Odell Beckham Jr. gave Giants fans a scare on Sunday when he left New York’s win over the Cleveland Browns with a thumb injury. Despite initially being listed as questionable to return, Beckham made his way back into the game on the following possession. He finished with six catches for 96 yards and 2 TDs.
When asked about the injury on Wednesday, Beckham told reporters that he fully expects to play this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. In fact, the Giants wide receiver apparently believes that the injury will make him even better.
“I think in a sense it doesn’t really hurt me because now I have to focus more on catching the ball,” Beckham said. “I have to really lock in the focus of where you’re placing your hands. I’ve kind of noticed it actually almost make me be able to catch better, minus the pain of what it is. It allows me to lock into another focus.”
What do you think about his logic here?
