Giants MLB Jon Beason needs toe surgery and is out for the season.

The oft-injured Beason once again aggravated the right toe injury that has plagued him since the summer, and this time he can't play through it. The ex-Panther has a ligament tear and small fracture in his sesamoid bone. Beason's absence leaves a gaping hole in an already thin Giants linebacking corps, especially against the run as Jameel McClain fills in at MIKE. Beason, 29, was in the first season of a three-year, $16.8 million contract.
Oct 27 - 12:11 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) said he's contemplating season-ending surgery, and gave himself a 50-50 chance to play again in 2014.

Beason is in Charlotte visiting Dr. Robert Anderson for at least the third time since initially hurting his foot over summer. "I’m still deciding if the smart thing is to go ahead and get it fixed and get ready for next season," Beason said. He's appeared in parts of four games this season and has yet to make a real impact at less than 100 percent. Jameel McClain has been filling in at MIKE.
Oct 22 - 9:23 AM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) expects to know by Wednesday whether he needs surgery.

Beason is visiting a specialist on Tuesday. Even if he gets good news, it sounds like he'll be no better than 50-50 to suit up when the G-Men come off their bye in Week 9.
Oct 21 - 4:36 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason will visit Dr. Robert Anderson regarding his latest toe injury this week.

As beat writer Jordan Raanan notes, "not good." In Sunday's loss to Dallas, Beason aggravated a toe injury that has plagued him since training camp. The Giants signed Beason to a new three-year, $16.8 million contract in March.
Oct 20 - 4:33 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason aggravated his toe injury in Sunday's Week 7 game at Dallas.

The oft-injured Beason has been battling this toe issue for more than a month now. It's a major concern for the run defense of the Cowboys. Although Beason's X-rays came back negative, he was ruled out for the game.
Oct 19 - 5:38 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) is active for Sunday night's Week 6 game against the Eagles.

Beason returns after missing the last three games. DE Robert Ayers (neck) is also active. Inactive for the Giants are RB Rashad Jennings, OG Brandon Mosely, LB Spencer Paysinger, OL Adam Snyder, DE Kerry Wynn, OT James Brewer, and DT Jay Bromley.
Oct 12 - 6:53 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (questionable, toe) is likely to return for the Giants' Week 6 game against the Eagles.

Beason has been sidelined since aggravating his troublesome toe during Week 2. Beason will wear a special shoe he is calling his "secret weapon" in an attempt to protect the toe. Beason will slide back in as the middle linebacker in base packages, with Jameel McClain moving back outside.
Oct 11 - 8:16 AM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Despite the "Q" tag, Beason is expected to play in Sunday night's game against the Eagles. It's not promising news for struggling LeSean McCoy.
Oct 10 - 1:06 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) is targeting a return in Week 6.

Beason didn't play last week to avoid setbacks. He's expected to resume practicing and is on track to return after missing the last three games.

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) is not expected to play Sunday against the Falcons.

Beason was targeting a Week 5 return, but he didn't do much at practice this week. Jameel McClain will continue to man the middle, with Mark Herzlich at strong-side linebacker. Beason is a big part of the Giants' run defense.
Oct 5 - 10:10 AM

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.
