EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Odell Beckham Jr. has been cleared to practice although the star New York Giants’ receiver did little work in team periods at the opening of the first mandatory minicamp under new coach Pat Shurmur.

Beckham, who missed several voluntary practices in the final phase of organized team activities in the past month, looked good running pass routes Tuesday.

He appeared to cut well testing the left ankle that was broken on Oct. 8 against the Chargers, sidelining him for the final 11 games.

Just the fact that Beckham was there entering the final year of his contract was a positive.

It was a good day overall in terms of attendance. Everyone was there, including defensive tackle Damon Harrison who missed many OTA practices.

Many other players around the league, however, did not show up for mandatory practice:

Arizona running back David Johnson skipped the first day of the Cardinals’ camp amid reports that the sides are discussing a new contract.

 All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald is not attending the Los Angeles Rams’ camp as he continues his quest for a lucrative new deal.

 Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan is skipping camp while his agents negotiate a new deal for the two-time Pro Bowl lineman.

 Khalil Mack, entering the final season of a rookie contract set to pay him $13.8 million, is seeking a long-term deal with Oakland.

COLTS: Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck attempted his first passes in front of reporters Tuesday as Indy opened its three-day minicamp.

Luck only threw a handful of balls before he finished with a lob of about 20 yards. While the ball Luck used appeared to be slightly smaller than a regulation NFL ball, it was a major step forward.

Coach Frank Reich said last week that Luck was “real close” to throwing. But Luck wasn’t expected to begin that phase of his recovery until after minicamp.

Luck continues to recover from surgery on his right shoulder that took place in January 2017.

RAMS: A jury in St. Louis on Tuesday ordered the team to pay former running back Reggie Bush $12.5 million for a severe knee injury he suffered in 2015.

The jury found the Rams 100 percent liable for Bush’s injury and ordered the team to pay $4.95 million in compensatory damages and $7.5 million in punitive damages, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
