EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will miss his third straight game with a quad injury.

The Giants announced on Friday that Beckham, linebacker Alex Ogletree, center Spencer Pulley and receiver Russell Shepard won’t play Sunday when the Giants (5-9) face the Colts (8-6) in Indianapolis.

Defensive lineman Kerry Wynn is questionable with a thumb injury.

Beckham didn’t practice this week. Ogletree (concussion), Pulley (calf) and Shepard (ankle) were injured in a loss to Tennessee on Sunday.

Beckham said Thursday he wants to play again this season. His last chance comes against Dallas in the regular-season finale.

The 26-year-old Beckham was injured on the final play against Philadelphia on Nov. 25. He played the following week against the Bears and threw and caught a touchdown pass in the Giants’ 30-27 win in overtime.

Beckham has 77 receptions for a team-high 1,052 yards and six touchdowns.

He missed most of last season after breaking his left ankle in the fifth game.
