Saquon Barkley says hamstring feels ‘good’

Saquon Barkley Giants

Saquon Barkley says that his hamstring feels “good” even though he hasn’t been participating in practice or preseason games.

Barkley left the New York Giants’ practice last Monday with a hamstring injury. The team appears to be taking things cautiously with him, but he says he should be ready for Week 1, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

Barkley was cleared to do individual drills this week, but he still has not participated in full 11-on-11 practices. He did not play in the team’s preseason game against the Jets on Friday night.

The Giants already saw what the No. 2 overall pick could do during his first preseason game, so they probably feel there is no need for him to push it during the preseason. Their goal is probably to have him 100 percent when the regular season begins. They open up on Sunday Sept. 9 against the Jaguars.
