Odell Beckham Jr. to have season-ending ankle surgery this week

Odell Beckham Jr.'s season is over, as the New York Giants' star wide receiver will have surgery on his fractured left ankle this week, according to the team.

Beckham was injured Sunday while trying to make a catch in the fourth quarter of a 27-22 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He left the field on a cart.

Beckham left the field Sunday in tears and with a towel over his face in obvious pain. He underwent further tests Monday morning that validated the original belief that surgery was necessary.

He was carted off the field Sunday after he suffered the injury with four minutes remaining in the loss, which dropped the Giants to 0-5. He had gone up for a catch and fell awkwardly to the ground, and Chargers players immediately called for medical help.

Beckham had five catches for 97 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers. His season ends with 25 catches, 302 yards and three touchdowns.

It will be the first time in his four professional seasons that Beckham didn't reach at least 90 catches, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns.
