New York Giants receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall are both ailing, but beyond that, head coach Ben McAdoo didn’t shed much light as to the exact nature of the two players’ injuries nor how long each might be out of action.
“Odell has an ankle, and we’ll see how he responds to treatment,” McAdoo said on a conference call with the Giants beat writers.
“Brandon has a shoulder, and again, we just have to see how these two guys respond to treatment. We had them in here for a treatment session, and we’ll take it day-by-day.”
An NFL Network report indicated that Marshall’s injury isn’t considered serious and that he’ll be fine in a day or so.
On #Giants WR Brandon Marshall, who hurt his shoulder last night, I’m told “he’ll be fine.” No worries there

In other injury news, cornerback Michael Hunter is in concussion protocol after suffering a second-half concussion in the game. Receiver Tavarres King re-aggravated the same ankle that kept him out of practice for several days two weeks ago. McAdoo said King as sore.
As for the rest of the Giants injured such as linebackers Mark Herzlich (stinger) and Keenan Robinson (concussion), and cornerback Eli Apple (ankle), McAdoo said he hopes to get some of those guys back, even if limited, tomorrow when the team returns to practice.
“We’re taking a look at that right now,” McAdoo said. “Nothing is set in stone at this point.”
The coach also said that the team is still gathering information about the circumstances surrounding offensive lineman Michael Bowie, who was allegedly charged with domestic assault and battery against his girlfriend in his home state of Oklahoma.
As such, no decision has been made yet about Bowie’s immediate future with the team.
“We’ll see what the information that we gather (is),” McAdoo said. “I need more information from the other side of the building. They’re working hard right now on trying to get information, trying to get all the details so we have all the information before any decisions are made.”
