Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. He's fully expected to play after getting out of last week's game without a setback. Barkley carried just 6 times in that loss to the Bucs but caught all 6 of his targets. His role should grow in his 2nd game back from the ankle injury.

The Giants fired OC Jason Garrett. His squad ranked 31st in both total yards and points in 2020. This year's Giants currently sit 23rd in yards and 25th in points. Garrett was strapped with an uneven QB, a bad offensive line and lots of skill-position injuries -- but his offense never showed the slightest hint of creativity. Freddie Kitchens is expected to take over as interim OC, according to The New York Post's Ryan Dunleavy. Kitchens struggled as Browns HC in 2019 but did spark the offense after taking over as OC midway through the 2018 campaign. We don't expect a big rebound from the Giants the rest of the way, but Kitchens can only be an upgrade over Garrett.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Bucs. He was limited in practice all week, and it's unclear how big a role he's ready for in his first action since Week 5. But if you were waiting on Barkley, get him into fantasy lineups. RB Devontae Booker (hip) is also active for the G-Men.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is expected to play Monday night against the Bucs, barring a setback. Barkley is officially questionable, so we'll confirm his status when inactives come out Monday evening. But it sounds like you'll be in luck if you've been waiting for Barkley in your Week 11 fantasy football lineup.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Bucs. He was limited in all 3 practices this week. All signs point to Barkley returning for this one, but it's evidently not a lock. RB Devontae Booker (hip) is also listed as questionable.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) remained limited in Friday's practice. He's trending toward a return on Monday night vs. the Bucs, but we'll get another update on Barkley tomorrow.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) got in a limited practice on Thursday. The New York media expects him to return for Monday night's game vs. the Bucs, but we'll continue to keep an eye on his progress over the next couple of days.

The New York Daily News' Pat Leonard believes Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is "trending toward" a return vs. the Bucs next Monday night. Barkley was out on the field Monday for the team's post-bye-week practice. He'll be 5 weeks removed from the ankle injury come next Monday. We'll track his practice participation this week.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. He’ll get a Week 10 bye and hopefully be ready to go come Week 11. Devontae Booker gets another start this weekend and is a solid RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley returned to the team on Friday morning after it was deemed that his initial COVID test was a false positive, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. So we can put that concern to bed. But Barkley's Week 9 status remains uncertain due to his ankle injury. We'll have a better idea of his status this afternoon.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley remains on the COVID list and did not practice on Thursday. His first 2 rapid COVID tests came back positive, but a PCR test later came back negative. Barkley is scheduled for re-tests later today and tomorrow. It seems like there's a good chance he's off the COVID list in time for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders, but it remains uncertain if his injured ankle will let him play. Missing Wednesday and Thursday's practices certainly doesn't help.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Giants RB Saquon Barkley tested negative for COVID on Wednesday's re-check. According to Schefter, 13 members of the team who tested positive Tuesday were re-tested, and RBs coach Burton Burns came back as the only positive. That would seem to indicate Barkley is back on track to play. We'll see whether he requires a 2nd negative test to officially be cleared or whether there are any further developments to this situation. Of course, we'll also need to watch to make sure Barkley's sprained ankle is ready for action against the Raiders this Sunday.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley has tested positive for COVID, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Barkley has been vaccinated, so he could still play Sunday against the Raiders if he remains symptom-free and tests negative twice before then. If he passes there, Barkley seems to be on track to return from his ankle sprain. If Barkley's out again, Devontae Booker would retain the starting gig.

The Giants have officially ruled RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) out for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. That comes as no surprise, with Barkley yet to return to practice. It locks in Devontae Booker as a solid RB2 for PPR lineups.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) missed practice again on Friday. He's not going to play vs. the Chiefs of Monday night, giving RB Devontae Booker another start.

Giants HC Joe Judge said Thursday that RB Saquon Barkley (ankle), WR Kenny Golladay (knee) and WR Kadarius Toney (ankle) are making "good progress." All 3 guys missed Thursday's practice, but Judge expects all 3 to return in some capacity on Friday. That at least gives them a chance to play vs. the Chiefs on Monday night, but fantasy owners still can't be counting on them at this point.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle), WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring), WR Kenny Golladay (knee) and WR Kadarius Toney (ankle) were working with trainers off to the side of Wednesday's practice, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. The Giants play the Chiefs on Monday night, so we'll get the team's first official practice report tomorrow. "Will say this after speaking with sources the past few days about the Giants playmakers: They're in a race against time. It is going to be close on a bunch of them. Probably one or two make it," Raanan tweeted.
