Jon Beason to See Foot Specialist

Giants middle linebacker and defensive leader Jon Beason plans to visit a foot specialist in Charlotte, N.C., to evaluate the injury he aggravated in last Sunday's game.

Beason said Thursday that he stepped on teammate Jameel McClain's foot during the loss to Arizona and felt a pop. It was the same foot the linebacker injured during a practice in June, when he sustained a fracture and torn ligaments. He said Thursday that he doesn't think he did any new damage, but rather moved scar tissue from the existing injury.

The good news Thursday was that Beason had ditched the walking boot he'd been wearing and said he felt much better. "And when I say a whole lot, that is good," he said after missing his second straight day of practice.

Beason is preparing to play Sunday, but coach Tom Coughlin said he was unsure whether he would play.
