Jon Beason will undergo knee surgery, season likely over

Carolina Panthers linebacker Jon Beason told News 14 Carolina that he’ll be undergoing knee surgery, which will likely land him on season ending injured reserve.

“I’ve been pretty banged up, it’s been week to week,” Beason said. “And we decided to take another look at the knee, see what’s going on. [I] got the MRI yesterday and it didn’t look good so I’m probably going to have to have surgery and if I do that I’m going to end up on the IR. So that’s probably what we’re going to do, moving forward, probably early next week. But, it’s part of the business man. You can’t control injuries.”

Beason missed most of last season with an Achilles injury.  These past couple of years have not been good for Beason.
