EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants apparently can breathe a little easier.

Leading receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall seemingly avoided major injuries in a meaningless preseason game.

Coach Ben McAdoo said Tuesday that the team's wideouts are being listed as day to day after being hurt in the first half of Monday night's preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns. Despite escaping without a major injury, McAdoo did not rule out playing them in either of the final two preseason games.

Attorney Mehri wants to head NFLPA

WASHINGTON (AP) Civil rights attorney Cyrus Mehri, who co-wrote the NFL's Rooney Rule, says he plans to challenge DeMaurice Smith for his job as executive director of the NFL Players Association.
