Giants WR Beckham not changing his game, just how he reacts
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. isn't changing the way he plays, just the actions that led to his recent one-game suspension for multiple violations of safety-related playing rules.
A contrite Beckham returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since being suspended for his actions, including a helmet-to-helmet hit, in a game against the Carolina Panthers on Dec. 20.
Beckham said it was tough being away from his teammates. He refused to comment on his suspension, saying he simply abided by the ruling.
The dynamic second-year pro also said he has not spoken with the Panthers' Josh Norman, the cornerback with whom he had a game-long run-in that included pushing, shoving and a lot trash talking.
The Giants offense sputtered without Beckham in a 49-17 loss at Minnesota on Sunday.
