Wholesale Cheap Youth New York Giants Odell Beckham Jr. Nike Royal Blue Team Color Game Jersey

It is clear that Odell Beckham Jr. isn’t yet 100 percent healthy, but Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz isn’t preparing for Sunday’s game any differently because the Giants wide receiver has yet to go off for a big game through the first two weeks.

Beckham, still feeling the effects of an ankle injury suffered in the preseason against the Browns, was sidelined for the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys and caught just four passes for 36 yards in Monday night’s 24-10 loss to the Lions at MetLife Stadium.

Schwartz believes that the further Beckham gets removed from the August 22 injury, the bigger a concern he is when it comes to defending the Giants’ offense.

“Put it this way,” Schwartz said Tuesday at the NovaCare Complex. “We have to expect him to be 100 percent. If we expect anything less, we’re in the wrong business because he has a full week to prepare. He obviously was well enough that they played him for 30, 33 plays I think it was.

“He’s another week away from that, another week ahead of his rehab and things like that, so we’ll have to be ready for 13, and we’re going to have to be ready for him being the same guy we remember from last year. And he’s a very difficult player to handle, and their offense has missed him the first couple weeks. It’s our job to keep him from being a factor– well, he’s going to be a factor, but keep him from being a game-changing factor. It’s going to take good team defense to do it. It’s not going to be one guy that’ll do it.”

The Eagles secondary is undermanned heading into Sunday’s game against Beckham and the Giants with top cornerback Ronald Darby out with a dislocated ankle and safety Rodney McLeod’s availability uncertain due to a hamstring injury.

Darby’s absence thrusts second-year cornerback Jalen Mills likely into a one-on-one matchup against Beckham. Last season, Beckham exploded for a season-high 11 catches for 150 yards but was held out of the end zone in a Week 16 Eagles victory.

Sunday, the Eagles’ patchwork secondary that included Corey Graham at safety and rookie cornerback Rasul Douglas playing extended snaps surrendered 251 Alex Smith passing yards and a touchdown but lost the game 27-20.

Schwartz dismissed the notion of moral victories, but it will once again be a M*A*S*H unit in the secondary for the Eagles this week against Beckham, Sterling Shepard and the Giants.

“We lost the game,” Schwartz said. “So there’s no consolation prizes and hey, we had injuries. Injuries are a part of the game. We have multidimensional players that can go in and fill different positions. We had to make it through. That’s our job. I don’t want to give any gold stars for doing what our job is.”
