The injury likely will land Beckham on injured reserve for at least eight weeks, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. However, considering the nature of the injury and New York's place in the standings, it is highly unlikely the wideout sees the field again this season.
With four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter against the Chargers, Beckham landed awkwardly after attempting to catch a high slant pass and left the field in a trainer's cart. Wincing in pain, Beckham covered his face as the cart left the field.
Beckham was ruled out for the remainder of the game and was seen on crutches heading to Giants' locker room.
This is a dreadful reality for a team that was already struggling. Beckham is the Giants' offense. He is the only player fast enough to negate the constant duress Manning has faced. He is the only receiver on the roster capable of twirling out of double and triple teams. Beckham's 48-yard touchdown catch Sunday, the product of a beautiful out-and-up double move, was one of two memorable offensive plays run by the Giants through the first three-and-a-half quarters.
With Beckham goes New York's season. The winless Giants will be rudderless without their only consistent weapon, and their schedule doesn't ease up on them. Considered a distraction during New York's tumultuous start, Beckham, and his antics, will be sorely missed on the sideline this season as the Giants attempt to navigate a lost campaign without their top talent.
