NYG's horrible season gets worse.
New York Giants' star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. suffered a broken ankle in yesterday's 27-22 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, according to ESPN. According to reports, Beckham will get a second opinion before deciding on surgery to repair the ankle, which is the same one that he injured during the preseason.
Odell was carted off the field with four minutes remaining in the game after he went up for a catch and fell awkwardly to the ground. The 24-year old Pro Bowl receiver was in obvious pain as Chargers players immediately called for medical attention as soon as he went down.
Adam Schefter reports that Beckham is expected to miss the remainder of the season although the team will still seek a second opinion before making a decision.

Odell wasn't the only Giants wide receiver injured in yesterday's loss, which dropped the team to 0-5 on the season. Brandon Marshall was also carted off the field with an ankle injury in the second quarter, not long after Sterling Shephard limped off the with an ankle injury as well. Neither player returned in the second half.
Additionally, Dwayne Harris, who also serves as the Giants' Kick/Punt returner left on a cart early in the third quarter with a fractured foot and is expected to miss the remainder of the season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
New York will travel to Denver in Week 6 for a Sunday night matchup against the Broncos.
