National Football League stars Watt, Beckham Jr suffer injuries

The major loss is obviously Odell Beckham Jr. who the Giants have lost for the season.

The star receiver suffered the injury Sunday when he leaped for a fourth-quarter pass and came down awkwardly under the weight of Chargers defender Casey Hayward.

What is known is that Beckham's injury leaves a huge void on the roster, and with three other receivers also coming out of Sunday's game with significant injuries, the Giants have to scramble to fill their 53-man roster with healthy players.

Brandon Marshall sustained an ankle injury Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, and he will undergo season-ending surgery. He lasted four years with the Broncos before being benched by former coach Josh McDaniels at the end of the 2009 season and traded to the Dolphins a few months later.

Dwayne Harris, who also returns punts and kickoffs, will have surgery Tuesday for a broken foot, while Sterling Shepard was hurt on the same series as Marshall. He sprained his left ankle in a preseason game on August 21, missed the season opener at Dallas and was limited against Detroit.

The Giants want Beckham to be a Giant for life - co-owner John Mara has declared this desire, more than once.

This season could not be more of a disaster in NY.

Marshall famously said he wouldn't be able survive an entire season with the Jets, hence his decision to join the Giants. Folk was placed on injured reserve with a "minor injury classification". The Vikings released running back Stevan Ridley after only five days with the team, making room on the active roster for wide receiver Michael Floyd before Monday's game with the Bears. Coach Sean McDermott said Clay will miss "multiple weeks". He's second on the team with 20 catches and leads Buffalo with 258 yards, and tied for the team lead with 2 touchdowns.
