The heart of the New York Giants' defense is back on the field.
"He brings a presence that we've been missing," defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins said Monday, via the New York Daily News. "He's a leader, a natural leader, an intense person, and it's great to have him back."
Beason is confident that he will be ready to play in Detroit on Monday night, but a final decision won't be made until later in the week.
The Giants' defense hemorrhaged an average of 35 points per game until Beason arrived in an October trade last season. That average improved to 18.3 the rest of the way.
