Odell Beckham Jr., the New York Giants' star wide receiver, will miss the remainder of the NFL season due to a fractured left ankle, Giants coach Ben McAdoo announced Monday. Beckham will undergo surgery on the ankle this week, with McAdoo saying "it's a sad situation."

Beckham exited Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers in the fourth quarter in obvious pain after landing awkwardly while trying to make a catch. He finishes the season with 25 catches for 302 yards and three touchdowns.

Also Sunday, the Giants lost receiver and return man Dwayne Harris for the season to a fractured foot, while receivers Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard both injured their ankles.
