New York Giants lose star receiver Odell Beckham to injury!

New York Giants lose star receiver Odell Beckham to injury!

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

Things just went from bad to worse for the New York Giants.

The G-Men will be without their star receiver Odell Beckham for at least eight weeks after he suffered a broken ankle in Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

The injury occurred with just over four minutes to play in today’s final quarter when Beckham landed awkwardly after trying to leap up and catch a high pass from quarterback Eli Manning.

Beckham was carted off the field in tears, an image that pretty much sums up New York’s dismal 2017 season.

With Sunday’s 27-22 loss to the Chargers, the Giants fell to 0-5 on the season.

The Chicago Bears fell to 1-3 on Thursday night, this after suffering a 35-14 loss to their NFC North rivals the Green Bay Packers.

After watching his offense fail to produce for a second straight week, Bears head coach John Fox has opted to make a change at quarterback.

The team announcement Monday that rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky would be replacing Mike Glennon as the Bears starting quarterback.

“He’s got that maturity and confidence you have to have in that position,” Fox said. “We didn’t give ourselves a chance in two games. We have to change that.”

Glennon went 93 of 140 (66.4 percent) for 833 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions in four games as started this season for Chicago.

Meanwhile, Trubisky completed nearly 70 percent of his passes for 3,748 yards, 30 touchdowns and six interceptions during his 13 games as starter for the North Carolina Tar Heels last season in college.

The Bears will face off against the Minnesota Vikings (2-2) next week on Monday Night Football.

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook out for the season

Terrible news for Minnesota Vikings (2-2) fans.

Dynamic running back Dalvin Cook will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL in Sunday’s 14-7 loss to the Detroit Lions.

“I expect him to come back and be the same that he was,” Coach Mike Zimmer told reporters of Cook.

Cook had put together an amazing opening few games recording 354 yards on the ground while averaging 4.8 yards per carry.

The second-round back out Florida State had also hauled in 11 receptions for 90 yards this season.

The Vikings, who have been without starting quarterback Sam Bradford since Week 1, will now turn to running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon to pick up the slack on offense.
