According to a report from NFL Insider Mike Garafolo, the New York Giants received some bad news on Wednesday. Starting left tackle Will Beatty tore his pectoral muscle during the team's offseason workout program.

Beatty is expected to undergo surgery and miss up to five or six months. That time-frame would seem to put a potential Beatty return in late October or November.

The first meeting between the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants this upcoming season is scheduled to take place on Monday, October 19. It remains to be seen if he'll be ready to return by then. If the recovery goes well, Beatty should definitely be back in time when the two teams play again in the Week 17 regular season finale.

With Beatty out, the Giants will likely rely on Justin Pugh or Ereck Flowers to take his place. New York drafted Flowers with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
