Odell Beckham JR has been limited in practice this week and sat out yesterday. It was also reported that the Giants receiver would sit out in Fridays training but that hasn’t stopped Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles preparing to meet one of the NFL’s most hyped up receivers.
In todays press conference, Chip Kelly claimed that he “knows how competitive Beckham is” and seemed adamant that he would play.
Chip Kelly was very adamant that he expects Odell Beckham, Jr. to play Monday night for the Giants. "Highly competitive player. He'll go."

The LSU starlet has 428 yards and 3 touchdowns to his name already this season and the last time he faced the Eagles had 185 yards on 12 catches and a touchdown..he’s a big time player that both Chip Kelly and Bill Davis would be silly to leave out of their prep, regardless of his injury status.
Obviously it would be a huge advantage for Bill Davis and the Eagles secondary if one of the NFL’s brightest stars was sidelined for their NFC East rivalry game and with Randle also said to be “day-to-day”, this could be yet another big game in the making for the Eagles secondary.
So far the Eagles have faced a Cowboys team without Dez and a Redskins team without DeSean Jackson but failed to capitalise on both scenarios. Is this the week the Eagles finally get one up over a weakened NFC East rival?
