News: The Giants are still holding out hope Beason's foot injury is nothing serious and that he can return to the field not only this season, but maybe 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, )

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, )

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, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: Beason suffered a toe injury during Sunday's game and is questionable to return, the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Beason recorded four tackles (three solo) prior to exiting Sunday's game. Although he's listed as questionable moving forward, it's worth noting that Beason missed the entire preseason with a ligament tear in his foot.(RotoWire, )

News: Beason (foot) is active for Sunday's contest against the Cardinals, Pat Hanlon of the Giants' official site reports. Impact: Unless the Giants increase Beason's usage rate (64 percent of defensive snaps in Week 1), his IDP potential won't reach the relevance of even mid-tier linebackers throughout the league. He's coming off a four-tackle performance Monday in Detroit.(RotoWire, )

News: Beason (foot) is probable for Sunday's game against Arizona. Impact: Beason logged just two limited practices this week (Wednesday and Friday), but the Giants are evidently limiting his activity in a planned fashion to keep him fresh for Sundays. He only played 64 percent of the Giants' snaps in Week 1, though, so he's not an ideal IDP option unless he stays on the field more consistently.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Beason (foot) missed practice Thursday, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. Impact: Coach Tom Coughlin expects Beason to play, but he could share snaps again with Jameel McClain as Beason apparently still has soreness in his broken foot.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 8, 2014
News: Beason (foot) is active for Monday's game against the Lions, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. Impact: Graziano adds that Beason is slated to start at middle linebacker Monday, though it's possible that he may see limited snaps in the contest.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 8, 2014
News: Beason (foot) expects to start Monday night's game against the Lions, The Record reports. Impact: Beason is listed as probable ahead of Monday's game, but it appears the linebacker will be good to go after missing the entire preseason with a ligament tear in his foot. While he expects to start, it wouldn't be surprising if his involvement is closely monitored to ensure he remains healthy for the long haul. As such, both Jameel McClain and Devon Kennard should see significant playing time on Monday night.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Sep 6, 2014
News: Beason (foot) is probable for Monday's season opener against the Lions, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Beason was limited in practice this week, but looks like he'll be able to suit up against Detroit on Monday. He'll likely fill a backup linebacker role, and it's unclear how much of an impact he'll have while he's still recovering.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 4, 2014
News: Beason (foot) was listed on the Giants' injury report as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. Impact: Beason was activated from the Giants' PUP list last Saturday after missing the preseason with a ligament tear in his foot. Now expected to be fully healthy in the near future, Beason has resumed practicing and will continue to do so leading up to Monday night's regular season opener. The veteran is expected to suit up against the Lions, although his participation level will probably be determined closer to kickoff. As of now, Jameel McClain is slated to start at middle linebacker, with promising rookie Devon Kennard at the Giants' weakside position.(RotoWire, )
