OBJ on playing Week 1: 'I wouldn't count it out yet'

Odell Beckham's journey back to the field has taken another step forward.

The New York Giants star receiver officially did not take part in Wednesday's practice, but NFL Network's Judy Battista reported that Beckham "moved well in stretching," noting that the pass-catcher was able to "backpedal [and] jog," while "bouncing on [his] feet."

That alone marks progress for Beckham, who spent Monday's session off to the side with trainers on an exercise bike.

The hope for Giants fans is that Beckham will be spry enough to suit up for Sunday night's season-opening showdown with the Dallas Cowboysafter injuring his ankle during New York's preseason tilt with the Browns on Aug. 21.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo told reporters if Beckham is cleared by the team's medical staff, he'll play.

"I wouldn't count it out yet," Beckham said regarding playing Sunday, per Battista.
