Giants MLB Jon Beason (knee) did not suffer any setbacks in his return to action Week 3 against the Redskins.
Beason only played 36 percent of the Giants' defensive plays, but he should be much more involved on 10-days rest against the Bills. A healthy Beason still may lose snaps to Uani' Unga on passing downs, but he should improve the Giants' run defense as long as he is able to stay on the field. Sep 26 - 10:54 AM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (knee) is active for Week 3.

Beason will be making his season debut against the Redskins. It's a boost for a Giants defense that's been thoroughly underwhelming through the season's first two games.
Sep 24 - 8:09 PM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reported Jon Beason (knee) is expected to play Thursday night.

Beason said he was "feeling better" after practicing in full on Tuesday. Beason's return is a downgrade to the Redskins' running game, but Alfred Morris and Matt Jones are still decent options in what remains a good matchup. Unai' Unga will return to the bench.
Sep 24 - 8:38 AM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (knee) practiced in full on Tuesday.

Beason said he's "feeling better," and the New York Daily News believes he's trending toward suiting up for Thursday night's game against the Redskins. Beason would be a huge boost for a defense that's been thoroughly underwhelming through its first two games.
Sep 22 - 3:50 PM

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said MLB Jon Beason (knee) will practice Tuesday.

Beason got in work at the end of last week as well. The New York Post said "it does not sound" like Beason will play against the Redskins Thursday night, but that could change if he puts in a couple good practices. Unai` Unga has been starting at middle linebacker in Beason's place.
Sep 22 - 11:12 AM

The New York Post said "it does not sound" like Giants MLB Jon Beason (knee) will play on Thursday night.

Beason saw some practice work at the end of last week and was listed as a limited participant in Monday's "practice." It was always going to be difficult for Beason to come back on a short week, however, and the Giants may choose to get him some extra rest. Unai' Unga will continue to start in Beason's place.
Sep 22 - 9:39 AM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (knee) is listed as doubtful for Week 2.

The G-Men will again be without their top run defender when they do battle Sunday with the Falcons. Tevin Coleman offers big fantasy upside this week.
Sep 18 - 2:29 PM

Updating a previous item, Jon Beason (knee) saw work during positional drills on Thursday.

Coach Tom Coughlin said Beason would be tested out on a side field during practice. That test apparently went well, and he will likely be listed as limited on the practice report. This is a step in the right direction, but Beason's status for Week 2 is still questionable at best.
Sep 17 - 12:38 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (knee) will do work on a side field during practice Thursday.

Coach Tom Coughlin said the work will allow the team to determine how well Beason has progressed. If he does well, there is a chance Beason can practice on Friday and play. Despite the development, Beason is still highly doubtful for Week 2.
Sep 17 - 11:18 AM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Beason claimed his absence from Thursday's practice was only a precaution, but apparently the injury is more serious than he let on. It's unclear if Beason will be back for Week 2. The absence of Beason is a huge blow to New York's run defense, which was already going to be problematic. Someone in Dallas' running back corps is probably going to have a big Sunday night game.
Sep 11 - 2:05 PM

Jon Beason (knee) expects to play in Sunday's opener against the Cowboys despite missing Thursday's practice.

He was just treating Thursday as a maintenance day. "Just sore. No point in pounding on it again," said Beason. "Trust me, I don't want to miss Dallas. It means everything to me." Expect Beason to be active for Sunday's grudge match at JerryWorld.
Sep 10 - 2:58 PM

Jon Beason (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday.

Beason was a limited participant on Wednesday. Late-week downgrades are always a concern, and he should be considered questionable for Week 1 against the Cowboys. The Giants are desperately thin at linebacker behind Beason.
Sep 10 - 12:50 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (knee) practiced on Monday.

It is unclear if Beason got in a full session, but even limited work would be a great sign for his Week 1 status. The Giants showed they feel good about Beason's recovery by cutting Jameel McClain and Ashlee Palmer this weekend.
Sep 7 - 11:31 AM

The Giants are "optimistic" MLB Jon Beason (knee) will play Week 1.

Beason went down with a knee sprain in the Giants' second preseason game. On Tuesday, he was spotted running, backpedaling, and doing individual drills on a side field. The Giants are a better defense with Beason manning the middle.
Sep 2 - 9:55 AM

The New York Post reports Giants MLB Jon Beason (sprained knee) is "seriously in doubt" for Week 1.

Beason has missed 38 games the last four years, including all but four last season. Beason says he'll do everything "humanly possible" to make sure he plays in the opener, but even if he makes it back for Week 1, it is a solid bet he misses games at some point. With Beason injured, a mess at safety and Jason Pierre-Paul's future uncertain, the Giants will be a defense to target early and often this season.
