Jon Beason (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Since joining the New York Giants in 2013, the oft-injured linebacker has played in just 19 games with the team, and he's played in 10+ games just twice in his seven year career. Considering Beason is entering the final year of his contract, the Giants could save nearly $5 million in cap space next year if they cut the 30-year-old linebacker by the beginning of March, so his presence on the roster in 2016 is far from a guarantee.
Jon Beason (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay.
After failing to practice all week, Beason will miss a second straight game. In his absence, Jasper Brinkley will split snaps with Uani Unga at middle linebacker.
Jon Beason (ankle) did not practice Thursday.
Beason missed last week's contest against the Saints due to an ankle injury and after missing practice in consecutive days, the 30-year-old linebacker could be in danger of missing this week's contest against the Buccaneers as well. That decision likely won't arrive until Friday, so IDP owners looking to play Beason should check back in then.
Jon Beason (ankle) is inactive Sunday against the Saints.
Beason played a season-high 60 snaps in Week 7 but was unable to practice this week due to the ankle injury. Uani Unga, who did not play last weekend due to a neck injury, will slot back into Beason's spot after practicing fully Thursday and Friday.
Jon Beason (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in New Orleans.
Beason has spent most of the season sharing snaps with Uani Unga (neck), who is listed as probable after missing Week 7. Unga will be a strong IDP option if Beason can't play, but Beason is unlikely to have any value of his own this week.
