Jon Beason will not require surgery, might return for season opener

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants are hoping linebacker Jon Beason will be back on the field when the games begin to count in September.

New York Giants linebacker Jon Beason broke his foot during OTAs but will not need surgery to repair it, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.

Beason will opt to have the foot immobilized for six weeks before undergoing rehab. Should everything go to plan, Beason will be able to start rehab at the beginning of August. If Beason's foot responds well, it is possible he can see action in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football, per Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Last year was Beason's first with the Giants after spending six seasons with the Carolina Panthers. Beason made only 32 tackles in 2011 and 2012 combined, dealing with an Achilles tendon injury.  The Panthers traded Beason to New York three games into the 2013 season, where Beason rebounded and finished the year with 93 tackles, his best mark since 2010.

New York signed Beason to a three-year contract this offseason worth $16.8 million.
