Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) will be "eased in" and "used sparingly" in today's opener vs. the Broncos, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweets. "He’ll get snaps, but the team won’t put him at risk so early," Rapoport adds. So it sounds like Barkley will be on some type of snap or touch count in his 1st game since last September's torn ACL. Exactly how much work he'll garner is unclear. Consider Barkley a risk/reward RB2 in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 7. Devontae Booker should dominate backfield work this weekend and is a volume-based RB2 in fantasy lineups.
The "estimate" for Giants RB Saquon Barkley's timetable for return from his sprained ankle is 2-4 weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Barkley is scheduled for more tests on that ankle on Monday. It's worth noting that the Giants have a Week 10 bye, so if Barkley ends up on the long end of that timetable, we might not see him again until Week 11.
Giants RB Saquon Barkley is believed to have a low-ankle sprain and will "likely" miss next weekend's game vs. the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He’ll have more tests, but he’s best characterized as week-to-week," Rapoport adds. "A fast healer, Barkley will work to miss only one week." We'll look for a more concrete timetable for Barkley's return. Devontae Booker operated as New York's clear lead back after Barkley exited today's game, handling 19 of the 20 RB opportunities.
Giants RB Saquon Barkley was in a walking boot and on crutches after hurting his left ankle in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. We see this often after a player hurts an ankle, so it doesn't necessarily tell us anything about the severity of the injury. HC Joe Judge said after the game that Barkley got an X-ray on the ankle but gave no other updates. We should learn more tomorrow.
