Saquon Barkley:

    Forecasts of Saquon Barkley becoming the highest-paid running back in the NFL after this season always included one caveat. If he stays healthy. He didn’t. The long-term implications of Barkley’s season-ending torn ACL include a more complex contract-extension dance than likely would have taken place if he finished his third season atop the rushing leaders and headed to the Pro Bowl. In fact, the mostly likely scenario is the negotiation is shelved for a year. “Unfortunately I think you have to play out your fourth year,” a prominent agent told The Post. “I don’t know how the Giants could do a market-value deal for Barkley. Other than his great commercials, he’s got a great rookie year. What else?” The Giants...
    Whoa, Joe Judge threw down the gauntlet at the feet of Jason Garrett, didn’t he? “Jason has to put some ways to get Evan out there and get him the ball,’’ Judge said Wednesday after the news broke that, in addition to losing Saquon Barkley for the season, Sterling Shepard will miss at least three games with a toe injury. How about that? It sure seemed as if Judge was putting the onus on his offensive coordinator, challenging Garrett to unleash the talent within tight end Evan Engram. Or not. “I wouldn’t look too far into that,’’ Judge said Thursday. “I understand the way it came out and the way it was phrased. I wouldn’t read too far into that...
    Joe Judge Settling in to Life Without Saquon Barkley By: John Fennelly ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants lost star running back Saquon Barkley to a torn ACL for the season last Sunday in Chicago and now face the prospect of a running back-by-committee approach. Then again, whoever holds the hot hand could end up getting the reps. “He may be the guy for that moment,” head coach Joe Judge told reporters about the hot hand on Thursday. “Maybe he’s the guy for that game plan the way things are working and clicking. But I’d say within every specific game plan, we’re going to always look to use all of the players we have at...
    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Daniel Jones doesn’t feel any more pressure because New York Giants offensive star Saquon Barkley is sidelined for the season with a knee injury. The 22-year-old from Duke is smart enough to know playing quarterback in the NFL is tough enough without trying to do more than he is being asked to do. So while it might seem the Giants (0-2) need more from their second-year leader, the truth is everybody needs to play better. It starts Sunday at MetLife Stadium against the San Francisco 49ers (1-1). “We talked a little bit about generating explosive plays as an offense and everyone doing their job,” Jones said after practice Wednesday. “I think that’s the way we’re...

    Getty Ex-Giants RB Paul Perkins. The New York Giants will be welcoming a battered and bruised San Francisco 49ers team into MetLife Stadium this Sunday.

Here’s a recap of the biggest injuries to players across the league and how it could impact fantasy football: Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants (knee) Barkley went down early and suffered what appeared to be a season-ending knee injury in Sunday’s loss to the Bears.

Dion Lewis is next on New York’s depth chart and will be a top waiver...
    Saquon Barkley, the player, cannot be replaced. Saquon Barkley, the roster spot, will have to be replaced. And so, the Giants are looking for candidates and will bring in veteran running back Devonta Freeman for a look-see, a source confirmed. Freeman, 28, spent six years with the Falcons but was released in March and out of work. The Eagles brought him in this past weekend but Freeman was not signed. That proximity to New Jersey helped, as he will start the COVID-19 testing protocols on Monday and visit with the Giants Tuesday for a workout. Barkley went down with a right knee injury on the first play of the second quarter in Sunday’s 17-13 loss to the Bears in...
    Getty Ex-Falcons RB Devonta Freeman. Slightly over two months ago, Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox urged the New York Giants to sign running back Devonta Freeman. Knox’s plea may have been a bit premature at the time. However, with star running back Saquon Barkley likely done for the season with a torn ACL, his vision may soon come to fruition. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has reported that the Giants plan to bring in the ex-Atlanta Falcons starting running back Devonta Freeman for a workout. Freeman, who spent the weekend visiting an NFC East foe in the Philadelphia Eagles, “should be” visiting with Big Blue on Monday. From @GMFB: The #Giants lost RB Saquon Barkley for the season with an...
    CHICAGO — Dion Lewis saw no need to sugarcoat the stomach-turning truth. How do the Giants replace Saquon Barkley if an MRI exam Monday confirms he is out for the season with a torn ACL? “Nobody’s going to be able to do what he does,” Lewis said. Everyone agrees. So, now what? The Giants turned to Lewis for the final three quarters in a 17-13 loss to the Bears and he rushed 10 times for 20 yards and added four catches for 36 yards. Despite the way he “hid behind some of the big guys” for a one-yard touchdown on fourth down, running between the tackles is far down on his list of skills — behind receiving and pass-protecting. The...
    Saquon Barkley’s suspected torn ACL left the New York Giants deflated on Sunday as they dropped to 0-2 and potentially lost their star running back for the season. Barkley injured his knee as he ran to the sideline and was tackled by Eddie Jackson during the first quarter of the Giants’ 17-13 loss to the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. The third-year back immediately grabbed his knee and punched the ground in disgust, before being carted to the locker room on a day when several NFL players suffered serious injuries. Barkley will undergo tests on Monday to determine whether he has torn his anterior cruciate ligament. ESPN reported that was the injury the Giants feared he had suffered. “Obviously...
    Should the New York Giants kick the tires on Devonta Freeman after Saquon Barkley injury? By: Alexander Wilson September 21, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe worst part about Sunday for the New York Giants wasn’t losing to the Chicago Bears, it was watching star running back Saquon Barkley fall to the ground in pain. Just two plays before his knee evidently gave out, Barkley hyperextended his elbow and left the field for a split second. Barkley’s return was welcomed with a sigh of relief, but it didn’t last long after jump-cutting to the right side of the field and making contact with Bears’ safety Eddie Jackson. By the time Saquon was engaged with the defender, his...

