Saquon Barkley ready for Week 8

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (elbow) is not listed on the final Week 8 injury report. He hyperextended his elbow last week but returned to that game and will be ready for a full workload vs. the Jets on Sunday.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. He remained limited in practice all week but hasn't been cleared for contact. QB Tyrod Taylor gets the start again this weekend. He's played reasonably well the past two weeks, completing 65% of his passes at 7.4 yards per attempt with two TDs and 0 INTs. Taylor isn't a recommended fantasy play against a tough Jets defense, but he's not a significant downgrade for guys like RB Saquon Barkley and TE Darren Waller.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (elbow) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was able to play through the hyperextended elbow last week and should be fine for Sunday's game vs. the Jets.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley sustained a hyperextended left elbow in Sunday’s win over Washington. Trainers put a sleeve on Barkley’s elbow, and he was able to play through the injury. "I'll be all right," Barkley said after the loss. We’ll keep an eye on his practice participation, but Barkley should be fine for Week 8.

The Giants are “optimistic” and “hopeful” that RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) will play vs. the Bills tonight, ESPN's Adam Schefter tweets. The Giants "want to make sure there are no setbacks," Schefter adds. "But they 'feel good about it', so signs point up." NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has a similar report, saying "it's not 100%" but that there's a "real chance" Barkley returns tonight. It'd be nice to get a sure-fire report, but it continues to sound more likely than not that Barkley plays tonight. He can stay penciled into fantasy lineups, ideally with a late-game alternative also rostered. Matt Breida, Latavius Murray, Damien Harris, and Joshua Kelley qualify.
