While the Giants wide receiver flew to Dallas with the team ahead of their regular-season opener against the Cowboys, he may sit out as he continues to heal from an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact Schefter is adding that although Beckham is a game-time-call, "there is real doubt" about whether or not he will play. Dallas held Giants quarterback Eli Manning to 400 total passing yards.

Beckham told SNY's Taylor Rooks on Friday that he was "feeling a lot better", but had a "long evening of rehab" ahead.

Coach Ben McAdoo said all along that if the Giants' medical staff cleared Beckham, he would play on Sunday.

The best Giants teams have been built around defense, and a year ago they found their swagger on the defensive end once again on their way to an 11-5 record and a wild card berth.

Although the New York's defense will likely give Prescott and the Cowboys' offense some trouble in Week 1, potentially not having Beckham on the field changes the dynamic of this game.

How can I listen to New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys on the radio?

Beckham is nursing a left ankle sprain he sustained during a preseason game. But don't be fooled; Marshall is aging, leaving Beckham the one true deep threat on this Giants team.

Since missing the first four games of his rookie season with a hamstring injury, Beckham has missed just one other game, after being suspended for his infamous altercation with Josh Norman in December 2015. "In the third year in the system - not all the guys have been here three years - but I expect them to think if they are in graduate school with the scheme". It puts the pressure on all of us to make sure we get it right. "We're getting ready to play an NFC East team, the NFC East champion".

Even if the Giants need Beckham on the field to play their best, they have to believe they don't.

With that dominating upset, it just goes to show you never really know what's going to happen week to week.

The negative Dallas Cowboys rumors don't end there, as many National Football League analysts are picking the Seattle Seahawks to represent the NFC in the #Super Bowl.
