Will Beatty Injury Update: Beatty To Have Surgery For Detached Retina

The New York Giants’ struggling offensive line received a devastating blow this afternoon when the team announced that starting left tackle Will Beatty will undergo surgery on Thursday morning to repair a detached retina in his right eye. he procedure will be performed by Donald J. D’Amico, MD, Professor and Chairman of Ophthalmology at Weill Cornell Medical College and Ophthalmologist-in-Chief at the New York Presbyterian Hospital.

A timeframe for Beatty’s recovery has not been established.

The Giants offensive line has struggled all season, and head coach Tom Coughlin was critical of the team’s blocking following Sunday’s 17-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

After the game Coughlin said the “offensive line was completely outplayed by the front eight of Philadelphia.”

Correcting that issue won’t be easier with Beatty out of the lineup. The third-year player from UConn took over this season as the starting left tackle, and has been the team’s most consistent lineman.
