New York Teams

Since fantasy owners seem concerned and have asked, no, I'm not adjusting the top-5 ranking overall or by position for Giants WR Odell Beckham because his sprained ankle could cost him a week or two of the regular season. Beckham has never produced much in past Septembers anyway. Still has had dominant seasons. Elite fantasy option.

For the second straight day, Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty received the majority of the Jets' QB reps, ahead of Josh McCown. The breakdown: Hackenberg 19, Petty 15 and McCown nine. They did a two-minute drill walk through at the end, and McCown took those reps. This is a strange competition.

Notable No. 2 at practice: Brett Jones snuck in a few first-team snaps at right guard. Interesting. John Jerry remained the primary starting RG.

Ben McAdoo didn't have much to add on Odell Beckham Jr. He has an ankle injury and is day to day.

Notable at practice: WR Roger Lewis had a huge day with the first-team offense. He caught at least a handful of passes, including several deep downfield.

WRs Odell Beckham (ankle) and Brandon Marshall (shoulder) were among those that didn't practice. Beckham wasn't even outside.

The back left line of warmups is usually occupied by Brandon Marshall and Odell Beckham. Today by Bundy (86) and Germany (2). Marshall on sideline. Don't see OBJ.

The Jets begin team drills and QB Josh McCown is with the starters, not running gassers on his own.

Stats & Info

Will OBJ be sidelined by injury?

Odell Beckham Jr. sprained his ankle in Monday's preseason game against the Browns, and a source told ESPN it's "not out of the question he could miss a week or two of the regular season.” Beckham has played 43 of a possible 48 games in his career, missing four of the five because of injury.

The Jets have released WR Marquess Wilson, their most accomplished receiver (based on career yardage). Wilson had missed camp time with a hip injury and was down on the depth chart. They signed rookie TE Brandon Barnes (Alabama State).

Giants waive WR Darius Powe and Andrew Turzilli and OL Michael Bowie and Corin Brooks. GM Jerry Reese says in statement team will let process play out and determine whether there is another opportunity for Bowie, who was charged with domestic abuse. The Giants signed WR Marquis Bundy and C.J. Germany and OL Richard Levy and Matt Rotherman.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek was at a gym in Manhattan this week to watch a pickup game featuring Carmelo Anthony and other NBA players, per league sources. It's unclear if Hornacek was there to watch/support Anthony or to watch other players in the game but his presence is worth noting given the current situation between the Knicks and Anthony. The club would like to trade Anthony and Anthony would like to be moved but NYK hasn't found a suitable deal yet. Anthony has been working out with trainer Chris Brickley at the Lifetime Fitness gym in Manhattan this summer and playing pickup with several NBA players, including LeBron James and Kevin Durant, at the gym.

Without including Kristaps Porzingis, the Knicks would have been hard pressed (to say the least) to come up with a package like Boston's for Kyrie‬ Irving. Irving had been telling friends that he was open to playing in New York.

Jets RB Matt Forte, who returned after missing three weeks of practice with a pulled hamstring, explains the importance of getting preseason action. He hopes to play Saturday and says there's "no doubt" he will be ready for Week 1. His son, Matt, has a reporter's tape recorder as he listens to dad.

Two weeks after ripping former Jets teammate Brandon Marshall, Sheldon Richardson was a man of few words today when asked about facing Marshall on Saturday in the annual Jets-Giants game. No doubt, he was instructed to avoid commenting on Marshall, who has a shoulder injury.
