New York Giants linebacker Jon Beason's foot injury is a re-aggravation of his earlier injury.
Beason left Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals in the second half after injuring his foot, which the team first said was a toe injury. The linebacker missed all of training camp after he tore a ligament and fractured the sesamoid bone in his foot in a June OTA. Beason returned to start both of the team's first games.
The Giants said Beason may see specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte but didn't give a timetable for his recovery. According to the New York Daily News, the Giants' announcement means Beason shouldn't miss the rest of the season as feared, but that he is likely out for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.
Beason, acquired from the Carolina Panthers in a trade last October, had 93 tackles in 12 games with New York last season and has eight tackles so far this season. The Giants promoted linebacker Dan Fox from the practice squad to help replace Beason.
