Giants' Sam Beal: Productive when healthy in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal (shoulder) recorded 26 tackles (20 solo) and one defended pass across six contests in 2019.

After missing his entire rookie season due to a shoulder injury, Beal managed to retake the field Week 10 of the 2019 campaign and ramp up to a starting workload for Weeks 14-16. He was forced to miss the Giants' regular-season finale due a shoulder injury of undisclosed severity, but there's not yet any reason to worry about his availability for OTAs.

Giants' Sam Beal: Officially inactive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal (shoulder) is officially inactive for Sunday's matchup with Philadelphia, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Beal was one of the many players that came out of Week 16's overtime win injured, but he is one of the only players not ready to play in the season's final game. With the second-year pro sidelined, look for Grant Haley to see an increase in depth corner snaps.

Giants' Sam Beal: Questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Beal is nursing a shoulder injury sustained during Week 16's win over Washington. With Corey Ballentine (back) also listed as questionable, it would be a notable blow to New York's secondary depth if Beal were forced to miss Sunday's season finale.

Giants' Sam Beal: Dealing with neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal was forced out of Sunday's game against the Redskins with a neck injury, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Beal has started the last two weeks with Janoris Jenkins out of the lineup (and now in New Orleans), generating 18 tackles and a pass breakup between the games. If the second-year pro out of Western Michigan doesn't return to the lineup, Grant Haley and Antonio Hamilton are due for upticks in usage.

Giants' Sam Beal: Huge tackling day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal notched 11 tackles (eight solo) and one defended pass during Sunday's 36-20 win over the Dolphins.

Beal played 71 snaps (100 percent) on defense during the Week 15 win, drawing the start at cornerback in place of Janoris Jenkins, who the Giants recently waived. The 2018 third-round pick stands to continue playing a key role in New York's secondary down the stretch, and his propensity for tackles could make him a notable fantasy asset in IDP formats.

Giants' Sam Beal: Pegged to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal is expected to start at cornerback in place of Janoris Jenkins against the Dolphins on Sunday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Jenkins was waived Friday, so Beal will have a chance to step up. The second-year pro played nearly every snap in Week 14's loss to the Eagles, recording seven tackles (six solo). Over four games this season, Beal has yielded 7.3 yards per target and a touchdown.

Giants' Sam Beal: Likely to return Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants are unlikely to activate Beal (hamstring) from injured reserve before Monday's game against the Cowboys, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

New York is expected activate Beal from IR ahead of Week 10, but it will have to do so by Wednesday or he'll remain on the shelf the rest of the season. The 2018 third-round pick resumed practicing Oct. 16 after dealing with the hamstring injury throughout the preseason.

Giants' Sam Beal: Slated to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants have designated Beal (hamstring) to return from injured reserve.

Beal will practice this week, and he'll be eligible to return in Week 9 against the Cowboys. The second-year pro hasn't played in an NFL game yet since he battled a shoulder injury last year and this hamstring issue to start the 2019 season. The Giants are hoping he can make an immediate impact since their secondary is allowing 9.3 yards per passing attempt -- second-worst in the league.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

Giants' Sam Beal: Progressing from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal (hamstring) participated in individual drills during Sunday's practice, Ryan Dunleavy of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The 22-year-old has been dealing with a lingering hamstring injury for all of training camp and has yet to play in the preseason. The fact that Beal was able to return to practice is a positive sign, considering he has been sidelined for all of August. As he continues to get healthy, Beal is expected to earn a depth role in the Giants' secondary once fully healthy.

Beal (hamstring) is expected to remain sidelined for Friday's preseason game against the Bears, Ryan Dunleavy of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Giants' Sam Beal: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal (groin/hamstring) did not practice Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Beal has progressively been increasing his participation in practice, but he has yet to return to full health. Deandre Baker and Grant Haley (shoulder) will continue seeing increased reps in training camp as long as Beal remains sidelined. When fully healthy, the 2018 third-round pick will compete for a starting role in New York's secondary.

Giants' Sam Beal: Ramping up workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal's limited participation is a step in the right direction, and coach Pat Shurmur said Sunday that he expects the 2018 third-round pick to get healthy "soon." The 22-year-old is expected to compete for a starting role in New York's secondary when fully recovered.

Head coach Pat Shurmur said Beal is dealing with a hamstring issue but should be back "soon," Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal opened up OTAs with the starting defense, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Giants' Sam Beal: Gains medical clearence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Pat Shurmur said Monday that Beal has fully recovered from shoulder surgery and will be good to go for offseason workouts, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Beal was forced to miss all of 2018 after he underwent surgery to repair a dislocated shoulder. Because the 22-year-old will head into next season without NFL game experience, he likely will start out as a depth cornerback.

Giants' Sam Beal: Undergoing surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal (shoulder) is undergoing surgery Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Beal, who dislocated his shoulder last week, has plenty of time to return for the start of the 2019 season and could even be ready to get back on the field at some point during next year's training camp.

Giants' Sam Beal: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beal (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Beal will require surgery on his injured right shoulder and does not yet have a timetable for return. The rookie cornerback was no guarantee to even make the Giants' 53-man roster, so his absence should not affect the team in any serious way.
