It also might be a chance for star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to play in a game for the first time since breaking his left ankle in a game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 8. ''We'll see,'' Shurmur said Saturday in reviewing the Giants' 30-17 win over the Lions in Detroit on Friday night.

Davis Webb took a step toward restoring confidence that he can be a capable backup quarterback for the New York Giants. Webb took advantage of his opportunity to play for Eli Manning, throwing a go-ahead touchdown in the second quarter to help the New York Giants beat the Detroit Lions 30-17 Friday night. ''Everyone says that wins don't matter in the preseason, but they leave a much better feeling in the locker room,'' Giants coach Pat Shurmur said.

Without stretching, New York Giants offensive lineman Chad Wheeler folds his 6-foot-7, 317-pound frame over far enough to place his palms flat on the ground. Like many NFL players, he does yoga. ''It's funny doing it as a team because a lot of guys haven't done it,'' Wheeler said.

Asked Thursday if the Denver Broncos would consider signing Colin Kaepernick as a veteran backup, general manager John Elway said the quarterback's opportunity to join the Broncos came and went in 2016. "Colin had his chance to be here," Elway told reporters, referencing the Broncos' trade discussions with the San Francisco 49ers during the 2016 offseason.

Odell Beckham Jr. looks as if he has fully recovered from ankle surgery. Giants coach Pat Shurmur declined to say if Beckham would play in his first preseason game Friday night against the Detroit Lions . The 25-year-old Beckham broke his left ankle nearly 10 months ago, putting his short and stellar career in jeopardy.

As he ramps up his activity level in joint practices with the Detroit Lions, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. remains confident that his contract situation will be resolved with the team. "I definitely think it's gonna work itself out," Beckham told reporters Thursday. It's a matter of time, just like anything in life, it's timing." Beckham, who is entering the fifth-year option of his rookie contract, has remained optimistic about signing a long-term extension with the Giants, who reportedly opened negotiations with the wideout in late July.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning had a typical response for Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Outspoken Jaguars CB Ramsey took a stab at Giants veteran and two-time NFL Super Bowl MVP Manning in an interview with GQ published on Wednesday

Kerryon Johnson was just a kid when his older siblings hit him with elbows while playing hoops. Sure, playing at Auburn and in the SEC did a lot to get the Detroit Lions' rookie running back ready for the NFL . ''My parents let it go because they knew I was being prepared for moments like this,'' Johnson said Wednesday after a joint practice with the New York Giants.

Jalen Ramsey is making headlines from his couch. Three days after being suspended for screaming obscenities at reporters, the Jacksonville Jaguars All-Pro cornerback is criticizing several NFL quarterbacks - and praising a few. In an interview with GQ magazine , Ramsey called Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen ''trash'' and said Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was ''overrated'' and a product of Kyle Shanahan's offensive system.

The Cleveland Browns said they are “not going to change” their minds about starting Tyrod Taylor over Baker Mayfield at quarterback this season. Baker Mayfield may have had an impressive debut for the Browns last week in their preseason games against the New York Giants. Mayfield — who went No. 1 overall in the NFL draft earlier this year — went 11-of-20 for 212 yards and had two touchdowns, helping the Browns to the 20-10 win.
