1authorrob3 - Jon Beason Becomes Latest New York Giants Player To Suffer InjuryThis injury thing with Tom Coughlin’s New York Giants football squad is becoming so bad that many are starting to wonder if more mysterious entities are at play here.

They just cannot stay healthy.

Jon Beason, middle linebacker and leader of the Giants defense, is the latest to surrender to the dreaded injury bug. He was forced to leave Friday night’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a sprained left knee.

It is still unclear how serious the sprain is, but losing the arguable heart and soul of the unit doesn’t provide a fine taste, via ESPN:

“Everyone here knows Jon is an essential part of our defense,” fellow linebackerJ.T. Thomas said. “He’s our leader. He’s the guy we look up to. Of course it affects our leadership and our style of play.”

Staying on the field has been a major question mark for the 30-year old Beason. He played in just four games a season ago.
