Odell Beckham Jr. injury history
Beckham has dealt with numerous injuries during his NFL career. Many of them have been in his left leg, which is the one that he hurt during the Super Bowl against the Bengals.
Below is a recap of all the maladies that Beckham has dealt with since his college days.
— November 2012. Beckham suffered a hip injury during LSU’s final regular-season game and missed the second half as a result of it. He was able to return for the team’s bowl game, so he didn’t miss any full games that season.
— June 2014. During his spring camp with the Giants, Beckham suffered a hamstring injury. He managed to participate in training camp despite the problem, but it eventually caused him to miss time.
— August 2014. Beckham’s June hamstring injury lingered and eventually, he aggravated it during training camp. He missed the preseason and the Giants’ first four games of the season before he was able to make his NFL debut.

— November 2016. Beckham stayed relatively clean over the next two seasons — minus a couple of minor in-game knocks that didn’t cause him to miss time — before he suffered a thumb injury late in the 2016 season. He was able to play through the injury but it required maintenance.
— August 2017. Beckham suffers a sprained ankle during the preseason. He missed the final two preseason games and the Giants’ first regular-season game due to the injury, which was in his left leg.
