  • Barkley rushed 11 times for 30 yards and brought in three of four targets for 19 yards in the Giants' 22-7 loss to Washington on Sunday. In a thoroughly forgettable 4-13 season for the Giants, Barkley had a similarly underwhelming campaign on an individual level and closed it out with one more pedestrian performance. While New York's mediocre run-blocking offensive line, the team's shaky quarterback situation, and -- especially early in the season -- Barkley's still-recovering knee likely bear the brunt of the blame for the talented back's lack of production, it's arguably fair to wonder whether the fourth-year pro also lacked explosiveness and vision at times, thereby leaving some yards on the field. At least partly supporting this notion is the fact that veteran backup Devontae Booker was actually appreciably more efficient than Barkley when filling in, although there won't be any question about the latter going into training camp as the clear No. 1 back again this coming summer for what will be a contract year, barring an offseason extension.

  • Barkley (ankle) has been cleared to play Sunday against Washington, with no designation on the final injury report. Barkley had his first 100-yard rushing game of the season last week, albeit in a 29-3 loss where the Giants attempted only 11 passes. Similar volume is far from guaranteed as Barkley closes out the year sharing work with Devontae Booker, but it is a safe bet the Giants try to get him the ball with Jake Fromm unlikely to be any better than Mike Glennon at quarterback.

  • Barkley (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. With the Giants unable to get anything going in the passing game with Mike Glennon (wrist) under center this past Sunday at Chicago, they leaned heavily on their backfield, resulting in a season-high 21 carries for Barkley. Barkley thus has reached double-digit rushes in six consecutive games, averaging 18.2 touches for 71 yards from scrimmage while scoring one TD during that span. Assuming he's out there Sunday against Washington, Barkley can expect another hefty workload with second-year QB Jake Fromm directing the offense.

  • Barkley (ankle) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's injury report, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Once again, the Giants are capping Barkley's practice reps due to the ankle issue that has plagued him for much of the season. He's coming off his first 100-yard rushing performance of the campaign from this past Sunday's loss to Chicago, pushing him to averages of 17.3 touches for 68.9 yards from scrimmage per game across seven contests since he returned Week 11 from a stint on injured reserve. There's been no indication that the team intends to shut down Barkley in Week 18 against Washington, but his status nonetheless should be monitored to ensure he's out there Sunday.

  • Barkley rushed 21 times for 102 yards and failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 29-3 loss to Chicago. Barkley's performance was a silver lining for the Giants in what was otherwise a disastrous performance on offense, as Mike Glennon had as many turnovers as completions (four). Having just notched his first 100-yard rushing performance since Week 16 of the 2019 season, Barkley will look to finish strong in Week 18 against Washington.
