Odell Beckham Jr. to Undergo Season-Ending Surgery on Ankle Injury

Odell Beckham seen here in action in the first half is latest wide receiver to leave with ankle injury

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.suffered a fractured ankle during Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, according to the team. "I just told him I will be thinking about him and, obviously, we don't know the severity of it, but hopefully he will be OK".

A source told ESPN that Beckham will undergo surgery to fix the injury. He landed awkwardly and fractured his left ankle.

Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports that Beckham will require surgery.

The Chargers players immediately called for medical assistance from the Giants' sideline. He was carted off the field in visible anguish. Those are never good signs.

Following the game, the Giants weren't ready to announce whether Beckham would have season-ending surgery. It goes without saying that this season is not going well for that team. They're now looking at a lost season - potentially without their top playmaker.

Beckham wasn't the only Giants receiver to receive bad news on Sunday.

If Brian Hoyer is going to keep throwing the ball almost 39 times per game, or 47.5 times per game as he has the last two games, there's room for someone besides Pierre Garcon to be fantasy relevant among 49ers wide receivers. Sterling Shepard is considered day-to-day with his sprained ankle, and Brandon Marshall will have more tests Monday on his sprained ankle. That was Roger Lewis. Beckham has 25 receptions for 302 yards and three touchdowns on the season. Beckham dropped to his knees in celebration after the score and performed CPR (without the mouth-to-mouth) on the football.

He was one of four receivers to go down Sunday as what has become a disastrous season went off the rails.

The Giants have also ruled LB Jonathan Casillas (burner) and S Landon Collins (ankle) as day-to-day.
