East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - New York Giants starting middle linebacker Jon Beason has a ligament tear and a small fracture in his right foot, but expects to be ready to play by the start of the regular season.

Beason underwent X-rays, an MRI and a CT scan after he was carted off the field during an OTA workout on Thursday. The tests showed a ligament tear and a small fracture to the sesamoid bone below his big toe.

Beason said a return by the team's Sept. 8 opener at Detroit is within the timeframe of his recovery period.

"I expect to be back," said Beason, who was hurt defending a pass play. "If not, I'll be back as soon as I can."

Beason was acquired from the Carolina Panthers during the 2013 season and had 93 tackles and one interception in 12 games for the Giants.
