New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a monster of a rookie season in 2014, and apparently, he did it while hobbled by a hamstring injury.

Beckham, who introduced himself to Cowboys fans this season with maybe the most ridiculous one-handed touchdown catch we’ve ever seen (while being interfered with by Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr), told reporters after the Pro Bowl that he played all year with two tears in his hamstring.

The injury occurred in training camp and kept him out of the first four games of the season, but he still finished with 91 catches, 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns.

They healed up enough to where I could play with them,” Beckham said, per the New York Post, “but they were never truly good and I’m still just working on them and trying to get ready.”

Beckham believes he’ll be back at full strength in time for camp this year.

“I should be good by training camp,” he said. “The plan is to play at full strength next season, and I definitely hope to do it. I’m just looking forward to getting healthy.”
