Saquon Barkley, RB | NYG
Mon, Aug 02, 2021
Giants head coach Joe Judge said Saquon Barkley (ACL) is "making tangible progress" toward returning to practice.
Barkley, coming off an ACL tear that cost him almost the entire 2020 season, still isn't practicing but could join his teammates soon. "Saquon is making a lot of strides," Judge said. "He's making tangible progress. We're mirroring his rehab to the tempo and workload of the players who are practicing." Barkley on Monday was taking handoffs from the Giants' training staff, remaining to the side of the team's training camp practice. Barkley, whose Week 1 status will likely remain iffy throughout August, is slipping into the second round of 12-team drafts. Newly signed Alfred Morris and Devontae Booker should split carries early in the season if Barkley isn't ready to go.
