Giants LB Jon Beason mentioned in an interview with WFAN’s Mike Francesa that undergoing season-ending surgery on his injured foot could be in his best interest long-term.
As of now, Beason said there is a 50-50 chance of him returning this year.
“I’m still deciding if the smart thing is to go ahead and get it fixed and get ready for next season,” Beason said, via NJ.com.
Beason re-injured his foot during last weekend’s game against the New York Giants, but he is still holding out hope he can be back in time for their Week 9 match up against the Colts.
“I talked to Dr. Anderson [Tuesday] and he wants to continue to look at the MRI and the CT scan and see what the options are,” Beason said. “He wants to do what’s best for me, obviously, but at the same time he knows that, hey, I want to play, and if I can play, I want to do whatever I can to make sure I can line up on the field against the Colts next week.”
Beason, 29, signed a three-year, $16.8 million contract that included $6.03 million guaranteed with the Giants during the offseason. However, he has been limited to appearing in just four games and has recorded 11 tackles on the season.
We’ll have more updates regarding Beason as the news is avaialble.
