“He was limited today. We’ll use the next 48 hours with all of these guys to determine who’s playing and who’s not. We’ll let you know 90 minutes before the game.

“For all of these guys that were limited in practice we’ll make sure we huddle up over the next 48 hours and make our decisions,” Stefanski said via the team’s official website.

OBJ’s best season in the NFL was back in 2015 when he had 1,450 receiving yards with 13 receiving touchdowns to his name for the Giants. He will hope to complete his fitness tests and return in time for the Browns as he faces a make-or-break season in 2021.
