A lot can happen between now and Week One, and if you’re a New York Giants fan, you’re hoping the early problems of the OTAs don’t last long. Injuries big and small have hit key players and one can hope that these problems disappear come September.

On Monday afternoon, head coach Tom Coughlin spoke with the media to address where his team is at after their initial training sessions. So far, a few key players have been working through injuries.

Larry Donnell, who recorded six touchdowns and 623 yards last season has developed tendinitis in his Achilles during the OTAs. Coughlin told the media that the tendinitis has been ongoing and Donnell has had it since college, but he is still wearing a boot to be safe.

Last season’s breakout wide receiver and the NFL’s offensive rookie of the year Odell Beckham Jr. was also reported to have hamstring issues. Beckham reportedly sat out of the team’s last practice session as a precaution.

Among the other injuries, it was announced last week that starting offensive tackle Will Beatty is the first Giant who will miss a large portion of the upcoming season. After tearing his pectoral muscle during a weight lifting session, Beatty will undergo surgery and will be out from anywhere between five and six months.

What the Giants can hope for is that everyone makes a quick and easy recovery. With what is shaping up to be a strong NFC East, they’re going to need everyone in prime shape.
