Jon Beason doesn’t need surgery on injured foot

Linebacker Jon Beason’s foot injury is going to keep him out off the field for a while, but it won’t require him to have surgery.

Beason tore a ligament and fractured the sesamoid in his right foot at practice last week and early reports indicated that he would need an operation. Beason was examined by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte over the weekend, however, and learned that would not be the case.

“My visit with Dr. Anderson went as well as it could have yesterday,” Beason said, via the team’s website. “I’m happy that it was determined that I will be able to recover without surgery. My plan is to work as hard as I can during my rehab so I can be fully recovered around the start of the regular season opener on Monday night in Detroit.”

That timeline isn’t much different than the one laid out before Beason learned that he wouldn’t need surgery. His foot will be immobilized for the next six weeks as the first step in what was called a three-month process when the injury was originally diagnosed. The Giants signed Terrell Manning to go with Mark Herzlich, Jameel McClain and Devon Kennard as potential fill-ins while Beason is making his way back.

    So the guy who never played a down in the NFL is better than the guy who came in and turned one of the worst defenses in the league into one of the best?

    Good news that surgery isn’t needed. Bad news that rehab is so long.

    Get well Beas.

    Don’t feed the trolls!! They live off of making absurd comments that don’t have any merit to the topic.

    All you haters can keep hating on my Giants all you want but that’s because we have a great team to root for. We’ll miss Jon Beason’s leadership and I hope he enjoys his retirement made easier without a need for surgery but we already have Terrell Manning stepping in as our new MLB.

    If we can only get Will Hill to come back then our defense might be OK.

    Best news possible no surgery.But who is going to step up between McClain,Kennard and Herzlich?Can’t see Manning competing for that job.

    McClain, by default, is our best MLB now.
