Odell Beckham Jr. hasn’t practiced since joining the Miami Dolphins, but coach Mike McDaniel says that’s a strategic decision.

McDaniel told reporters Beckham’s absence from the team’s offseason program is designed to preserve his body for the regular season.

Everybody is excited to see players when they first get here specifically, and a player of that caliber, everyone is pumped up. But systematically what we try to do is learn the player and develop a relationship with them and adjust to their body on their timeline so we can have the most beneficial, communicative relationship of maintaining health. Long story short, working into playing with the Miami Dolphins, between myself and [head athletic trainer] Kyle [Johnston] we decided you guys were going to have to wait. But that’s just due to the individual process that we are very consistent with when new guys come to the team. We take nothing of assumption and make sure when guys are on the field, there’s no setbacks. We’re obviously applying that to him.

This article will be updated soon to provide more information and analysis.
