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. Jan 6 - 2:02 PM

The Giants expect LT Will Beatty (leg) to be ready for the 2014 season opener.

Beatty broke his right leg in the meaningless Week 17 finale against the Redskins. He'll likely miss a chunk of the offseason. Depending on how severe the fracture is, Beatty should be ready in time for Week 1. He just wrapped up the first year of a five-year, $37.5 million deal. Beatty graded out near the bottom of Pro Football Focus' tackle rankings and gave up a league-high 13 sacks.

Giants LT Will Beatty left Sunday's Week 17 game against the Redskins with a a fractured leg.

In this meaningless game, Beatty took a shot to the inside of his right knee and went down in tons of pain. He had to be carted off, leaving Stephen Goodin to protect Curtis Painter's blind side. It's a fractured leg for Beatty, who just wrapped up the first year of a five-year, $37.5 million deal.

Updating a previous item, Giants LT Will Beatty's new five-year contract is worth $37.5 million.

The sum was announced at $38.75 million, but that includes $1.25 million in escalators available on Beatty's 2014-2017 salaries that may or may not be earned. Beatty's contract is fully guaranteed in 2013 and 2014, and he'll collect $24 million over the first three years. The deal's annual average is $7.5 million.

Giants re-signed LT Will Beatty to a five-year, $38.75 million contract.

The deal includes a $12.5 million signing bonus, and $19 million guaranteed. It's a nice haul for a player who finally stayed healthy last season after missing 14 combined games between 2010-11. Three days shy of his 28th birthday, Beatty allowed just three sacks and 22 hurries in 967 snaps last season. He was never expected to reach free agency. With Beatty locked up for $7.75 million annually, Branden Albert and Jake Long will both target at least $8 million a year.

USA Today's Mike Garafolo says the Giants and free agent LT Will Beatty have just "minor issues" to resolve in contract negotiations.

Speaking to Giants fans, Garafolo tweeted, "I wouldn't sweat Will Beatty's free agency. Lots of time to resolve what I'm hearing are minor issues." Beatty has long been considered New York's top free-agent priority, and it appears a deal is likely before March 12. Retaining Beatty would leave the Giants a lot more comfortable on the offensive line heading into free agency and the draft.

Giants GM Jerry Reese says there has been "some conversation" with free agent LT Will Beatty.

Beatty is the Giants' top free agent, along with Martellus Bennett, but neither is a likely option for the franchise tag. It might be wise for teams to let their free-agent offensive tackles hit the market because the talent pool is deep, therefore lowering their price tags.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News considers free agent LT Will Beatty an option for the Giants' franchise tag.

Vacchiano "hears" that re-signing Beatty is the Giants' highest offseason priority. The franchise number for Beatty would be about $9.7 million, but the Giants' preference is a long-term deal. Vacchiano doesn't envision the G-Men using the franchise tag at all, but Beatty would be the most likely option if the team feels it'd be a steppingstone toward an extension.

ESPN New York says re-signing impending free agent LT Will Beatty "might be the Giants’ highest priority" among in-house free agents.

Beatty and TE Martellus Bennett are the two free agents the Giants appear dead-set on keeping. Beatty, 28 in March, battled back issues last offseason, but started 15-of-16 games in 2012, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 12 overall tackle. He's part of a strong offensive tackle free-agent group.

ESPN New York considers LT Will Beatty the Giants' "biggest" free agent.

Despite some ongoing back woes, Beatty was solid while guarding Eli Manning's blind side in all 16 games. Turning 28 in March and entering his prime, he'll be looking for franchise left tackle kind of money. We have Beatty ranked sixth among free agent tackles, behind only Ryan Clady, Andre Smith, Branden Albert, Jake Long and Sebastian Vollmer.

Giants LT William Beatty (back) returned to practice on Monday.

"He practiced a little bit," was all coach Tom Coughlin would offer up for comment. The Giants' season opener is just eight days away, but it's looking like Beatty will be ready after missing a majority of camp.
Tue, Aug 28, 2012 12:10:00 PM

Giants LT William Beatty is "still struggling" with his back issues.

Beatty has missed both of the Giants' preseason games, and is sounding shaky for Week 1. The Newark Star-Ledger believes RT David Diehl would shift to the blindside with Sean Locklear at right tackle if Beatty isn't ready for the regular season. Beatty's back woes date back to the beginning of the offseason.

Giants LT William Beatty (eye, back) is fully participating in training camp.

"The best remedy was time," Beatty said of the offseason back injury he suffered while weightlifting. Barring a setback, Beatty will open the season as Eli Manning's blindside protector after starting 10 games in 2011.

Giants LT William Beatty (back) says he'll be ready for the start of training camp.

Beatty's back woes slowed him throughout OTAs and minicamp, but he doesn't sound like a candidate to begin camp on the active/PUP list. That's not a guarantee his issues won't resurface, of course. Second-year pro James Brewer and journeyman vet Sean Locklear are behind Beatty on the depth chart.
Mon, Jul 9, 2012 01:42:00 PM

Giants LT William Beatty has missed several consecutive OTA practices with a back problem.

"He has a bad back," coach Tom Coughlin said. "That has kind of slowed him down. He is improving every day. I don't know that he will make the minicamp (in June)." James Brewer is currently practicing as the Giants' starting left tackle. Beatty's injury should only be a concern if it costs him training camp time.
