New York Giants LB Jon Beason will not need surgery, doctors determined after he was examined by Dr. Robert Anderson on Monday, June 16. Beason is dealing with a ligament tear and a small fracture in the sesamoid bone in his right foot, and his foot will be immobilized for six weeks, with three of those weeks in a cast.
Huddle Up: At least Beason avoided another appointment with the scalpel, but it's still not a good overall health sign given that the LB has missed a whopping 29 games over the past 3 seasons.

Free-agent LB Jon Beason is a player the New York Giants want to bring back, and the team has discussed a long-term deal with him. The franchise-tag salary for linebackers is likely to be $10 million, so they'd have to be confident about their chances of signing Beason long-term if they were to risk paying him that much on a one-year deal.
Huddle Up: Beason, who was second on the squad with 93 total tackles this past season, is in the prime of his career having just turned 29 in January so he's definitely a candidate to get a longer-term deal.
