New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley suffered a leg injury during practice Monday.
“I don’t know [what happened],” head coach Pat Shurmur said of Barkley, who was seen with a wrap on his left leg, per SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano. “We’ll see. I think he’s all right, but we’ll find out.”
Later, Dianna Russini of ESPN reported Barkley “tweaked” his hamstring, with a source telling her the running back is “fine.”
Ah yes, Saquon Barkley is limping off a hamstring injury right now, you know, that hamstring injury that never lingers and goes away immediately. Nothing to see here.
I hurt my hamstring in like, 4th-grade basketball and I still can’t really walk correctly but Barkley will be fine.
If the NFL had any integrity and cared about the product they put on the field, they would postpone the season until Barkley is fully healthy. The league owes it to the fans to wait until the best player is able to run at full capacity.
The entire 2018 New York Giants season is on the massive thiccccc legs of Saquon.
His ability to gain positive yardage regardless of whether or not the offensive line opens up holes for him is crucial considering that Ereck Flowers is the worst offensive lineman in the NFL and will for sure get Eli Manning murdered which is just another reason why this team needs Saquon.
If Barkley is limping week 1 of the NFL season, this whole year is null and void and doesn’t count.
SAQUON BARKLEY IS THE BEST RUNNING BACK IN NFL HISTORY REMOVE EVERYONE FROM THE HALL OF FAME AND DEDICATE THE ENTIRE BUILDING TO SAQUON NOTHING ELSE MATTERS
