There was a report shortly after the end of the Giants' latest loss that wide receiver Odell Beckham would have surgery on his injured ankle, but that shifted to pending after the team announced Beckham fractured the ankle in the fourth quarter against the Chargers.

Head coach Ben McAdoo later confirmed that Beckham's season is over due to the injury.

Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard both hurt their ankles in the second quarter and Dwayne Harris fractured his foot in the second half.

Following the game, the Giants weren't ready to announce whether Beckham would have season-ending surgery. He was carted off the field and did not return to the game. NY quickly starting adding more bodies on Monday - the team promoted Travis Rudolph from their practice squad and they are expected to bring back Tavarres King.

As far as any long-term effect to Beckham's health, McAdoo said he has not gotten into any of that.

McAdoo was also asked if bringing in Victor Cruz, who was cut by the Bears before the season, was an option.

Beckham Jr landed awkwardly underneath Howard and snapped his ankle, leaving his team - already short-staffed after losing three other receivers earlier on - to lose 27-22.

It is possible their top receiver in next week's Sunday night primetime matchup against the Broncos in Denver could be Roger Lewis Jr. - a second-year player undrafted out of Bowling Green.