    The injuries started early and didn’t seem to stop on Sunday. Saquon Barkley’s season-ending knee injury is obviously the biggest news, but Christian McCaffrey, Cam Akers, Drew Lock, Jimmy Garoppolo, Courtland Sutton, Davante Adams, and Raheem Mostert were just some of the other key players who exited early and did not return to their respective games. That many important injuries opens the door for replacements, many of whom will be among the top Week 3 fantasy waiver wire pickups. From handcuff RBs like Dion Lewis/Wayne Gallman, Mike Davis, Jerick McKinnon, and Darrell Henderson to potential breakouts like Chase Claypool, Justin Herbert, and Dalton Schultz, you can bet it’s going to be a busy week for waiver claims and free agent adds.

    In a dizzying day in the NFL, one move is the most curious of all. Giants running back Saquon Barkley appeared to delete all but one Instagram post — a tribute to the late Kobe Bryant — the same day the Pro Bowler suffered a potentially season-ending knee injury in the Giants’ 17-13 loss to the Bears. Instagram Barkley, coming off a disappointing Week 1 loss against the Steelers, still identifies himself as the running back for the Giants in his bio, but photos of him in a Big Blue uniform were nowhere to be found. Athletes commonly use social media to vent their frustrations, though it’s unclear the circumstances surrounding the 23-year-old Barkley’s decision to seemingly scrub his page....
    The first thing you saw was the flag, and in a way that made perfect sense because this really did feel like a game that should end with no time left on the clock, the Giants and the Bears fighting over one final yard, the skinniest margin between a win and a loss. The Giants had already suffered a gruesome loss, of course. Saquon Barkley was back in the visitors’ locker room at Soldier Field, his right knee wrapped, already X-rayed, surely bound for an MRI tube Monday. The news wasn’t expected to be good.

    CHICAGO — New year, new coach, same poor start (and fewer answers available) for the Giants. A spirited comeback by the undermanned Giants ended like this: One play from the 10-yard line with four seconds remaining. Daniel Jones’ throw sailed incomplete and the penalty flag flew for offensive pass interference against Golden Tate, sending the Giants back to the locker room with heads hung low. Saquon Barkley’s serious right knee injury — which the team fears to be a torn ACL and is scheduled for an MRI Monday — and the game-ending toe injury to Sterling Shepard cast the uncertain dark clouds over a 17-13 loss to the Bears. The Giants are 0-2 for the seventh time in eight years...

Barkley was expected to thrive this season as Daniel Jones hopefully developed into an impact NFL passer.

This week, when former New York Giants great Tiki Barber said on his radio program that Saquon Barkley may not be a “three-down back” because of his poor blocking, many thought a cold war between the two would form. That didn’t happen. Barkley has taken Barber’s comments as constructive criticism rather than disrespect or jealousy. Barber holds all of the Giants’ career rushing records and Barkley poses a threat to break those and Tiki has even predicted that will happen. “Obviously, Tiki is a legend....
    There have been prickly issues surrounding Saquon Barkley from the moment the Giants took him with the No. 2 pick on the evening of April 26, 2018. The one that has the most legs is the simplest one: Why would Dave Gettleman have used a franchise-quarterback-sized pick, in a draft flush with potential franchise QBs, on a running back? And even as Barkley became an immediate sensation — 2,028 yards from scrimmage as a rookie, back-to-back thousand-yard rushing seasons in his first two years, despite an ankle injury last year — and even as many of those franchise QBs have struggled to live up to their billing, there has been this gnawing concern: What if the Giants — in full-blown,...
