Whatever is going on here, this can’t just be about a bruise
Per Dan Duggan of The Athletic, coach Pat Shurmur said “He’s just getting it checked out. It doesn’t mean anything.”
Beckham apparently sustained the quad injury when he was leg-whipped on the final play against the Philadelphia Eagles more than two weeks ago. He played the following week against the Chicago Bears, but showed up on the injury report late last week and was held out of Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
Beckham practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, participating only in individual drills.
The injury has been referred to as a bruise. At this point, though, you begin to wonder if it isn’t something more severe than that. And if perhaps the reports that wide receiver Cody Latimer could be activated from IR next week might be protection for the Beckham situation.
