Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) expects to return for Week 5 against the Falcons.
Beason appears to have avoided major injury with his Week 2 aggravation. The Giants haven't missed Beason against the Texans and Redskins, but badly need him back so they can stop stretching Mark Herzlich at strong-side 'backer. SLB Jameel McClain has been manning the middle. Sep 26 - 12:50 AM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) is inactive for Week 4 against the Redskins.

It's unclear if Beason even made the trip. Jameel McClain will fill in at middle linebacker, with Mark Herzlich manning the strong-side. Also inactive for the Giants are WR Odell Beckham, LB Devon Kennard, OT Charles Brown, DE Kerry Wynn, OT James Brewer and DT Jay Bromley.
Sep 25 - 6:57 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) is doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Redskins.

Jameel McClain will make another start at middle linebacker for the G-Men. The Giants are a middle-of-the-road defense against the run. We like Alfred Morris as mid-to-low RB1 play this week. Beason may be back for Week 5.
Sep 24 - 1:28 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) returned to practice on Tuesday, getting in a limited session.

Beason was technically "limited" on Monday, but it was just an approximation, as the Giants didn't actually practice. Beason's aggravation of his offseason injury clearly isn't as serious as first feared, but he remains much more likely to return in Week 5 than suit up for Thursday's game against the Redskins. Jameel McClain will again start in his absence if he can't go.
Sep 23 - 3:18 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) is considered a "long shot" to play in Thursday night's game against the Redskins.

Beason might be able to practice on a limited basis this week, but the quick turnaround isn't helping his chances after Beason's Week 2 aggravation of his offseason toe injury. Look for Jameel McClain to start against the Skins.
Sep 22 - 4:05 PM

Giants declared MLB Jon Beason, WR Odell Beckham, OL James Brewer, OT Charles Brown, DT Jay Bromley, DE Kerry Wynn, and LB Devon Kennard inactive for Week 3 against the Texans.

Beason is out indefinitely with his foot injury. Jameel McClain will start at the MIKE spot. Beckham will look to make his NFL debut in Week 4 against Washington.
Sep 21 - 11:39 AM

Coach Tom Coughlin confirmed Jon Beason (foot) will miss the Giants' Week 3 matchup with the Texans.

Beason's season was thought to be in jeopardy after he aggravated the foot injury that sidelined him most of the summer against the Cardinals Week 2. Beason shed his protective walking boot on Thursday, however, and spoke as if he could play this week. There is still no timetable for Beason's return, but it now appears he will be able to get back on the field this season. Jameel McClain should start at middle linebacker in Beason's absence.
Sep 20 - 8:21 AM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) is out indefinitely.

Per the team, Beason "may" visit a foot-and-ankle specialist after aggravating his June injury in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Beason suffered a sesamoid fracture in minicamp, and was sidelined the better part of three months. It's unclear how serious the aggravation is, but Beason's season could be in jeopardy. It's a huge concern for the Giants' shaky defense.
Sep 16 - 5:11 PM

ESPN New York expects Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) to miss extended time.

Beason re-aggravated the toe injury that cost him all of training camp in Sunday's loss. He's currently awaiting the results of an MRI, but should be considered highly questionable for Week 3. Jameel McClain will replace Beason if he misses time, with Spencer Paysinger playing on the strong-side.
Sep 16 - 11:44 AM

Giants MLB Jon Beason is headed for an MRI on his troublesome right foot.

Beason left the stadium with a walking boot on, a major concern as he's battled right foot woes for months now. "Again the toe," said coach Tom Coughlin. Mark Herzlich was forced to step in as the Giants lost to the Cardinals Sunday.
Sep 14 - 5:56 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason exited Sunday's Week 2 game with a toe injury.

It's a big concern because Beason missed almost all of training camp with a torn ligament and fractured bone in his toe. It's unclear at this point whether the new injury is an aggravation. Mark Herzlich is in at Mike 'backer.
Sep 14 - 3:20 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) will start Monday night's opener at Detroit.

This was expected after Beason returned to practice last week, and was listed as probable on the final injury report. We suspect Beason will indeed resume an every-down role. He's an LB3 with low-end LB2 upside in IDP leagues.
Sep 8 - 4:12 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) is listed as probable for Monday night's opener against the Lions.

Beason will start, but isn't going to play every snap. He practiced on a limited basis this week after missing the entire preseason. Beason should split time with Jameel McClain before returning to his three-down role.
Sep 6 - 8:02 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) returned to practice Monday and expects to play Week 1 against the Lions.

Whether Beason plays a part-time or full-time role remains to be seen. Monday was his first practice since tearing a ligament and breaking a bone in his toe in June, so there's ground to be made up. The Giants are going to lean on their defense early on while the offense tries to work through its preseason problems. Beason is an integral part of the Giants' run defense at the MIKE spot.
Sep 2 - 9:42 AM

The Giants expect MLB Jon Beason (foot) back at practice Monday.

Beason suffered a sesamoid fracture in his foot during June workouts. His Week 1 availability against the Lions may end up going down to the wire, but the Giants seem optimistic. He's a critical cog in New York's run defense.
