Jon Beason says he's 'really close'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Giants linebacker Jon Beason is intensifying his workouts as he tries to make it back from a foot injury. He expects to play in the regular-season opener in three weeks.

"I feel like I'm really close, but I have to go out and do it and I want to test it," he said. "That's going to confirm it for me. Obviously, we play a lot of games on turf. Turf is more rigid than grass, and we practice on grass, so it's going to feel really good on grass."

Beason suffered a ligament tear and a small fracture to the sesamoid in his right foot on June 12. One key to his recovery is his footwear; he's wearing customized orthotics and a size 13 cleat, one-half size larger than his normal size.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Giants middle linebacker Jon Beason (foot) remains hopeful he'll be ready for the regular-season opener Sept. 8 at Detroit.

"It's coming along," Beason told ESPN.com. "We still have time. I'm just trying to listen to the staff, who I trust, and trying to listen to my body. But we are playing on Monday night [in the season opener] and it's still a little over three weeks before the game, so a lot can happen between now and then."

If Beason isn't ready, Jameel McClain likely would get the start.

Jon Beason will not need surgery


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Giants linebacker Jon Beason will not undergo surgery for his injured right foot, reports the team's official website.

Beason’s foot will be immobilized for six weeks (three weeks in a cast and three in a walking boot) as the first step in his rehabilitation.

"I'm happy that it was determined that I will be able to recover without surgery," Beason said. "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."
