This move is not surprising in the least as I hinted that this could be the case after Gamble was shut down the other day. This will be the second straight year Beason will be placed on season ending IR. the once dominant linebacker cannot stay on the field and has been a shell of his former self when healthy enough to play. He is likely headed for surgery to clean up his knee and will have plenty of time to recover. Hopefully some more time off will resurrect his career. The good news is that Luke Kuechly will continue to get starts at MLB. Kuechly has been outstanding and the first round rookie should be cemented at the position for years to come.
