if he recovers in line with the 12 week time table he'll be activated off PUP prior to the end of camp.

3 month recovery means 3 days before game 1...he probably misses game 1 and possibly game 2 at the most...


For everyone thinking the 6 weeks means Sept. 5, I'm pretty sure the 6 weeks is from the surgery, and he ain't had that yet.

at least you would have a player who could man the middle for half a season or so.



Beason is not going to miss half the season...

I'm willing to bet he does. PuP is almost certain, and then after the 6 weeks they have another what, 3 week window to activate him? wuth no camp, I'm willing to bet he doesn't see any action till after the bye.


Got a hold of his charts, doc?
As David Bowie sang....  
Emlen'sGremlins : 6/13/2014 12:22 pm : link
....Oh, oh, oh, oh.....Little China Doll (Girl).

Are we really surprised by this given Beason's extensive injury history? The guy has been made of glass.

Sorry, meant 12 weeks
actually PUP is certain  
WeatherMan : 6/13/2014 12:23 pm : link
for at least the majority of training camp. Regular season, that's TBD based on his recovery.
My brother is podiatrist and he just texted me  
Jimmy Googs : 6/13/2014 12:25 pm : link
that this type of fracture is a tough injury to heal from because of poor blood flow to that bone.

If he has any more good news I will pass it on...




Made of glass?  
Ten Ton Hammer : 6/13/2014 12:26 pm : link
he never missed a game in his career until his catastrophic knee injury in his 5th year.

He missed two seasons because of it. And played 13 games last year.

we'll see. Remember what I said, though.It wouldn't suprise me a bit if he doesn't play till week 12, and then is only active on the roster but sees little playing time.he's not a young guy, has an injury history, and after the 3 months, will then have to get into game shape.I think they handle him the same way they handled Kuhn last year, and he was basically ready to go , had they really wanted, during camp.I see them making other plans and hoping he rounds into shape if they make the playoffs. Otherwise I don't think he does much this year. Just my take on it.hope I'm wrong.
This sucks  
illmatic : 6/13/2014 12:31 pm : link
but it could be worse. The McClain and CB signings are looking even better right about now.
I'm disappointed  
fkap : 6/13/2014 12:33 pm : link
all the various amateur diagnosis' that were listed on yesterday's thread, and sesamoid wasn't one of them. BBI lets me down again.

amateur that I am, I'll put in my prognosis: he's out for all of camp. he's hobbled (if active) the first half the season. he's hobbled a little less the second half the season. Next year, we'll see what shakes out.
Damn it...  
gmen4ever : 6/13/2014 12:33 pm : link
Damn it, Damn it, Damn it! We will recover. Get the surgery and start healing.
I agree, we'll see  
WeatherMan : 6/13/2014 12:34 pm : link
I'm just making the point that if the 12 week recovery timetable is accurate, there's a case to be made for activation off the PUP prior to the start of the regular season - him missing the first 6 weeks is not as of yet a foregone conclusion.
People look at 12 weeks and say "not bad" be back week 1 or 2  
BlueHurricane : 6/13/2014 12:39 pm : link
Forgetting the fact that he will not be able to do anything over those 12 weeks and will be out of football shape all together. Hopefully he is not rushed back.
I fractured that bone.  
idinkido : 6/13/2014 12:39 pm : link
Played tennis on it next day and at times when I stepped hard it felt like lightning going off in my head! Never had surgery. Kept off it for at least 2 months. Worked out in swimming pool. I'm O.K. now but on occasion will feel pain in the area but does not affect my tennis movement. Surgery will probably strengthen area and shorten time to recoup but IMO he will be out at least 2 months.







kuhn is different than beason  
CGiants07 : 6/13/2014 12:40 pm : link
Kuhn was recovering from a torn acl vs a broken bone and ligament tear in foot and at DL Kuhn was a luxury last year with beason he isn't .
I'm not concerned with the shape he will be in

Great White Ghost : 6/13/2014 12:54 pm : link
of it, and everyone said they'll be fine. I had hoped that after last year we wouldn't see any more of this nonsense about how vets don't really need preseason and all, but I guess that's just how it goes.My years of watching football tell me a different story, that guys that miss camp and OTAs more often than not are behind the rest who don't.Otherwise, why have them? The ligament is going to take time.It always suprises me how guys who haven't had serious injuries think that people just heal and there are no lasting effects, that you just pick up where you left off. You listen to veteran players talk about how the cumulative effects of simply playing, let alone serious injuries,take them out of the game after what are relatively brief careers.Granted, I'm a pessimist by nature, I just think him playing and being effective at or near the beginning of the season is a pipe dream.

A lot of them have durability issues (and Henderson has some personal demons):

Tim Dobbins

Nick Barnett
Stewart Bradley

Matt M. : 6/13/2014 1:08 pm : link
There really isn't good news in this, as some are insisting. Based on last year's defensive performance re-signing Beason was a necessity. Now, based on the rest of the off-season moves thus far, having him start 16 games was a bigger necessity. We have no viable fill-in, unless Herzlich suddenly improved leaps and bounds.
No thanks to any of them.  
Jimmy Googs : 6/13/2014 1:13 pm : link
Between our LBs and keeping an extra Safety (or Corner) on the roster, they will cover it.

