Jon Beason has fracture and torn ligament in right foot

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.

His effectiveness for the season as a whole is very much in doubt--without Beason, Tuck, Joseph and W. Hill the defense is a shell of the strong showing of late last season.  The team has done little to address serious deficiencies at LT, TE and the need for an athletic LB to cover the opposition TE (i.e. Witten)--a problem dating back many years.  Drafting team captains and Syracuse  "reaches" will not translate into a winning season.  They will probably not match last season's 7-9 record, even in a projected weak division.

These GD OTA's , Minicamps or whatever the hell they are called. Not worth it. Somebody gets seriously hurt, every year.

considering what could have happened this is good news, a fracture is generally better than a bad sprain especially the high ankle variety.


if you have to get injured sooner rather then later is good for team and player alike, heal well jon the jints need your talent and experience.

Both Beason and the Giants dodged a bullet. Beason will be out for training camp and the preseason. With outside chance, he misses the opener.

It could have been worse , ACL , MCL , 12 weeks he will be ready for the season .

It could have been worse. An over zealous rookie (Zack Martin) could have physically taken out our best inside linebacker. Thank goodness we didn't draft that guy!

Ok Lisfranc same deal I'm assuming the worst and will be happy if it's better.

Hopefully it's nothing serious. Thankfully he has time to heal.

Beason has an injury riddled history. Obviously this is very very bad

Agreed. I'm glad it's just a fracture. Repair it maybe he misses the first 2 weeks. Much better than an acl, Lisfranc, or Achilles which would have been the year easy.

@Amilcar Cuevas or it could be plantar fasciitis. Which isn't bad unless it's torn or really strained.
