Giants linebacker Jon Beason injured his right foot during a June organized team activity practice, suffering a ligament tear and a small fracture to the sesamoid bone.
He did not need surgery. He has been resting and, more recently, vigorously rehabbing, pushing off and cutting on the foot, and now he is feels he could play against Detroit.
“I feel like I’m really close, but I have to go out and do it,’’ Beason said Monday. “I want to test it, that’s gonna kinda confirm it for me.’’
That is great news for Giants fans.
