Beckham has missed the past two games due to a bruised quad. The Giants have two games remaining, starting with a visit to the Indianapolis Colts on Dec. 23 and ending with a Dec. 30 regular season finale against the Dallas Cowboys.

The 26-year-old has 77 catches for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns through 12 games. This is Beckham's fourth 1,000-yard receiving campaign in five seasons.

Linebacker Alec Ogletree (illness), safety Michael Thomas (family illness), Spencer Pulley (calf), and wide receiver Russell Shepard (ankle) also missed practice.

Additionally, the Giants activated wide receiver Cody Latimer off injured reserve and placed defensive back Antonio Hamilton on the IR.
