Jon Beason Out for the Season: The New York Giants confirmed on Monday that linebacker Jon Beason will undergo surgery on his injured right foot. Beason will be placed on Injured Reserve and miss the rest of the 2014 NFL season.
“Let’s get him right,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “We got the guy on the field, he tried it, it actually became a little bit different kind of an injury but the same area. He gave it everything he had and he had the doctor’s approval. Unfortunately, it didn’t work.”
Beason suffered a ligament tear and fracture to the sesamoid bone in his right foot during an OTA practice on June 12. He aggravated the injury in Week 2 against Arizona and Week 7 against Dallas. He missed three games after the game against the Cardinals.
October 27, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: Aside from LB Jon Beason (foot), not practicing on Monday were RB Rashad Jennings (knee), RB Peyton Hillis (illness), DT Cullen Jenkins (calf), and LB Spencer Paysinger (illness).
“He’s not ready to go,” said Head Coach Tom Coughin of Jennings. “He’s day-to-day.”
“I just need to get to the point where I can get back to cutting,’’ Jennings said. “Right now it’s linear, then eventually we’ll get to side to side.”
“(Hillis is) sick,” said Coughlin. “We’ve got a couple of guys. I’m telling you, these vacations are no good. They come back, they’re throwing up. They probably caught it from the kids or something. We’ve got two or three of them that are… (Spencer) Paysinger same way. He’s sick too.”
CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back/hamstring) and OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) were limited.
“(Rodgers-Cromartie) was out there,” said Coughlin. “Last week we were encouraged because of the number of treatments that he got. We’ll have to see…I thought there was (improvement). He did some plays and took some plays where he didn’t work. I think it’s a little better than it was, but whether or not it’s ready to be where we would want it to be, I don’t know.”
