New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley will likely sit out the preseason and he is uncertain for Week 1, according to NFL reporter Dan Graziano.
In Week 2 of the 2020 season, the Giants suffered a huge setback as Barkley tore his ACL.
Barkley has been making a good progress in his recovery from the injury but the Giants won’t rush anything with their star running back.
“So the way the Giants are approaching Saquon Barkley this offseason heading into training camp, they’re just going to be as careful as possible, as they can with him. They’re not going to rush him back from an injury just so they can say he was ready for training camp, he was ready for Week 1…So far so good, but they’re probably going to limit him at the start of camp, I think it would be shocking to see him in a preseason game,” Graziano said.
Barkley, who was selected at No. 2 in the 2018 NFL draft, was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2018.
