New York Giants' Beckham faces National Football League season-ending ankle op

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. suffered a fractured left ankle during Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, according to the team.

We can assume Beckham is done for the year, and Harris' fractured foot will take at least two months to heal, which means his season is pretty much over as well.

Beckham was having a decent afternoon, stats-wise, with 97 yards receiving and one touchdown before the injury.

The Giants tried going back to basics during practice last week, simplifying the calls, homing in on the fundamentals, even turning off the music that typically blares at points so that the players could better focus. Thin at receiver with the myriad of injuries the G-Men already have two volunteers who are offering their services. The New York Pass Defense would be a even more lethal threat up front and get after anyone that was in their way. NY missed the 2-point conversion attempt after being hit with a delay of game penalty.

Reviewing film from previous games, the defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo let his players run the session, critiquing their own performances as they saw them on screen. Now they are one of the three still without a win. The Giants were up 22-17 at the time, and if the two-point conversion was successful, they would be up by a touchdown.

When you look around the league at what other teams have to work with a quarterback, it's a joke that Manning isn't getting credit for what he's done this season. Rivers (21 of 44 for 258 yards) and Manning (21 for 36 for 183) each missed open receivers deep. While he did have one ugly interception, Rivers did what was necessary to get his team over the line.

Who's not: Take your pick. Now Manning faces the prospect of playing the Broncos, who have a top-tier defense, without any of his best weapons. However, like many of his teammates, he is out with injury.

Los Angeles announced the move on Saturday. He said there are no plans at this point to re-sign fan favorite Victor Cruz, who was released after last season. It's also beneficial that he's been with the team going back to offseason workouts, so he has familiarity with the system.

The ceremony came a day after he was honored with a life-sized statue outside Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Chargers can now start to focus on putting a winning streak together as they approach Week 6 in which they will head to Oakland to battle the Raiders for the first time this season. Lynn's play-calling on Sunday seemed good for the most part.

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.
