You think the news of a torn ACL is going to bring down NY Giants linebacker Darrian Beavers? Not a chance. While the update of Beavers being lost for the season is of course brutal, that doesn’t mean that the sixth-round pick is going to lose focus on the fact that he’s still got a bright future with this team.
Beavers made plenty of noise this summer and he looked ready to make an impact for Wink Martdinale’s defense this year. While things will be delayed until the 2023 campaign because of his serious knee injury, Beavers is staying positive right now. He made that much clear with his latest Instagram post.
NY Giants LB Darrian Beavers is staying positive despite being lost for the season
"“Smile and let everyone know that today, you’re a lot stronger than you were yesterday,” Beavers wrote on Instagram."
Obviously Beavers is a bit bummed that his rookie campaign is over before it could really even get started, but again, he’s staying positive and he also understands that he’s still got plenty of good football ahead of him. At the end of the day, he’s still incredibly young and can work his way back to his best level.
On his Instagram post, the comments section has been flooded with messages of support from teammates and other players across the league. That’s great to see, as fellow Big Blue players know that Beavers needs all the support he can get right now. With that, though, this is just some adversity that has been presented for Beavers and he’ll be ready to overcome things.
Beavers’ injury is just one of many that the G-Men have had to deal with. Kayvon Thibodeaux, the No. 5 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, was diagnosed with a sprained MCL and his status for Week 1 of the campaign is totally up in the air. There’s a chance he’s back in action, but the Giants could also decide to take things slow with Thibodeaux and not rush him back.
We’ll find out soon enough what happens with Thibodeaux, but we do know that Beavers won’t be in action. Despite that, he’ll certainly be ready to support his teammates in anyway he can from start to finish in 2022.
