The New York Giants (5-9) are officially eliminated from the postseason, but the team hasn't completely stuck a fork in the 2018 campaign.
While it would make sense to shut down Beckham and allow extra time to heal before the offseason, Shurmur apparently isn't approaching the final two games as an evaluation process for other receivers on the roster to take on more responsibilities. Shurmur said he considers Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts as "important" and there is value in the Giants "learning how to win," according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY .
Despite missing the past two games, Beckham has been a bright spot for an otherwise dismal Giants' season. Fresh off signing a lucrative contract extension during the offseason, Beckham has 77 catches for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games. The 1,000-yard receiving campaign marks his fourth such effort in five seasons, and he has also thrown two touchdown passes in 2018.
