by Michael Hurcomb |
(3:54 pm ET) Although he didn't practice for a second straight day Thursday, Giants linebacker Jon Beason expressed optimism he might play Week 3 vs. Houston despite a foot injury.

"It feels a whole lot better, and when I say a whole lot, that is good," Beason said. "Not a little, based on the way it felt on Sunday. Sunday to Tuesday was huge."

Beason said he will travel to Charlotte, N.C., Friday to meet with renowned foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson.

"Based on how it feels [I don't think it's fractured]," Beason said. "When I first did it [in June], I couldn't walk. Sunday night I felt I could walk on it. Monday I felt a little bit better. Tuesday I felt drastically better, which is good."
