EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Giants left tackle Will Beatty underwent successful surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle last evening at Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.
Beatty suffered the injury during weight training on Tuesday. His expected recovery time is five to six months.
Beatty, the Giants' second-round draft choice in 2009, is entering his seventh season with the team. He has played in 82 regular-season games with 63 starts – one start as an extra lineman/tight end/eligible receiver in 2012; 42 at left tackle in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014; and four at right tackle in 2009.
In 2014, Beatty played in every game for the third consecutive season and started all 16 games for the second year in a row. His streak of 46 consecutive starts is the second-longest on the team among current players, trailing only Eli Manning's 167 starts in a row.
Beatty has missed time in the past with a fractured foot (2010) and a detached retina (2011). He did not play in the 2012 preseason because of a back injury. Beatty suffered a fractured fibula in the 2013 season finale vs. Washington, but returned to start every game last season.
