“I don’t think this schedule is ideal for coming back from a major injury,” Saquon Barkley said about his Week 2 Thursday night game. “But that’s what it is. That’s the challenge I have to face.”
Barkley played 29 of 61 offensive snaps against the Broncos but was on pace for a heavier workload until sitting out most of the fourth quarter, after the score got out of hand. His longest gain on 11 touches – 10 carries and one catch – was a 5-yarder on the first play.
“My explosiveness, to me, is not a problem. It’s all still there,” Barkley said. “I didn’t really get myself an opportunity to break a long one, so I guess I couldn’t show that."
According to the story, Barkley woke up sore on Monday and that's why he's been listed as limited in practice this week. But, he's expected to start.
