Another day, another piece of news on Odell Beckham Jr. that a lot of people in New York and New Jersey won’t like. Following his visits with the Giants, Cowboys and Bills, people across the country are waiting to see OBJ in action. The hope was that he’d be back on the gridiron to close out the regular season with his team of choice and make primetime plays once again.

If you ask Micah Parsons, though, that won’t be happening. According to insider Todd Archer, Beckham told the Cowboys star pass-rusher that he won’t be ready for game action for more than a month. If that’s the case, the Beckham wouldn’t be able to suit up until the postseason. For the Giants, this sure is rough.

WR Odell Beckham Jr. may not be ready to play until the postseason

If this news on Beckham from Parsons is true, then the NY Giants surely wouldn’t be in any kind of rush to get a deal done with him. The Giants don’t need a wideout who will help them next season – they need someone who can help them get the job done now.

The NY wide receivers room has been destroyed with injuries. Kadarius Toney was traded before the deadline, as his nagging hamstring issue was not only a problem for Brian Daboll, but it’s now giving Chiefs head coach Andy Reid plenty of headaches as well. Sterling Shepard suffering his season-ending injury broke countless hearts out there. Kenny Golladay – we don’t even know where to start.

With Beckham taking his visit to East Rutherford last week, people were hoping he’d not only sign with the Giants, but also be able to be a pass-catching option for Daniel Jones as soon as possible. If Beckham can’t suit up until the playoffs, then this could be back-breaking for the Giants, who may not even move on to the postseason.

This team is 1-3-1 in their last five games and they’ve got a date with the Eagles in Week 14. All in all, we’re feeling less and less optimistic about seeing Beckham on the field at Metlife Stadium this campaign.
