Saquon Barkley Won't Accept Sitting Out Remainder Of 2019

Nov 12, 2019 3:58 PM

Saquon Barkley isn't 100 percent and the New York Giants have a 2-8 record, but he still won't accept getting shut down for the season.

Barkley underwent an X-ray on shoulder after Sunday's loss to the New York Jets.

Barkley missed three games last month due to a high ankle sprain. Since returning to action, Barkley is averaging just 2.6 yards per carry after averaging 6.4 per carry initially this season.

"The mindset of sitting me out and resting me for the rest of the season is beyond me," Barkley said. "I do not agree with it. It won't happen. I'm going to keep going until I can't go no more. That's the player I am and I'm going to do it for my teammates."

I went out here in practice and took the reps and I haven't had any pain or any setbacks and so as long as we keep going with that I'm glad to be back out there.''

Cam Newton has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Newton aggravated the Lisfranc injury, originally suffered in the third preseason game, in a Week 2 loss against the Buccaneers.

"He saw two foot specialists last week who agreed that he should continue that path prescribed by the team's medical staff, and that it likely will take significant time for the injury to fully heal."

Newton had previously only missed three starts in seven seasons.
