Giants WR Beckham looking to make improvements

Odell Beckham Jr. received a lot of work in his first game since breaking his left ankle 11 months ago.Not surprisingly, his body was aching afterward.”I’m not going to lie, I was sore after the game,” Beckham told reporters on Thursday. “First time in, whatever how many days it was, 300-something, getting hit out there. I felt good to make it out, but I was feeling it. I was feeling it the Monday after. We’re here healthy, get back in and do your rehab, and get ready for this week.”The Giants visit the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and Beckham will look to follow up on what seems like a good opening game — 11 receptions for 111 yards.But the three-time Pro Bowler wasn’t all that impressed with his performance in the 20-15 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.”There were a lot of things I went and looked at. Stuff that I felt like I could’ve done better,” Beckham said. “There’s little chances we had in the game that could’ve been a difference. It’s just about connecting on them, and just getting the small details down. Whether it’s getting the depth of your route, which is something I’ve always felt like I needed to work on.
