Saquon Barkley Making Progress From Ankle Sprain

Tuesday, September 26, 6:00 PM

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) wasn't expected to do much at all at the team's walkthrough practice on Tuesday, but he's headed in the right direction. "He's really now, I'd say, in the day-to-day category. Feels a lot better today. But we'll kind of take that all the way throughout the week and see how he improves," head coach Brian Daboll said. Barkley suffered a dreaded high-ankle sprain in Week 2 and was forced to sit out on a short week last Thursday in the loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The Giants have an extra day this week with their Week 4 game coming on Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks, and they won't release their first injury report until Thursday. The 26-year-old can't be ruled out to return on Monday, but he'll also be extremely risky in starting fantasy lineups.

Nick Chubb News

Nick Chubb Will Be Out At Least Six Months

Saturday, September 23, 7:59 PM

Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb (knee) suffered a season-ending injury during the Week 2 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. At first glance, this looked like possibly a career-ending injury for the superstar back. Luckily, it ended up being better than some people originally thought. Chubb has suffered a torn MCL and given a recovery timetable of six to eight months. The surgery hasn't happened yet, so this timetable could change. However, it sounds like Chubb could be back in action as early as the beginning of next season.
