Giants confirm Odell's season is over.
The New York Giants have just confirmed what everyone had been expecting - Odell Beckham Jr.'s season is over. Beckham suffered a fractured ankle with four minutes remaining in yesterday's 27-22 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, and will undergo season-ending surgery later this week.
The 24-year old Pro Bowl receiver fractured his left ankle, which is the same one that he had injured during the preseason.
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.
