Reports on Monday varied about just how long Giants running back Saquon Barkley will be out after spraining his ankle against the Cardinals on Sunday, but they all said he will miss this Thursday’s game against the 49ers at the very least.
Giants head coach Brian Daboll said on Tuesday that it was premature to rule Barkley out for Thursday night, however. Daboll said the team currently plans to make a game-time decision about Barkley’s availability.
As the story said, this could just be gamesmanship. Daboll called Barkley a quick healer and said the RB felt a lot better Tuesday.
