In a preseason game against the Browns, Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught a pass and then took a helmet to the knee.
He was able to walk a considerable distance to the locker room before the doctor reached him.
After being checked out by the medical staff, it was determined that Beckham has a sprained ankle.

Players and fans alike had something to say about the injury — both about the fact that it happened to Beckham and that it happened in the preseason.
Jarvis Landry, Dolphins wide receiver and Beckham's college teammate, made his feelings about the preseason clear.

Eddie Royal, a fellow wide receiver in the league, is not a fan of low hits.

Greg Jennings thinks that’s the last time we should see Odell in the preseason.
Odell was extremely fortunate that injury wasn't a lot worse. Time to rest him up until the season opener! #MNF— Greg Jennings (@GregJennings) August 22, 2017
Le’Veon Bell also thought the hit was dirty.
