Giants Injury Update: Jon Beason nearing return


By on 8/09/2014 08:50:00 AM

New York Giants linebacker Jon Beason says he expects to be ready for week 1 of the regular season. Beason is recovering from a broken bone in his foot, but Dan Graziano at ESPN.com reports that the veteran is getting closer to returning to the field.




Beason went down during OTA's in June. He suffered a sesamoid bone fracture and a torn ligament in his foot. The injury required surgery and a 3-month recovery process.

Sesamoid fractures can occur when an athlete plants his foot sharply, causing the big toe to bend too far upward. Beason says he was changing directions when his injury occurred.

Although Beason has not been able to take part in full practices, he's still on the field soaking up knowledge with his teammates and running.

When he returns, Beason is expected to play the middle with either Jameel McClain or rookie Devon Kennard on the strong side. Jacquian Williams is projected as the weakside linebacker.
