news / 10.15.2017 Giants Brought A Piece Of Injured WR Odell Beckham To Denver For Inspiration
DENVER -- Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. didn't make the trip to Denver for Sunday's 23-10 win over the Broncos. Beckham was back home in the early stages of his recovery from the season-ending ankle surgery he underwent on Monday.
But Beckham was at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in spirit. And a piece of his equipment made the trip.
Punter Brad Wing, who is one of Beckham's closest friends, brought the receiver's helmet on the trip.
Safety Landon Collins discovered the helmet on the Giants' sideline during the game.
"I saw B-Wing pointing at it, so I was like, 'What is he pointing at?' " Collins said. "I saw it was Odell's helmet, so I was like, 'Shoot, we've got to represent.' "
Collins said he tried to put the helmet on, but Beckham's "head is too small." Collins instead held up the helmet at the end of the Giants' improbable upset over the Broncos.
"We just want to remind him that we haven't forgot about him," Collins said. "We're going to represent for him."
Beckham's injury leaves a big void, as the Giants are trying to replace his historic production and the energy he brings to the team.
