Odell Beckham is going to give it a go in London. The Giants wide receiver has been hampered by a hip pointer throughout this week after briefly leaving the team's Week 6 game against the Ravens due to the ailment, but he tested things out during pregame and is going to be active for the Giants' showdown with the Rams at Twickenham Stadium.
Beckham was spotted on the field working with trainers while the rest of the Giants wideouts were warming up with Eli Manning, per reporters on scene, but by the time the inactives list came out, Beckham was not on it.
Odell Beckham Jr. (hip/ab) just spent a lot of time with trainers. Didn't warm up with the WRs and had long conversation with Ben McAdoo.— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) October 23, 2016

Giants say Odell Beckham, Jr. Is officially active. Now let's see whether injury affects him. Was not a normal pregame for him.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 23, 2016
Beckham returned after the injury in Week 6 to torch the Ravens for two long touchdowns (including the game-winner on fourth-and-1), so it's not as though he couldn't still make plays. It's possible the injury has more of an effect on him this week, though, given the overseas travel and the clear pain and discomfort he was apparently experiencing during warmups.
