The New York Giants lost another football game Sunday, stumbling and bumbling their way to a 25-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals at MetLife Stadium. The Giants may have also lost middle linebacker Jon Beason to another foot injury.

Beason suffered a broken sesamoid bone in his foot during OTAs. He missed all of the offseason and preseason work, returning to play in the Giants' season-opening game on Monday night against the Detroit Lions.

With rookie Devon Kennard (hamstring) also sidelined, the Giants turned to Mark Herzlich at middle linebacker after Beason's injury.

The Giants signed the oft-injured Beason to a three-year contract this offseason despite his lengthy injury history. Beason played only five games in 2011 and 2012 due to knee, shoulder and achilles injuries.

Slot cornerback Walter Thurmond III left the game with an apparent pectoral injury. Coughlin had no word on the severity of that injury.
