Just one day after saying he felt rejuvenated from their bye week, New York Giants’ wide receiver Odell Beckham was a limited participant during Thursday’s practice session as he recovers from a hip injury.

On Wednesday Beckham said that he was “somewhere around 85, 90%” healthy at this point. He said he was somewhere around 65% heading into their game against the Los Angeles Rams in London, but still managed to play in the contest after a very close game-time decision.

“It was pretty, pretty close to a game-time decision. They were like, ‘We got eight minutes to turn it in.’ I was warming up. I think I slipped on like the second or third route and I didn’t know if I was going make it through the game,” Beckham, who caught five passes for 49 yards in the contest, said on Wednesday. “But thankfully I did. We got a bye week, came at the right time. Had some time to recover and get worked on pretty much all break.”

At this point his limitations in practice may just be precautionary and it would be a surprise if Beckham doesn’t suit against the Philadelphia Eagles this upcoming Sunday. That being said, he was asked about his status for the game and noted that nothing would be decided until Sunday.

“But it feels 10 times better,” he said about the hip injury. “I’m able to practice, which is the best part. It’s never fun not being out there. That’s for sure. So we’ll see Sunday. I’m getting there.”
