While the Giants are holding out hope for Beckham, there is serious doubt about whether he will play, sources told Schefter. Meetings are planned for Sunday to better assess Beckham's status.
Beckham injured his left ankle Aug. 21 in a preseason game against the Cleveland Browns and has not practiced since. He did some work on the side with a trainer Wednesday and Thursday but was seen doing only straight-line running.
He was officially listed as did not practice for the team's practices on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Giants coach Ben McAdoo emphatically stated earlier this week that Beckham will play against the Cowboys only if he is cleared by the medical staff. The decision will not be left up to the player or the coach.
