The ankle injury will persist for the rest of the season

The New York Giants started this season with high hopes and maybe even some playoff aspirations. 10 games of the year, they are struggling to maintain their season.

At 3-7, they really can’t lose another game but winning matches hasn’t been easy for them over the past few years and this year is no different.

A major reason the Giants have not been able to turn their losses around is the nagging injuries they continue to suffer. One of the main victims, or culprits – depending on how you look at it – is re-run star Saquon Barkley, who has only been able to fit in 21 of the team’s last 42 games due to injuries. different.

Barkley is still dealing with an ankle injury and has limited training, although he played 36 tackles against Tampa, amassing a total of 56 yards across 12 touchdowns.

“Ankle is something – whenever you flip your ankle, it’s something that’s going to last all season,” he told reporters on Friday.

“It’s something you both have to keep going on and keep up with and it gets better every week. Just keep trusting it and keep trusting my body and keep doing the hard work I’m putting in and getting on with it. “

Barkley will continue to ‘get on with it’ but will do so without his offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, who was sacked this week following another anemic offensive output.

Barkley has grown close to Garrett during Garrett’s 26-game tenure here with the Giants and told reporters the coach wasn’t the only problem with the offense.

“Obviously with JG being fired, as an attacking player, you feel you have to bear some responsibility. Obviously, we know he’s the one who got sacked, but we still have seven games left and we have to take the responsibility knowing that it’s not just him,” Barkley said. “Overall, we haven’t done enough as an offense and we have to keep getting better and keep working on that.

“It’s easy to point fingers, sometimes you have to point your thumb. We recognize that we have to take responsibility for that as well,” Barkley continued.

“The reason why that decision was made is because we didn’t score points. The reason why that decision was made is because we don’t do the plays and at the end of the day that’s on us too. We had to go out there, make plays whenever the play was called, play out, and find a way to win the game. “

Freddie Kitchens, who has had a successful season over the past few years calling plays for the Browns in Cleveland, will likely call up plays from here on out. Barkley and his teammates will return to the drawing board once more. Hopefully they will eventually find some success.
