Saquon Barkley returns to New York Giants practice after injury
On Sunday, former Penn State RB Saquon Barkley was a full practice participant at New York Giants training camp for the first time since tweaking his hamstring roughly two weeks ago (Aug. 13).
Barkley’s teammate, fellow RB Jonathan Stewart, said the rookie has remained hard at work off the field while the injury limited him.
“Yeah, it’s a great sign,” Stewart told NFL.com’s Dan Salomone. “He’s a workaholic. A lot of people don’t see the behind-the-scenes stuff that goes on and that kid, since the moment he got hurt, it was almost kind of like he was working to get back immediately, so he’s recovered pretty well.”
As the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, interest in Barkley’s rookie season extends well beyond the Nittany Lions and Giants fanbases. A healthy Barkley should be exciting for all football fans to watch this fall.
Best #Giants news from today: Saquon Barkley practiced full speed in full pads for first time since his left hamstring strain Aug. 13 and looked great. He was darting through holes, cutting hard on sharp angles and showing no signs of the hammy bothering him #Giants
