle Bobby Hart was limited at practice Friday with a sprained right ankle. This week he's been on the field, participating in drills and running routes against air.

It's progress after Beckham did not practice and worked on the side with trainers most of last week.

"As soon as he's cleared we'll welcome him back", McAdoo said. "Got a little bit more [Friday], but he's still limited".

"He looked good. Looked like he's improving", wide receiver Roger Lewis said.

Beckham said he has been receiving round-the-clock treatment.

The New York Giants offense was just awful in their 19-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.

"He's been great, his attitude is tremendous, he's working hard and works at it", Sullivan said of Marshall, who had just one catch on four targets in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Beckham has been the Giants' leading receiver each of his first three professional seasons.
