"I feel like I'm really close, but I have to go out and do it and I want to test it," he said. "That's going to confirm it for me. Obviously, we play a lot of games on turf. Turf is more rigid than grass, and we practice on grass, so it's going to feel really good on grass."
Beason suffered a ligament tear and a small fracture to the sesamoid in his right foot on June 12. One key to his recovery is his footwear; he's wearing customized orthotics and a size 13 cleat, one-half size larger than his normal size.
"It's coming along," Beason told ESPN.com. "We still have time. I'm just trying to listen to the staff, who I trust, and trying to listen to my body. But we are playing on Monday night [in the season opener] and it's still a little over three weeks before the game, so a lot can happen between now and then."
If Beason isn't ready, Jameel McClain likely would get the start.
