OBJ and Brandon Marshall injuries, offensive struggles leave cause for concern

12:01 AM ET An injury to wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was about the worst thing the New York Giants could have imagined Monday night in their 10-6 preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns. It happened. Fortunately, X-rays on Beckham’s ankle were negative and the Giants calling it a sprain. Beckham will have further tests when the team returns home.

It’s Dec. 31 in Charlotte, with the Cavs up 114-104, and James is walking toward the charity stripe to shoot the technical. Based on pure math, this is a bad call.
