Eli Manning was missing his best option in his 200th consecutive start for the New York Giants.

Beckham missed the Giants' season-opening loss at Dallas after spraining his ankle in a preseason game against the Browns on August 21.

"It felt good. It felt good just to be back out there", Beckham said. "If we can run our plays very detailed and be disciplined in the way we execute, usually that can overcome familiarity".

With alarms sounding everywhere within earshot of the Giants with a warning that the season is in jeopardy after a bad performance by the offense in the opening-game loss at Dallas, Manning is adding some perspective to the hysteria. "Something about - it's just when you put that helmet on, it's a different mode". But following practice, Beckham sought to temper expectations, revealing he had suffered a high-ankle sprain and could miss upwards of eight weeks. How many times has the Pro Bowl receiver emerged at just the right time, shedding a defender (or two) or leaping above one to make an acrobatic catch, providing his quarterback a safety net that even when things fall apart, he can break a big play? Their next opponent will be against the Detroit Lions, who is the second-straight team they will play from the 2016 playoffs. Ben McAdoo will speak to that on Thursday afternoon. "No one got going".

Smith finished the opener 28-of-35 passing for 368 yards and four touchdowns, but that's old news to him and the rest of the Chiefs. There is also an outstanding veteran in Brandon Marshall and second-year wide receiver Sterling Shepard, who has the ability to break plays. He was in the open field when he had a drop on third-and-12 with just under 13 points left.

Manning said the Cowboys had some new wrinkles for the game. Without him, the Giants would be lucky to win six games.

On Wednesday, it was speculated by the Giants that there is "a lot of optimism" that Beckham will play in Week 2, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. You're going to get coached up and there's things we can clean up, for sure, but you can't get defensive, can't get sensitive. He watched his teammates flop in the season opener against the Cowboys.
