Odell Beckham Jr. left the practice field early Sunday after suffering "a cut or two" to his leg in a collision with teammate Janoris Jenkins, Giants coach Ben McAdoo said.

"He's probably going to be sore for a couple days," McAdoo told reporters after practice.

The star receiver landed awkwardly after going up for a deep ball against cornerback Janoris Jenkins. Beckham required attention from trainers for a few minutes after the play. He stayed on the field for a while, walking gingerly on his left leg, and he was spotted on the sideline grabbing his ankle area. Despite trying to jog it off, the Giants star eventually rode a cart back into the team's training facility before the conclusion of practice.

McAdoo, though, said the injury doesn't look to be serious: "He got cleated."

Added Beckham, who said there was "a little bloodshed" on his left ankle: "I got stepped on. It's nothing too bad. It's football, it happens."

Beckham was fifth in the league with 1,450 receiving yards last season and tied for fourth with 13 receiving touchdowns. Prior to the scary collision, it looked like the offseason didn't slow his connection down with Eli Manning one bit:

Luckily for the Giants, it doesn't appear Beckham's injury will keep him away from Manning for long.
