New York Giants left tackle William Beatty was placed on Injured Reserve (IR) last season after suffering a detached retina that required surgery, which was performed by Donald J. D'Amico, MD, Professor and Chairman of Ophthalmology at Weill Cornell Medical College & Ophthalmologist-in-Chief at the New York Presbyterian Hospital. On Monday afternoon, Beatty revealed via his Twitter account that his eye had healed and he's ready to return to football in 2012.
"My eye is 100% only difference is ill now have a shield to protect from getting hit in the eye on game days," he tweeted.
Beatty also referred to himself as the starting left tackle, meaning, as anticipated, David Diehl will once again be on the move. Whether or not that's a move back to left guard or a move to right tackle is still anyone's guess. He's already gone on record saying he'll play wherever the team needs him to, so the decision is, obviously, in their hands.
A second round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, Beatty showed some significant improvement prior to his injury last year. He has one year remaining on his contract and is scheduled to earn $615,000 in 2012.
