Odell Beckham Jr. decided to stare right into Monday's solar eclipse

The Giants' big-name, big-play wide receivers are both considered day to day, which is fine because they have 18 of those days until they face the Cowboys in the regular-season opener.

The hit drew the attention of many on Twitter, including one ESPN writer calling for a regular season suspension.

Beckham Jr. suffered an ankle sprain in a preseason game on Monday against the Cleveland Browns when he caught a pass and defensive back Briean Boddy-Calhoun went low to bring Beckham Jr.to the ground. As for Marshall, McAdoo revealed that X-rays were negative on the veteran receiver's shoulder, per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.

Beckham has reached the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons in the NFL, establishing himself as one of the league's most risky receivers.

According to the report, a one-year insurance policy worth $100 million would cost Beckham roughly $600,000. McAdoo added that the team will wait to see how Beckham, 24, responds to treatment.

"I don't know, it's just football I guess, preseason", he said, shaking his head, according to the Associated Press. After traveling to Dallas for a Sunday Night Football assignment, the Giants host the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football.

According to the report, Trump has been "irritated" with Bannon following a series of Breitbart reports targeting McMaster. McMaster refused to single out Bannon - or even mention him by name - in an appearance Sunday on NBC's " Meet the Press ".

The hit, while legal, drew scrutiny from Beckham's teammates as well as offensive players from around the league. In two games, they have 138 rushing yards in 43 attempts, a 3.2-yard average.

After last night's injury scare, you have to think Beckham is heavily leaning toward purchasing the insurance.

"I thought he had a fairly good showing", McAdoo said.

Asked if Beckham had a high ankle sprain or a low ankle sprain, McAdoo again made a decision to play it coy. Their strength is their two starting wide receivers, Odell Beckham, Jr. and Brandon Marshall.

"The play wasn't a penalty, but it's something everyone knows. you don't do", Collins continued. Manning's favorite target is a home-run hitter who can take the ball to the house from just about anywhere on the field once he separates from a defender.
