No decision on Beckum
By Matt Ehalt
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Giants have not decided whether to activate tight end Travis Beckum off the PUP list before Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
They have a three-week window to do so that began this week, and would have to decide by Saturday afternoon if they hope to have him against Dallas. Beckum is trying to return after tearing his ACL in last year's Super Bowl.
"He looked OK," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said of Beckum, after practice on Friday.
Beckum started practicing this week, and per PUP list rules, the team has three weeks to determine if they want to activate him, and then make a corresponding roster move if they choose to do so. If they decide not to activate Beckum, they will either put him on injured reserve or release him.
Beckum is in his fourth year with the Giants, and has caught 26 passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns in his career.
POLUMBUS FINED: Redskins tackle Tyler Polumbus was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness in last week's game versus the Giants, as he leg-whipped an opponent on a running play, according to an NFL spokesperson.
