Odell Beckham Jr. was just one of four receivers the Giants lost to injuries in a crushing defeat to the Los Angeles Chargers in NFL Week 5. OBJ, however, was dealt perhaps the most severe blow: suffering an ankle fracture that ended his season.

After his surgery the following day, Beckham was visited by his longtime friend & fan, Drake. The friendship between the 30-year-old rapper and the 24-year-old NFL star has lasted years. Most memorably, Drake called a concert to a halt in February just for an OBJ jersey signing. The Giants receiver seemed in higher spirits after the surgery, posting an encouraging note to fans via social media.

Thank u all for your prayers. You better believe Ill be back better than ever. God Speed.
