News: Beason (toe) is inactive for Thursday's game against Washington, the Giants' official site reports. Impact: With Beason out Thursday, look for Jameel McClain to once again man the middle linebacker slot for the Giants in Week 4.(RotoWire, )

News: Beason (toe) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game at Washington, Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record reports. Impact: The Giants seem to be taking a prudent approach by deeming Beason all but out for Week 4, which would mark his second consecutive absence. If he's indeed inactive Thursday, Jameel McClain will again man middle linebacker.(RotoWire, )

News: Beason (toe) was limited during Tuesday's practice, the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Beason sat out Sunday's game against Houston, but holds a realistic chance of being ready for Thursday's divisional contest versus the Redskins. However, considering the veteran Beason's history, the Giants will probably keep him limited during practice, even if they expect to use him Thursday. As a result, Beason's status should be checked closer to kickoff.(RotoWire, )

News: Beason (foot/toe) would have been limited in practice Monday, if the Giants had held drills, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: On Tuesday, Beason will likely fulfill the expectation of practice participation, at least in some capacity. The test could prove to the Giants that he can contribute to the linebacking corps Thursday at Washington, but he could ultimately earn questionable status for the first time since he was knocked out in Week 2 with the injury.(RotoWire, )

News: After aggravating his foot in Week 2 against the Cardinals and sitting out this week against Houston, Beason has a realistic chance of playing against Washington on Thursday, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. Impact: Following Beason's trade last season from Carolina, he has quickly become a leader on the Giants' defense and was named a captain this season. Although the defense played well this week against the Texans, he should resume his role as a starter if he does play Thursday.(RotoWire, )

News: Beason (toe) is out for Sunday's game against Houston. Impact: Beason indicated that his foot had made significant progress in recent days, but not enough for the Giants to give him any chance of playing this week. He should be considered questionable for Week 4.(RotoWire, )

News: Beason is slated to visit a foot specialist Friday in Charlotte, NC, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Beason was sidelined at practice for a second straight day Thursday. However, despite the inactivity, he relayed afterward that his foot feels "drastically" improved, according to Jordan Raanan of Beason further believes that his current issue is tied to loose scar tissue, which, if true, could clear the linebacker for Sunday's contest against the Texans. However, he would seem hard-pressed to push aside a healthy Jameel McClain for many snaps at middle linebacker, if Beason is active.(RotoWire, )

News: The Giants are still holding out hope that Beason's foot injury is minor enough for him to return in the next few weeks, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. Impact: We'll know more over the next few days. Beason is a long shot to play this week, and it could turn out the injury is serious after all.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 16, 2014
News: Beason (toe) is expected to miss a few weeks of action, at the very least, Newsday's Tom Rock reports. Impact: After aggravating the foot injury that sidelined him for much of the spring and summer, Beason is set to visit a foot specialist in Charlotte later this week for a clearer diagnosis on his condition. The Giants are hoping that the issue will clear up for the linebacker after a few weeks of rest, but there's a possibility he could require season-ending surgery. Mark Herzlich stepped in at middle linebacker after Beason left Sunday's contest, but Jameel McClain could also take over the role while Beason's out.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 16, 2014
News: Beason aggravated a foot injury in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: It was originally reported that Beason suffered a toe injury in Sunday's game, but the Giants clarified his status Tuesday by announcing that he is dealing with a setback of a previous injury. Further details about Beason's status were unavailable, and he may still need to visit a foot specialist, so consider him questionable for Week 3 at this point.(RotoWire, )
