The Cardinals acknowledged Johnson not getting any touches after the fumble was a coach's decision. The story said Johnson has been slower this year and not hitting the holes like he did in the past. The story added when Edmonds returns, Johnson's role will be a huge question, as if it's not already. Johnson doesn't exactly look like a safe play heading into Week 11 even if Edmonds has to sit again.
Star running back Saquon Barkley was banged up once again during the loss. Barkley had the worst game of his career with 13 carries for just one yard, and he was seen be several reporters entering the X-ray room following the game. Giants coach Pat Shurmur would say only that Barkley "got banged up a little bit today" when asked about it at his postgame press conference.
Shurmur didn't give much more information on Monday. All he would allow is that Barkley is "fine," and that the Giants would "absolutely not" be shutting him down despite his injury issues in the midst of what looks like a lost season. Barkley and the Giants get a bye in Week 11 before getting the Bears in Week 12.
