"He missed part of spring ball with a hamstring and he tweaked it yesterday. Obviously there is a concern," general manager Jerry Reese told The Star-Ledger. "But you see that in some young players sometimes. They're a little bit nervous, a little bit anxious and that happens to them."
Coach Tom Couglin said he had no idea when Beckham would be back at full strength. "Those hamstrings, don't ask me. I have no idea," Coughlin said. "He missed today. He said it's sore. That is about all you can ask."
It's unclear when he'll return to practice.
But according to the New York Post, it's risky to put a prized first-round pick "in the line of fire in the return game." Given there's a good chance Beckham is heavily involved in the offense as a receiver, the team might opt against giving him "a steady diet" as a returner, the paper said.
The report said if Beckham could deliver 50-something catches for 800-plus yards and four or five touchdowns then "the Giants would likely sign for that right now." Beckham is competing for a starting job opposite Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle.
