EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The biggest news out of the Quest Diagnostics Training Center on Thursday was that New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.. returned to practice. Lost in the shuffle was that starting right tackle Bobby Hart did not practice.

Hart rolled his right ankle in Sunday's 19-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He rode the stationary bike while his teammates practiced on Thursday.

Linebacker Keenan Robinson (concussion) also missed practice as the Giants began preparations for their Monday night matchup at MetLife Stadium with the Detroit Lions.

Hart's absence could force the Giants to make changes to their offensive line. Guard Justin Pugh and undrafted rookie Chad Wheeler are the top choices to start in Hart's place. Brett Jones is next in line at guard if Pugh slides outside to tackle.

“We'll roll a couple different guys in there [at right tackle],” coach Ben McAdoo said. “We'll take a look at it and we'll see how the week goes.”

Robinson has now been sidelined for more than a month. He returned for a few days, but went back to the concussion protocol in mid-August. He hasn't practiced since.

Robinson missed the Giants' opener in Dallas.

Thursday was the Giants' first practice of the week. Defensive tackle Jay Bromley (knee), cornerback Janoris Jenkins (ankle/hand) and wide receiver Tavarres King (ankle) were on this week's injury report but listed as full participants in practice.

Jenkins was injured in Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys. He left the locker room with his hand wrapped but was on the field when the Giants returned to work on Thursday.
