Jon Beason Injury: New York Giants linebacker carted off during practice

The Chip Kelly voodoo list strikes again?

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

According to multiple reports, New York Giants middle linebacker and defensive captain Jon Beason was carted off the field during the team's OTA practice on Thursday.

Conor Orr of NJ.com, who was present at the team's practice, has more:

The training staff appeared to be looking at his knee or lower leg, but Beason was able to walk off the field under his own power.

Beason was not stretched out on the back of the medical cart like with most serious injuries, but instead rode in the passenger side. Beason has dealt with lingering knee issues throughout his career, including a season-ending trip to the IR in 2012. He had microfracture surgery on his right knee and had been reportedly playing through pain last year before being traded to the Giants.

The issue was serious enough that safety Stevie Brown immediately called for the training staff.

While the full extent of Beason's injury isn't known yet, seeing a player carted off is never a good sign.

In a bit of a weird coincidence, the Eagles have already had a number of 2014 opponents lose key players due to injury or suspension.

Is Beason the next player to fall victim? Stay tuned for more updates.
