Giants designate Sam Beal for return – Yardbarker

The Giants announced that they have designated Sam Beal for return. The cornerback may now be weeks away from making his long-awaited NFL debut. The Giants took Beal in the third round of the 2018 Supplemental Draft, but he was forced to redshirt his rookie year after shoulder surgery. There was some talk that Beal could start in 2019, but a hamstring issue cost him most of training camp and the entire preseason and the club was forced to place him on injured reserve in September. Fun fact: Beal was only the third supplemental draft player ever selected by the Giants in franchise history. In July of 2018, he joined quarterback Dave Brown (first round, 1992) and cornerback Tito Wooten (fourth round, 1994) in the record books. The 6-foot-1 cornerback ran a 4.47-second 40-yard-dash leading up the draft and the Giants are itching to see what the athletic defensive back can do in live action.
