Some who have watched Saquon Barkley suggest that he hasn’t returned to the form he showed before last year’s torn ACL, but Barkley rejected that notion after Sunday’s loss.
“It’s week whatever in the NFL, no one is 100 percent physically. That’s their opinion, but I know I am,” Barkley said, via WFAN.com.
The story opined the Giants were terrible before Barkley tore his ACL and they remain terrible through 12 games of this season even after Barkley's return. The story went on to say the Giants were playing without quarterback Daniel Jones and a pair of wide receivers, which would seem to set the stage for Barkley to put the offense on his shoulders, but he managed 55 rushing yards on 11 carries and 19 receiving yards on six catches and dropped a pair of passes.
