York High grad Beatty won't play for Giants this season
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- 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 Tom Coughlin says Beatty, a York High graduate, 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 Ereck Flowers has replaced Beatty at left tackle and played well.
Coughlin also said that left guard Justin Pugh did not sustain a concussion Sunday. His headaches were from dehydration.
