Odell Beckham Jr. goes through team drills with Giants

WATCH: Eli Manning sacked as NBC introduces his starting offensive line

Just 10 first downs and three points were all the New York Giants offense had to show from their Sunday night loss to the Dallas Cowboys, a display of ineptness that has cast a shadow of doubt over a promising season.

Getting a healthy Beckham back would certainly help.

But with Beckham stuck on the sidelines in sweatpants, with Beckham unable to suit up due to the high ankle sprain sustained Week 2 of the preseason against Cleveland, with Beckham wisely instructed to wait at least one more week before putting that ankle to the real test of cutting, sprinting and leaping, the Giants offense was terrible. If he's not, we'll be forced to play without him.

"There's no hiding the fact he's a playmaker", Manning said. "Rod is going to give the young guys throughout the defense opportunity to play a lot, opportunity to improve, and that's a key here". "It's different when he's on the field, but on there or not, we have to play better than what we did and we can and we will". The approach will be to keep working.

"I personally don't want to get up at 6:30 every morning to get here for 7 o'clock treatment", Beckham said.

North Korean ally China and neighboring Russian Federation hold veto power on the Security Council. The draft with the proposed penalties has already circulated the council members on Wednesday.

"There's 16 other teams who are 0-1 right now, so everybody had to lose that first game". "We got him out there [to practice]". "We'll be fine. We just have to slow down, everybody take a breath and just run the plays the way we've been running them all spring and all summer".

Two of those losses came at Arrowhead Stadium, which will be the site of Sunday's game against Philadelphia. He suffered the ankle sprain on August 21.

The 29-year-old's performance in the opener Monday against New Orleans sure looked like that of the franchise player.

"If you look at the film and really understand football, it's not detrimental", Hart said. You never know. Everybody heals differently ... "And even knowing I wasn't in the best position to play, there was still that temptation - and maybe it might have been growth for me to be like, 'I'm gonna actually have to rest up and make that decision, because everything in me was like, 'We're here".

Theoretically, things should only get better as the Giants offense was tied for the second-fewest points scored a week ago throughout the league.
