    GIANTS' TRAVIS BECKUM: "GOOD CHANCE I'LL BE BACK BY START OF SEASON"

    GIANTS' TRAVIS BECKUM: "GOOD CHANCE I'LL BE BACK BY START OF SEASON"

    "After shredding his ACL in Super Bowl XLVI, it seemed like a near certainty
    that, at best, New York
    Giants tight end Travis
    Beckum
    would start the 2012-2013 season on the Physically Unable to Perform
    (PUP) list. A more realistic view of the 12-18 month recovery period would mean
    Beckum would almost certainly miss the entire year. However, the fourth-year
    player out of Wisconsin had a much more optimistic outlook on Wednesday
    morning.

    "Just seen the Doc..best news I heard in awhile!!!" Beckum tweeted. "Very good chance I will be back by the start
    of the season!!"




    In some of the best cases, the recovery period for an ACL injury is six
    months. If Beckum falls into that category, then he may very well be able to
    return in late August or early September. However, a recovery time of only six
    months following an ACL tear is quite rare. In most cases, recovery takes
    somewhere between 9-12 months, with some more extreme cases taking upwards of 18
    months to return to 100%.




    Despite Beckum's current expectations, chances are the Giants will move
    forward as if he and Jake
    Ballard
    will be unavailable to start the season. They'll work to get newly
    signed tight end Martellus Bennett acclimated to their offensive system,
    and may still add another tight end; either through the NFL Draft or via
    free agency."

    Feel bad for him and Ballard but I think there is now way they are playing this season.
