New York Giants LB Jon Beason Will not Need Surgery; Foot Will Be Immobilized for Six Weeks

New York Giants linebacker Jon Beason, who suffered a ligament tear and sesamoid fracture of his right foot last week, visited with Foot and Ankle Specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, North Carolina on Monday. And the news? Well, it was good.

The team announced on Tuesday that surgery will not be required for Beason, and that he'll be able to rehab after having his foot immobilized for six weeks (three weeks in a cast, three weeks in a walking boot).

“My visit with Dr. Anderson went as well as it could have yesterday. I’m happy that it was determined that I will be able to recover without surgery. My plan is to work as hard as I can during my rehab so I can be fully recovered around the start of the regular season opener on Monday night in Detroit," Beason said via Giants.com.

Avoiding surgery is always a positive, but this does not necessarily change Beason's timeline for a return. He is still expected to miss a total of 12 weeks (dating back to the injury) and could, barring any setbacks, be ready to return to the field for Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.

In Beason's absence, the Giants will use both rookie Devon Kennard and veteran Jameel McClain at MLB.

    RT @NYPost_Schwartz Tom Coughlin said Chris Snee’s surgically repaired elbow is bothering him and this he won’t work in this mini-camp. #nyg

    RT @ConorTOrr Odell Beckham still not working with the offense during live drills. #nyg

    Two early injuries: TE Daniel Fells leaves on a cart. DT Markus Kuhn walks off the field. Unclear what happened. Could be heat-related.

    These are concerning. Snee is concerning because he finally seemed healthy. I just hope we are being cautious. I hope Mosley or Richberg are getting all those reps for him.

    ODB is only concerning in that he’s missing time. It’s hard for a rookie to hit the ground running and missing time makes it harder.

    Kuhn can’t afford to miss time with two promising rookies ready to take his rotation and maybe roster spot.

      Fells and Kuhn were heat-related.

      A Snee update is scheduled for 3.

      And ODB missing time was also to be expected, although not at all good.
