The MRI revealed relative good news, as Fowler put it. It's a sprain instead of something that could have been much worse. Smith will still miss valuable time as he tries to learn the offense and connect with QB Jalen Hurts.
Saw Saquon Barkley running routes, cutting hard and sprinting full speed on Thursday. Coach Joe Judge explained today that he’s “very pleased” with where Barkley’s at.
Raanan added in a tweet that Barkley's at the point where he is mirroring practices to build up confidence for when he returns. Judge added Barkley is “making a lot of strides.” Giants see tangible progress every day, according to Raanan, but Judge won't say how close he is to returning to practice. The team signed Alfred Morris today just in case Barkley isn't ready for the start of the season.
