Left tackle Will Beatty, who fractured his right leg in the regular-season finale last year, is ready to return to game action. Beatty, who has returned to practice with the first team offense, will play in Saturday night's preseason game against the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium, according to Giants coach Tom Coughlin.
However, Beatty's snaps might be limited. "It will be his first time playing, so he will get the normal first-time load," Coughlin said.
