- As Mike Garafolo mentioned earlier, Beatty will likely miss 5-6 months following the procedure.
Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that Giants LT Will Beatty suffered what is believed to be a pectoral injury while lifting weights.
According to Garafolo, the extent of Beatty’s injury is unclear at this point in time. Beatty is being evaluated this afternoon in Manhattan.
However, in the event surgery is required, Garafolo mentions that the expectation right now is he would be out 5-6 months.
The Giants came away from the draft with first-round OT Ereck Flowers and have former first-round selection Justin Pugh available as well, so they could fill in for Beatty if he ends up missing time.
Beatty, 30, still has another three years remaining on his five-year, $37.5 million contract that included $19 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $5.5 million (2015), $6.625 million (2016) and $6.775 million (2017) over the next three years.
