The New York Giants have waived Michael Bowie days after finding out that the offensive lineman had been charged with assault and battery in Oklahoma. The Giants announced the decision Wednesday along with three moves. Bowie is accused of grabbing his girlfriend by the neck during a fight at her home in Bixby, Oklahoma, then broke two televisions and punched a hole in the wall.

The New York Giants seemed to have caught a break when their Week 1 opponent, the Dallas Cowboys, lost running back Ezekiel Elliott to a six-game suspension. Receiver Odell Beckham dismissed the notion he might miss the season opener after suffering an ankle injury Monday night, but ESPN’s Jordan Raanan and Dan Graziano reported Beckham could miss a week or two of the regular season. Beckham hurt his ankle on a low hit by Cleveland Browns safety Briean Boddy-Calhoun. It was a dangerous hit, and it put into perspective why Beckham was considering a large insurance policy as he tries to get a long-term deal from the Giants.

Odell Beckham Jr.'s ankle injury could potentially keep New York Giants wide receiver out of the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys, sources told ESPN's Jordan Raanan and Dan Graziano. The Giants open their season in less than three weeks on the road Sept. 10 against the Cowboys. It's "not out of the question he could miss a week or two of the regular season," according to one source. Beckham sprained his ankle Monday night against the Cleveland Browns. An X-ray during the game was negative. He underwent an MRI on Tuesday that confirmed a sprained ankle. Despite jogging into the locker room and expressing optimism after the game, Beckham felt "very sore" on Tuesday, according to another

Coach Hue Jackson is letting the drama build to a crescendo. Following weeks of training camp practices and two exhibition games, Jackson said Tuesday he still hasn't decided if Brock Osweiler, rookie DeShone Kizer or Cody Kessler will start the team's season opener on Sept. 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- After sitting out three weeks with a strained hamstring, New York Jets running back Matt Forte returned to practice Tuesday and claimed he will be ready for the season opener against the Buffalo Bills. "No doubt," he said. Forte, 31, said he hopes to play Saturday night against the New York Giants, but that hasn't been confirmed yet. The Jets want to see how he progresses throughout the week before making that determination. "That's my goal," Forte said. "I don't know what the coaches' plan is, but that's my plan." Forte, injured July 31 in the third practice of training camp, went through a similar ordeal last summer. He injured the same hamstring in a precamp workout and

In a preseason game against the Browns, Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught a pass and then took a helmet to the knee. He was able to walk a considerable distance to the locker room before the doctor reached him. After being checked out by the medical staff, it was determined that Beckham has a sprained ankle. Players and fans alike had something to say about the injury — both about the fact that it happened to Beckham and that it happened in the preseason. Jarvis Landry, Dolphins wide receiver and Beckham's college teammate, made his feelings about the preseason clear. Mike Vick also saw the hit. So did Arian Foster. Eddie Royal, a fellow wide receiver in the league, is not a

The New York Giants apparently can breathe a little easier. Leading receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall seemingly avoided major injuries in a meaningless preseason game. Coach Ben McAdoo said Tuesday that the team's wideouts are being listed as day to day after being hurt in the first half of Monday night's preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns.

The first white NFL player has taken a knee during the American national anthem, joining several of his black colleagues to protest racial and social injustices in the US. Seth DeValve, a tight end for the Cleveland Browns, knelt down with his teammates to protest those injustices during a recent game against the New York Giants. In doing so, he has entered his name into a contentious debate that has roiled professional football since former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided last year not to stand during the pre-game ritual, saying he was protesting the oppression of people of color in America.

With a chance to try something different, Army and Navy instead chose to stick with tradition. The annual Army-Navy football game will be played in Philadelphia four times from 2018-2022, returning to its most frequent host city. Military academy officials and Army-Navy game sponsor USAA announced Tuesday at Philadelphia's City Hall that Lincoln Financial Field, home of the NFL's Eagles, will be the site of the 2018, '19, '20 and '22 games.
