Giants' Saquon Barkley: Dealing with mild strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants are referring to Barkley's left hamstring issue as a "mild strain."

The team chose to address Barkley's status because he left practice early Monday after stretching out to make a catch. The running back's left leg was wrapped for the remainder of the session and subsequently examined. Per coach coach Pat Shurmur, the Giants plan to "be smart" with their prized rookie "as we move along here." His statement suggests that the team will employ a cautious approach, which likely foreshadows Barkley sitting out Friday's preseason game against the Lions.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Breaks off 39-yard run on first touch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley rushed five times for 43 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game during Thursday's 20-10 loss to the Browns in the preseason opener.

The hype surrounding Barkley coming into his first NFL action was almost as massive as his quads, and the second overall selection in this past draft didn't disappoint. He ripped off a 39-yard run on the game's very first offensive play, making a nice cut at the line of scrimmage before bursting up the sideline. The only criticism of Barkley's performance here was his tendency to bounce everything outside, as he won't simply be able to outrun linebackers at this level like he did in college. Jonathan Stewart also mixed in during the two drives played by New York's offensive starters, but the plodding veteran isn't much of a threat to Barkley's playing time.