Beason will be running well enough to take back the job full-time by October...
McClain plus a lot of "Big Nickel"  
PEEJ : 6/13/2014 1:15 pm : link

Angerer is recovering from microfracture surgery and isn't healthy. Might not be himself all season.
If Beason's recovery schedule is correct, I doubt we make any serious move to replace him. Maybe just add a LB body for camp.
My one gripe  
Sy'56 : 6/13/2014 1:17 pm : link
against the Resse regime has been the lack of attention at LB over the years, especially in the draft. The notion that 4-3 LBs aren't that important is one of the worst statements one can make here. This team needs more talent at LB, there is no doubt about it. Very unfortunate here.

Angerer says he's fully healthy, but yeah, I doubt he'll be back to his tackling machine form.

Denzel Perryman next year!!!!!
the guy is always injured  
oipolloi : 6/13/2014 1:23 pm : link
that's why he was available, despite his obvious ability

The Giants made the decision not to resign Tuck because of his injury history and instead signed a guy who is even more injury prone. The grass is not always greener.
I'm not saying there is good news here...but  
Emil : 6/13/2014 1:26 pm : link
It could have been far far worse. An achilles injury would have been devastating. Beason has a broken bone and a ligament tear in his foot. Looking at coming back sometime in September. I'll take it over season ending any day of the week.

Beason was also probably the one person on defense who didn't need the reps in camp given his ability and experience. Not saying he isn't going to be rusty when he comes back, but he is a good veteran player who will come back fine. Just my opinion, but at some point these veteran players just don't need the camp reps as much, they just need to stay/get into game shape.

Underscoring all of this is, and something I think we forget is just how bad our linebacker play was last year until Beason showed up. I think Beason is a very good player, but in 2013 we honestly had nowhere to go but up at MLB last year. 2014 is not 2013, the cupboard is not nearly as bare. In 2013, the Giants options (prior to the Beason trade) were Dan Connor who was strictly a 2 down player, and Herzlich. Beason and McClain are head and shoulders above these guys.

I love the Herzlich story, but he will never be a preferred option as a starting MLB. Nice special teams player, but if he is our starting MLB we are in trouble. I really hope he proves me wrong. With that in mind, McClain is a significant upgrade at MLB from Herzlich and while his last few years in Baltimore were nothing to get excited about he did battle injuries last year, has a lot to prove, is high energy, and decisive on the field. He, Beason, and Rolle are really going to be the leaders out there. Do the Giants take a hit by losing Beason until probably mid-September, sure, but McClain adequately fills the hole especially on a temporary basis.

Hard to call it all good news, but be patient, it will get better, and maybe Kennard gets some good reps out of this and we perhaps got a steal there.
12 weeks?  
M.S. : 6/13/2014 1:59 pm : link
Yeah right.

Will he even play this season?
The armchair doctors here..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 6/13/2014 2:27 pm : link
are amusing.

Look, the reason surgery hasn't been done is because Beason is consulting with Dr. Anderson down here. They are evaluating the options.

12 weeks is the timetable right now, and I'm sure the decision to have surgery will be made in the next couple of days.

Acting like anyone here knows the real situation and what the real timeline is just reeks. We don't know, so stop acting as if he's going to be running full speed at 12 weeks and 1 day or that he's going to be shelved for the season and have to retire.

Heck, even Eric is taking the delay in surgery to mean something nefarious is afoot.

Dan Connor has to be an option,  
Simms11 : 6/13/2014 3:15 pm : link
but even he can't stay on the field. Would he even get through camp?! Not too many other options out there. Looks like McClain or Paysinger with Herz getting a shot, as well. I don't think Kennard is anything more then a back up right now.

I think best case for Beason is game 4. If 12 week timetable is correct. I think Prince and Nicks both had same injury. He'll be back and chomping at the bit to get in.

Looking at the silverlining, this will help build our depth at a critical position. Kennard will get plenty of snaps now too.
Incase anyone is wondering

I haven't seen anyone in this thread claim to know anything, one way or the other. I don't. I have no problem with guys speculating he will be ready to play in 3 months. I really don't, I myself don't think he will, and others don't, but it's all just opinion. Noone here represented themselves as if they had some inside info or were speaking with some authority.

If people speculating and offering their opinions on a forum that does just that, in the offseason, where the guy considered the lynchpin of their defense goes out for months, gives you a problem, it makes me wonder why you read if it upsets you that much. I mean in no way to be disrespectful, but seriously, you taking extreme umbrage is more inappropriate that people offering their opinions and best guesses. I don't think anyone here represented what they posted as anything more than that.

i just hope jon is OK, waiting for 3 years 2 get in the kinda shape he was in. he got out clean and really busted his tail to put some demons to rest. just as big a hurdle as the injury is the depression of losing that tremendous condition

back to clunking his way thru a football season knowing hes better than that
