Jon Beason resumes training after bout of food poisoning

Giants linebacker Jon Beason says his toe injury is recovering just fine. But he admitted Wednesday that his overall health took a hit last week.

During a Duracell event, the linebacker said he got only limited rehab done last week, due to a serious bout with food poisoning.

"I was sick last week," Beason told the News. "I got a little food poisoning. I was under the weather. I couldn't train. I was feverish."

Beason said he is feeling much better now, and he looked it during the Duracell event at MetLife Stadium, where he helped the company showcase the power of its batteries. An amazing 650 batteries help power every NFL game on Sundays and Beason noted that he has one in his helmet.

He expects to don that helmet soon, too, and said he will be coming off the physically-unable-to-perform list soon. He said it will take time for him to "transition" into "elite" shape but he is still on pace to play against the Lions in the season opener.

"I'm looking to come off PUP in the next couple days," he said. "I'm doing everything to make sure my conditioning is up to par.

"I feel good. I feel confident that I will be able to go out and contribute on Sept. 8."
