We will continue to keep you updated throughout the day as we await word on Beckham’s status for the Giants-Vikings game this Sunday night. It’s a game the Giants have to win in order to have any chance to make the playoffs. The Redskins currently lead the NFC East with a 7-7 record while the Giants are 6-8. Washington can wrap up the division with a win this weekend against Philadelphia.
