The New York Giants will return from their brief holiday break on Wednesday, but when they do, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (quad) and linebacker Alec Ogletree (concussion) will remain sidelined.

Giants head coach Pat Shurmur informed reporters that both Beckham and Ogletree were feeling better and that each has a chance to play against the Dallas Cowboys come Sunday, but would not likely participate at practice on Wednesday.

Beckham has missed three consecutive games after suffering a quad injury on the final play against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12. That injury was aggravated later on and he was subsequently shut down.

Meanwhile, Ogletree sat out last week after reporting to the team with concussion-like symptoms following a Week 15 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Similarly, tight end Rhett Ellison remains in concussion protocol after leaving a Week 16 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He, too, will not practice on Wednesday.

On the positive side, wide receiver Russell Shepard (ankle) was walking around the locker-room sans boot for the first time since suffering his injury.

The Giants will not officially practice until later this afternoon, at which time we’ll update the injury report with official designations and participation levels.
