Ever since Jon Beason left Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys due to re-aggravating the same toe injury he initially suffered back in June and again in September, his status for the remainder of the 2014 season was in tremendous doubt.
On Tuesday, Beason spoke with Mike Francesa of WFAN and FOX Sports 1 and said he's strongly considering shutting himself down for the rest of the 2014 season and having the surgery on the toe that he put off back in June.
"Right now, I'm 50-50. I'm not playing with a ligament in my toe, so at this point, I may just shut it down and get the surgery and come back strong for next season."
Losing Beason for the rest of the season would be a tremendous blow to a defense that thrived last year upon his arrival after being acquired last October from the Carolina Panthers for a seventh-roun draft pick. Thus far, Beason's 2014 season has been spent dealing with the same foot injury that started back in the summer; which was a ligament tear and a small fracture to the sesamoid in the right foot.Read more...
