Odell Beckham Jr., Giants coach Tom Coughlin discuss injured rookie's status

Rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Giants coach Tom Coughlin got together before practice on Tuesday and shared their levels of frustration.

The first-round draft choice out of LSU has been sidelined since the first day of training camp when he aggravated a hamstring injury.

"We just had a discussion, player/coach," Coughlin said. "I see his frustration and he sees our frustration.

"Don't make anything more than it is. It's a coach wanting a player on the field and a player wanting the player on the field. When you're cleared to play you'll be ready to go and you'll earn the respect of your teammates by virtue of what you do on the field and how well you study and work right now."
