Giants LT Will Beatty (PUP) will undergo rotator cuff surgery and is done for the season.
Beatty started the season on the PUP after tearing his pectoral lifting weights in May. He returned to practice three weeks ago, but the Giants had been hesitant to activate him. This news explains why. With Beatty done for the year, rookie Ereck Flowers will continue to man the left tackle spot with Marshall Newhouse on the right side. Beatty is owed $6.675 million in salary and bonuses next season with a cap hit of $9.175 million. With Flowers set to man the left side for the foreseeable future, it would not be shocking if the Giants moved on. Nov 12 - 11:10 AM

NJ Advance Media's Jordan Raanan reports the Giants are unlikely to activate LT Will Beatty (pec, PUP) before Thursday's deadline.

Beatty tore his pec lifting weights in May. He returned to practice three weeks ago, but coach Tom Coughlin appeared unsure if Beatty would be able to contribute this season during an interview earlier in the week. If Beatty is not activated by 4 p.m. EST on Thursday, he will revert to season-ending injured reserve. The Giants will move forward with rookie Ereck Flowers at left tackle and Marshall Newhouse on the right side if Beatty is not activated.
Nov 12 - 10:11 AM

Giants LT Will Beatty (pec, PUP) will resume practicing Wednesday.

It starts a 21-day window for the Giants to activate Beatty after he tore his pec working out in May. He should be back in the lineup sometime in the next couple weeks. Rookie LT Ereck Flowers has been obliterated in pass pro, but has proven to be a strong run blocker. Beatty could push him to right tackle.
Oct 21 - 11:43 AM

The Giants remain unsure of when LT Will Beatty (pectoral, PUP) will resume practicing.

Beatty is eligible to come off the PUP list this week, but it sounds like he'll stay there at least another week or two. The Giants' offensive line got ripped apart in Monday's loss to the Eagles, giving renewed urgency to Beatty's return.
Oct 20 - 3:14 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Giants OT Will Beatty (pec, PUP) could resume practicing this week.

Beatty is eligible to both practice and play this week. It is unclear what position Beatty will fill when he returns. Beatty has been a left tackle most of his career, but the Giants may not want to move rookie Ereck Flowers off the blindside. Beatty could take over for Marshall Newhouse, who has struggled at right tackle. Either way, Beatty's return should help solidify New York's offensive line.
Oct 19 - 10:30 AM

Giants placed LT Will Beatty (torn pec) on the reserve/PUP list.

Beatty tore his pec lifting weights in May. He was given a five-to-six month timetable when the injury occurred, so he could be ready to come off the PUP when he is first eligible October 25 against the Cowboys. Rookie Ereck Flowers will start at left tackle while Beatty is sidelined.
Sep 1 - 4:19 PM

Giants placed LT Will Beatty (torn pec) on the active/PUP list.

Recovering from late-May surgery, the question is if Beatty will avoid the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games of the season. Beatty will not be ready for Week 1, leaving first-rounder Ereck Flowers to begin the year on Eli Manning's blindside. We expect Beatty to hit reserve/PUP.
Jul 30 - 5:13 PM

Giants LT Will Beatty suffered a torn pec lifting weights and will be sidelined five months.

He's undergoing surgery Wednesday afternoon. The Giants devoted a lot of resources to shoring up their offensive line this offseason, and losing Beatty is a huge blow after he rebounded in 2014 following a down 2013 campaign. First-round rookie Ereck Flowers or Justin Pugh will likely be tasked with protecting Eli Manning's blind side into November. The front five is back to being a huge question mark for the G-Men.
May 20 - 3:01 PM

The Giants' website doesn't expect Will Beatty to move to right tackle.

There's been speculation Beatty could be replaced if the Giants can upgrade on him in the draft or free agency, but it would be a surprise if he didn't remain on Eli Manning's blindside. Beatty has an $8.15 million cap hit in 2015 and is under contract for the next three seasons. After a dismal 2013 campaign, Beatty flourished in first-year OC Ben McAdoo's quick-hitting 2014 passing attack, grading out as a top-12 left tackle in Pro Football Focus' grades. He was PFF's No. 14 overall tackle.
Jan 24 - 5:44 PM

ESPN's Dan Graziano believes the Giants could move on from LT Will Beatty after this season.

Beatty has three years and $26.5 million remaining on his current deal. The Giants can get out of his contract next offseason by making him a June 1 cut. Beatty is PFF's No. 7 left tackle through eight weeks, but has struggled with injuries and consistency throughout his career. His future with the Giants will be determined by how he plays over the final nine games.

Giants LT Will Beatty (leg) will make his 2014 preseason debut on Saturday night.

Beatty claims his previously fractured right leg is in "great football shape." The G-Men desperately need Beatty to rediscover his 2012 form after he struggled mightily throughout 2013, before going down. PFF has charted fill-in LT Charles Brown as one of the worst tackles in the league this preseason.
Thu, Aug 14, 2014 11:43:00 AM

Giants LT Will Beatty (leg) expects to be ready for the start of training camp.

Beatty broke his leg in the season finale and sat out the spring. OL coach Pat Flaherty indicated Beatty will have to come back and earn his starting job after a miserable 2013. Charles Brown, James Brewer, and Justin Pugh all have the ability to line up at left tackle. Brown is Beatty's main competition.

Giants LT Will Beatty (leg) is expected to remain sidelined until training camp.

Beatty said last month that he was ahead of schedule, but the G-Men have little to gain by pushing their left tackle's progress.
Thu, May 29, 2014 03:56:00 PM

Giants LT Will Beatty (leg) said he's ahead of schedule in his rehab.

Beatty broke his right leg in the season finale and is still questionable for Week 1. He'll be given every opportunity to hold down the left side of the Giants' line, but the G-Men have a number of versatile linemen that can play multiple positions up front. Charles Brown and Justin Pugh are left-tackle options.
Tue, Apr 22, 2014 01:16:00 PM

Giants LT Will Beatty underwent surgery Monday to repair his fractured right tibia.

Per beat writer Ralph Vacchiano, Beatty "should be ready" for the start of the 2014 season. His training camp availability may be more murky. At coach Tom Coughlin's year-ending presser, he spoke openly of potentially moving RT Justin Pugh to left tackle. Beatty is coming back to the G-Men, but may have to compete with an offseason acquisition to start on the right side.
