June 13: LB Jon Beason has a sesamoid fracture and torn ligament in his right foot (Jones, June 13).
Beason was injured Thursday during practice.
The fracture will require surgery, and the expected recovery time is 12 weeks.
A potential 12-week recovery would put Beason’s status for Week 1 in doubt.
However, Beason is confident he’ll be able to return for the season-opener (Traina, June 13).
12:37 p.m.: Tom Coughlin said that Jon Beason felt pain in the bottom of his foot during practice (Schwarz, June 12).
The potential severity of the injury is not yet known.
During practice on Thursday, LB Jon Beason limped off the field after suffering an apparent injury.
After visiting with trainers, Beason was carted off the field (Vacchiano, June 12).
All indications are that trainers are focusing on Beason’s right leg but he was able to walk off the field under his own power before riding in the front of the cart to receive further medical attention. Beason has had a history of knee problems and underwent microfracture surgery on his right knee in 2012.
Beason signed a three-year contract worth $16.8 million earlier this off season.
