Beckham Jr. breaks fibula

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has suffered a broken fibula. The Giants are now 0-5 after Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers at the StubHub Center, but the team is more concerned with their star.

Beckham Jr. is likely done for the season, as he had to have emergency surgery in Los Angeles. The early diagnosis is that it is a broken fibula, according to NFL Network’s Kimberly Jones.

He was injured in the closing minutes of the game. Beckham Jr. only played in a few games this season after dealing with a preseason ankle injury that caused him to miss the first two games of the season.

He was carted off the field and it did not look good. He was reportedly crying, as he went off the field.

Beckham Jr. had five receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game. His injury happened with approx. three minutes left in the game.

He was one of four wide receivers, who left the game with injuries. The Giants also most Sterling Shepard, Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris to injuries, yet Beckham Jr.’s was the most severe.

Shepard and Marshall both suffered ankle injuries, while it’s also being reported that Marshall may have also suffered an Achilles injury. Harris suffered a foot injury.
