Still seen as a staple in the heart of Big Blue's defense, the 29-year-old Beason re-signed with the team in March on a three-year, $19 million deal.
Having previously suffered a left Achilles' rupture before going under the knife for microfracture surgery on his right knee, Beason's health has been an issue throughout his career.
We'll update this post as we learn more about Beason's status in New York.
UPDATE: Beason will need surgery after suffering a sesamoid fracture in his right foot, NFL Media's Kimberly Jones reported Friday, per a source aware of the diagnosis. He's expected to miss 12 weeks, and the team later announced the news.
