The New York Giants received good news on Tuesday regarding linebacker Jon Beason's foot injury sustained in last week's practice.
After examining the MRI, X-ray and CT scan, doctors determined that Beason will not require surgery to repair a ligament tear and a small fracture to the sesamoid in his right foot.
The team announced that Beason's right foot will be immobilized for six weeks as the first part of the rehabilitation process. The initial speculation was that Beason would be sidelined at least 12 weeks.
"My visit with Dr. Anderson went as well as it could have yesterday," Beason said Tuesday. "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."
Beason's recovery timetable means he's almost certain to miss training camp. There's a good chance the Giants will have to ease him back in for the start of the regular season in September.
