Giants' Marshall to undergo season-ending ankle surgery

The team announced on Monday that Odell Beckham Jr. and Dwayne Harris will have procedures to fix their fractures, one in Beckham's ankle and one in Harris' foot.

His announcement comes the same day the team announced Odell Beckham Jr. will have season-ending surgery for his broken left ankle later this week.

Marshall suffered an ankle injury against the Chargers Sunday as the Giants lost their fifth consecutive game, 27-22, at MetLife Stadium.

McAdoo said he is not certain what kind of prognosis Beckham will have post-surgery, or if the injury will affect him for the rest of his career. It didn't explain the schedule change.

The 12th-year receiver announced Monday that he will have season-ending ankle surgery, according to Giants Wire. Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard both hurt their ankles in the second quarter and Dwayne Harris fractured his foot in the second half.

Beckham had 25 catches for 402 yards and three touchdowns in just four games this season.

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

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is expected to play Sunday against the Chargers after missing their loss to the Baltimore Ravens with a back injury.

The Giants want Beckham to be a Giant for life - co-owner John Mara has declared this desire, more than once.

Marshall was one of four Giants wide receivers knocked out of Sunday's game.

The Giants couldn't win with one of the best players in the league. The Giants also re-signed receiver Darius Powe to their practice squad.

The Kansas City Chiefs improved to 5-0 with a 42-34 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday night, but injuries to WR Chris Conley (11-175 receiving) and tight end Travis Kelce (29-353 receiving, 2 TDs) cast a cloud on their pass-catching depth.
