Cornerback Sam Beal is ready to finally go out onto the game field and prove to New York Giants fans what he can bring to the table.
Remember Sam Beal? The New York Giants selected him in the third round of the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft. He was a promising cornerback out of Western Michigan University who was looking to climb the depth chart. However, that has yet to happen.
Beal suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in July of 2018. After recovering and returning for training camp in 2019, the young defensive back suffered a hamstring setback. The Giants placed him on injured reserve, which makes it possible for him to return for their upcoming Week 9 matchup against the Cowboys. Beal just may see the field for the first time in his NFL career on Monday, something he’s more than excited about.
“I have so much aggression,” Beal said on Thursday, per Dan Salomone of the Giants’ official website “that’s the perfect team.”
It’s not exactly clear if the Giants will activate Beal for the matchup, or the following week, or even the one after that. Regardless, the 23-year-old is ready for whenever the time comes.
“They know I want to be out there,” he said. “I’m not even thinking about it because I know it’s coming, I am just waiting for my moment, I’m waiting for that text or call, just ready for that moment.”
The third-place Giants will kick off against the division-leading Cowboys on Monday night at 8:15 p.m. ET at MetLife Stadium.
