Giants Injury Update: Jon Beason nearing return

By on 8/28/2014 10:00:00 PM

New York Giants Linebacker Jon Beason is progressing through the rehabilitation of the sesamoid fracture in his great toe well, but suffered a minor setback this week. It was reported by Ebenezer Samuel that Beason has battled food poisoning this week and had to take the week off from his rehabilitation program.

Beason suffered a sesamoid fracture in his great toe during OTA's this summer and required surgery. The rehabilitation period for this injury is typically 3 months depending on how the athlete progresses. Beason has apparently been working more on cutting drills, which is a good sign for his progress. Beason's bout with food poisoning is not going to harm his rehabilitation that much, besides from sitting out this week there have been no setbacks with his rehabilitation.

The sesamoid bones in the foot are under the great toe and allow for tendons to run through the bones to assist the great toe in flexion. A fracture to these bones typically occurs while running and cutting. Beason has said that he plans on returning for week one of the regular season and without any major setbacks this seems like a realistic goal.
