Beason said last month that he expected to play in the season opener.
The linebacker suffered a ligament tear and small fracture to the sesamoid in his right foot during organized team activities in June and missed the entire preseason.
Beason, a three-time Pro Bowler, finished last season with 104 total tackles and one interception. He was traded in October to the Giants from the Carolina Panthers.
