confirmed - spotted coming down Broadway last night ....

These are always the best posts.  I got a high ankle sprain at the YMCA and the recovery time was totally comparable to what Saquan Barkley will be going through.

Will never be the same.

Yeah I can’t even begin to count how much careers an ankle sprain has ended.

Probably because it’s 0.

yeah, understood - it's not my opinion or proclamation, just passing it along 🤷‍♂️

Oh for sure, I wasn't attacking you or anything, was just adding my take. I guess I was somewhat responding to the post right after yours as well. Much appreciated for passing along.

Just like there was the article where Saquon said he didn't understand how somebody from the outside who didn't talk to his doctors or know his body put him on a 6-8 week timetable, not sure how a beat report can emphatically say that Saquon won't be playing this Thursday.  Who is this Jordan Ranaan guy? 

In any case, the decision is simple.  If he's active, you play him.  If he's not, then make other plans.  The only complicating issue is that it might affect your waiver claims tonight.

As an owner of Barkley I was hoping he'd play this week because I need him.

However, understanding all the injuries on the offensive side of the ball AND that they are predicting a monsoon in the Boston area Thursday night I say sit him.

Oh, I'm starting the NE D.

Just not smart to bring him back for a Thursday game you have no chance of winning. And I realize you could say that about a lot of players on bad teams but even if he's 99% it just makes more sense to give him the extra ten days. 

And with Shepard and Engram out I would've expected the Pats to solely focus on stopping him so my guess is he wouldn't have had a monster game anyway.

Exactly. Ive seen no evidence to support this stupid report.

Supposedly didn't have his bags packed for the road trip according to a source.

 

FWIW:

Matt Lombardo (@MattLombardoNFL) Tweeted: Clearest indication yet that Saquon Barkley isn’t playing: Every player had a travel bag in front of their locker today, packed with uniform and helmets. No bag in front of Barkley, Engram, Gallman’s locker. #Giants

This is a good thing. We want our boy back at full strength down the stretch. The last thing we want is to bring him back early and he re-aggrevates it and is out for the season. They have nothing to play for this year so they'll shut him down without hesitation if they need to.

Exactly.  As a Saquon and NE DST owner I say rest him up!

This is no reason to play in a game where he would be the focal point for the defense to key in on.  On top of it the conditions sound like rain and mud, which would be the easiest to re-aggravate his ankle injury.  Rest him up, get him back when he is healthy.
