Beck­ham still iffy for Giants

Boston Herald - - SUNDAY MMA NOTEBOOK -

The ques­tion of the day at Giants prac­tice yes­ter­day re­mained: Will Odell Beck­ham Jr. play to­mor­row night against the Lions?

The three-time Pro Bowl wide re­ceiver is hob­bled by a high an­kle sprain suf­fered in the sec­ond pre­sea­son game against the Browns. He missed last NFL

Sun­day’s 19-3 loss to the Cowboys and was ques­tion­able on the team’s in­jury re­port yes­ter­day. His par­tic­i­pa­tion in the light prac­tice ses­sion was once again lim­ited, like it was all week.

Coach Ben McA­doo ad­dressed the sit­u­a­tion be­fore the Giants’ work­out, but did not shed any light whether the star pass catcher would be able to play.

“We’ll see how it goes.” McA­doo said. “We’ll get in there and do a lit­tle bit of work (yes­ter­day). Then (to­day), we’ll go in and have our launch day. We’ll take a look at him (to­day) and see how it goes.

“It’s a med­i­cal de­ci­sion. We’re just see­ing his level of con­fi­dence and where he is stick­ing his foot in the ground. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion is a two-way street. It’s vis­ual and ver­bal.”

Ear­lier in the week, Beck­ham called his in­jury a “6-8 week thing.” The in­jury took place four weeks ago.

Chiefs Hunt down an­other RB

The Chiefs have again re­leased vet­eran C.J. Spiller, clear­ing room on the ros­ter to pro­mote fel­low running back Akeem Hunt be­fore to­day’s home opener against Philadel­phia.

Spiller signed with the Chiefs in the off­sea­son in an at­tempt to res­ur­rect his ca­reer, which had been de­railed by in­juries. He looked good in train­ing camp and the pre­sea­son but was re­leased as part of fi­nal ros­ter cut­downs on Sept. 2.

That move was a book­keep­ing ma­neu­ver and Spiller was signed the next day. But he was re­leased again on Sept. 7, signed once more and re­leased a third time yes­ter­day.

Hunt, who is not re­lated to start­ing running back Ka­reem Hunt, spent the past two sea­sons with the Tex­ans.

Rams ac­ti­vate Don­ald

Aaron Don­ald is set to play his first game since end­ing his hold­out from the Rams.

The Rams moved Don­ald from the ex­empt list to the ac­tive ros­ter, clear­ing the way for the All-Pro de­fen­sive line­man to start to­day against Wash­ing­ton . . . .

With start­ing quar­ter­back Sam Brad­ford listed as ques­tion­able for to­day’s game with a knee in­jury, the Vikings signed quar­ter­back Kyle Sloter from their prac­tice squad . . . .

The Jets pro­moted de­fen­sive line­man Lawrence Thomas and out­side line­backer Fred­die Bishop from the prac­tice squad.
