That last link doesn’t include Jon Beason in the title, but it does share this tidbit on the Giants’ much need linebacker:
In some procedural roster moves, linebacker Jon Beason is being taken off the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. Coughlin said he was expected to practice on Monday and for that to happen he needed to be have the PUP designation removed. The Giants will also put offensive lineman Eric Herman and cornerback Jayron Hosley on the reserve/suspended list. Both are serving four game sentences, Herman for violating the performance-enhancing drug policy and Hosley for violating the substance-abuse policy.
Basically, Jon Beason isn’t 100% healthy yet, but he’s been cleared, as he has to practice on Monday to have the PUP tag taken away. Now understand, Jon Beason himself has come out and said that he might even be ready to play against the Lions on Monday Night Football. So this isn’t a move just for the sake of making a move out of hope… Jon Beason has a legitimate chance to play.After a recent bout with food poisoning, Jon Beason spoke with NYDailyNews.com in a piece they titled, NY Giants’ Jon Beason tackles food poisoning.
Apparently, Jon was recovering well from his case of food poisoning (an awful ailment) and had this to say about his upcoming return:
“I’m looking to come off PUP in the next couple days,” Beason said. “I’m doing everything to make sure my conditioning is up to par.
“I feel good. I feel confident that I will be able to go out and contribute on Sept. 8.”
Well Giants Nation, one down, one to go. What do you think, will Jon Beason start on MNF against the Detroit Lions on Sept 8th, or will the Giants have to make other arrangements?
