The hip bruise was first reported last Wednesday, which has held him out of practice and the preseason opener against the Redskins. He downplayed the injury last week and said he would play if it were the regular season. Beckham 's absence should free up extra first-team reps Friday for either Rashard Higgins, Jaelen Strong or Derrick Willies.
