Buffalo Bills’ Public Enemy In Week 2: Carolina Panthers’ Jon Beason
Carolina Panthers 28-year-old veteran linebacker Jon Beason until the last two injury-plagued seasons has been a force to say the least on this defense. He has been a tackling machine racking up no less than 119 tackles in his first four seasons. The Panthers have an extremely solid linebacker corps, including last year’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in Luke Kuechly, and there is also Thomas Davis who is lurking around, stalking opposing teams’ offenses.
Beason, while he isn’t the biggest dog in the fight at 6-foot and 230 pounds, has had to put up with some serious issues as of late. With the serious injuries the last few seasons, it could really hamper his playing abilities. But he does have less responsibility now that Kuechly has taken over in middle, allowing Beason to move back to his more natural position of OLB.
While head-to-head he might punish a running back or two, the good news for fans of the Buffalo Bills and despite he has had nine interceptions in his career, that was when he was roaming the middle of the field. It is extremely unlikely that he will be able to keep up with the one-two punch at running back of C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson as they are dangerous out of the backfield catching the ball as well as just pounding the rock play after play.
All in all, it’ll be interesting to see how Beason plays as he has been bothered by an unknown knee injury that has kept him out of practice at least once this past week.
