Saquon Barkley already running, cutting less than two weeks after ankle injury

Saquon Barkley Giants

Saquon Barkley seems determined to return from his ankle injury far sooner than initial timelines predicted he would, and the New York Giants star appears to be well on his way to doing just that.

Barkley suffered a high-ankle sprain during his team’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3, which was a mere 10 days ago. On Wednesday, Art Stapleton of USA Today shared a video that showed Barkley running around on the practice field and making some cuts.

A high-ankle sprain typically requires a recovery period of about four to eight weeks. While the Giants will likely play it safe with their former first-round pick, it would be shocking at this point if Barkley missed a full two months.

Barkley said after the Giants’ 24-3 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday that he is already out of his walking boot, which is yet another positive sign. He has also been telling people he can beat the timetable for his return, and it would be unwise to doubt him after seeing the way he was moving around at practice on Wednesday.
