Giants offensive linemen slowly healing
The New York Giants are healing up, even if it’s not going quite as fast as the team would like.
The Giants practiced Monday for the first time following their bye last week, and offensive tackle Will Beatty was back on the field for the first time since suffering a broken bone in his foot in the opener.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Beatty did some agility drills on the side where he’ll probably be for a few weeks. He could be cleared for a return to action later this month.
Meanwhile, center Shaun O’Hara figures to be sidelined a little while longer. He’s missed three games with a left foot injury and was sidelined Monday when he had a walking boot on his right foot. Per the report, he has an injured Lisfranc ligament in the right foot and will likely miss Sunday’s game at Seattle. The hope is he is back Nov. 14, but it could take longer than that.
The Giants have done a good job of weathering some key injuries to this point. Help is on the way when the injured players return. If they can hang in there, they will remain in solid position in the NFC and in the division.
