“It’s Just Football” Odell Beckham on Low Hit

Browns cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun took preseason serious as he hit Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. low which resulted in a sprain ankle for the star receiver. Many expected a serious injury after watching the hit and fans are upset that such an aggressive move was done in preseason. Some questioned if it was a legal hit, others say it was a dirty play.

According to the Associated Press, Beckham responded to the dirty play claims:

“I don’t know, it’s just football I guess, preseason.

I’m not really the judge. It’s just football in my opinion.”

Giants head coach Ben McAdoo also made a statement:

It’s football. You can’t hit a guy high, you can’t hit a guy low, you can’t hit him in the middle,” McAdoo said. “It’s one of those balls that Eli [Manning] had to drive it and he left his feet. That is a tough play for a DB

Beckham wasn’t the only receiver from the Giants that left with an injury last night. Brandon Marshall and Tavarress King were also injured in the 6-10 loss against the Browns.
