Rotator cuff injury keeps Giants tackle Will Beatty on physically unable to perform list


EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey — New York Giants tackle Will Beatty is going to remain on the physically unable to perform list for the rest of the season.

Giants coach says Beatty was diagnosed with a rotator cuff injury during his rehabilitation from a pectoral tear and will need surgery.

Beatty has been the starting left tackle for the most part since 2011. He tore a pectoral muscle in the offseason lifting weights and was placed on PUP to start the season.

The Giants had until Thursday to make a decision on activating Beatty.

First-round draft pick has replaced Beatty at left tackle and played well.

Coughlin also said that left guard did not sustain a concussion Sunday. His headaches were from dehydration.
