Jon Beason still on course to play vs. Lions

Everything appears to be on track for Jon Beason's return to action on Monday night, just in time for the opener against the Lions in Detroit.

Beason (toe), who was just activated off the physically-unable-to-perform list earlier this week, was on the field during the portion of practice open to the media on Thursday, and he once again did not seem limited in any way. Giants coach Tom Coughlin also said before practice that Beason remains on course to be in action on Monday night.

That's critical for a Giants team that needs its defensive leader. Beason's return allows Jameel McClain to shift back to outside linebacker, deepening the Giants' well of linebacking options.
