Odell Beckham Jr suffered a scary-looking leg injury on a low hit during preseason game

Odell Beckham Jr. may have narrowly avoided a serious leg injury when he took a low hit during Monday's preseason game against the Cleveland Browns.

The play came early in the second period on a deep out-route. As Beckham caught the ball near the sideline, Briean Boddy-Calhoun of the Browns came in low and delivered a blow with his shoulder pads to Beckham's knee. 

Beckham's knee appeared to collapse and he was slow to get up and went back down after starting to walk off the field. However, he did eventually limp off the field under his own power.

According to ESPN, Beckham suffered a sprained ankle and will undergo further evaluation. He was also evaluated for a concussion and passed. 

Replays showed just close Beckham came to suffering something far more serious than a sprained ankle.



When Beckham tried to walk back to the locker room, he collapsed in the hallway and was down for several seconds before medical personnel arrived.

He did eventually get back up and limp to the locker room.
