He is to have surgery this week on his broken left ankle, an injury he suffered Sunday.

The Giants have announced that Beckham fractured his left ankle in the closing minutes of the game against the Chargers, and he will have to undergo surgery sometime this week to fix the damage.

The team is off to an 0-5 start and in Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Charges they lost both Odell Beckham Jr and Dwayne Harris to broken bones. At the top of the list was Beckham, who is slated to undergo surgery at some point during the week, according to the team. It didn't explain the schedule change.

One of the players that was supposed to be okay with just a sprained ankle is wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

The 12-year veteran announced the news in an Instagram post late Monday. The team signed Tavarres King and promoted Travis Rudolph from its practice squad to help fill the gap. Before suffering his ankle injury, Marshall had caught 18 passes for 154 yards this season.

Giants head coach Ben McAdoo would later double down on the bad news, saying that Beckham's season over.

McAdoo spoke to Beckham after the game. Levitz said that is not surprising, but insisted that the Giants doctors did nothing wrong in allowing Beckham to play.

There are plenty of wide receivers out there who are free agents or are on other teams' practice squads. They'll join Roger Lewis Jr., who came out of Sunday's game as the only healthy receiver on the 53-man roster. He was one of four Giants receivers knocked out of the game, against the Chargers. It seems likely. He was a regular on Inside the National Football League over the last three seasons before Ray Lewis replaced him this season because of scheduling conflicts between filming and the Giants' practice schedule.
