OBJ enters locker room before halftime in big loss
3:46 AM ET
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. walked off the field and into the locker room before the final play of the first half in a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night. He did not return to the sideline until after the opening kickoff of the second half.
The Giants and Beckham said he needed an IV for the second time in three games.
“I was cramping, so I was trying to get an IV,” Beckham said. “The halftime break is really only five or 10 minutes. If I can use a couple of extra seconds to go and get an IV and come out, that’s really all it was.”
There were two seconds left in the first half and the Giants were trailing 24-6 when Beckham strutted into the tunnel. He didn’t appear happy. The Giants ran one final play before halftime with their offense on the field.
Beckham was nowhere to be seen when Sterling Shepard caught a desperation 20-yard pass on the final play of the half. Two weeks ago, Beckham left early in a loss to the New Orleans Saints to get an IV.
