New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley taking rehab...

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley isn’t ready to offer a timetable on his return from a torn ACL, instead sticking to a similar “one day at a time” mantra.

Barkley, who suffered a severe knee injury during a Week 2 loss to the Chicago Bears last season, said he has learned to be smart about injuries and listen to his body.

When he does return, Barkley intends to do so at full strength.

Still, missing 15 weeks of the season and being away from the team took a toll on Barkley, who also endured an injury-plagued season in 2019. He craved being part of the team and that feeling of “being a kid again.”

The Giants are expected to ease Barkley back in, not having him practice until his ACL rehab is complete. Even then, expectations are that head coach Joe Judge will go slow with the 2018 Offensive Rookie of the Year.
