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."

Three NFL teams have been in contact with Brown and would like to sign him.

Patrick Mahomes will return to the Kansas City Chiefs for Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans.

"I'm in a good spot,'' Mahomes said after the Chiefs concluded their practice week on Friday. "I'm ready to get out there.''

Mahomes dislocated his right kneecap in an Oct. 17 game against the Denver Broncos.

"I knew I had a chance once I talked to those doctors and they said as long as I was functioning well, moving well, I could play this week,'' Mahomes said. "Coach [Andy] Reid still wanted me to take it day by day. 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.''
