Giants linebacker Jon Beason
, who lost all but four games last season to a toe injury, beleives he can be "the best in the game" if he stays healthy
in 2015, per NJ.com.
Injuries have limited Beason to a mere 24 games over the last four years. He understands that he's always one hit away from being sidelined again, but he also doesn't want to put too much thought or concern into it.
"You go into it and try to dot all the I's and cross all the T's and make sure you do everything possible to ... address the injury," he said. "But also what are the compensation patterns, what is the muscle that something else could happen to or other body part? Everything is connected and it is tough to gauge what is next, but you feel like you knock on wood and hopefully this year everything works out because you do your due dilligence."
Beason added that his goal is to play in all 16 games this season.
