Odell Beckham headed for surgery

Beckham Jr. clearly had tears in his eyes while being taken off the field, signaling the possible severity of this injury. Injuries rampant, receiving corps depleted.

OBJ suffered an injury to the same ankle during the preseason, and missed the first game of the season because of it.

Marshall had two catches for 15 yards before leaving the action, while Shepard contributed a nine-yard catch. The 0-5 Giants could be in a position to target Eli Manning's successor in the 2018 draft if they continue on this bad trend.

It's been a disappointing start to the season for Marshall, who signed a two-year deal with NY in March. What would have generally have been a fairly inconsequential play became, unfortunately, a critical moment for the Giants as their star receiver remained on the ground in considerable pain.

Shepard, on the other hand, has been Eli Manning's most reliable target so far this season.

He tweeted: "Odell Beckham is headed for surgery, per source".

At 0-4, losing Beckham would all but ensure the Giants' playoff hopes are over. Of course, a loss to the hapless Chargers would do that, too.
