Giants’ Schwartz Placed On Short Term IR, Beckham Out Against Lions

The New York Giants dealt with a brittle offensive line in 2013, and the team appears to have the same problem occurring this season, even before a single regular season game is played. In addition, first round draft pick Odell Beckham, Jr. has not seen the field in a meaningful way, so an expected big part of their offense will be unavailable as they face the Detroit Lions on Monday night.
