The Giants open on the road against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 8.
Beason suffered a ligament tear and small fracture to the sesamoid in his right foot during organized team activities in June and was expected to miss the entire preseason.
The Carolina Panthers traded Beason to New York last October for a 2014 late-round draft pick. After losing the first six games of the season, the Giants went 7-3 and Beason, a three-time Pro Bowler, finished the season with 104 total tackles and one interception.
