New York Giants’ Saquon Barkley is still trying to get back in top shape after ACL surgery last year.
When asked (how he’s feeling) at his annual Saquon Barkley Football ProCamp at West Essex High School, Barkley responded with a smile.
“I don’t know. We’ll see,” he said. “Taking it day by day. Just listening to my body. Whenever I’m able to get out there, just make sure I’m 110 percent. Not just for … my well-being, but just so I go out there and compete at a high level and show the world who Saquon is.”
The 2018 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year was pleased that so many kids and families attended this year’s camp.
“I’m a big kid at heart,” Barkley said. “We were talking to see about how much I could do. I said I’m just going to go with the flow. I said probably my kid at heart would take over. Just have fun. And it means a lot. I’m just happy these kids came out. I thank the families for making these kids come out. I want to make sure that I leave a lasting impression.”
Giants head coach, Joe Judge, said he will not risk Barkley’s condition until he’s 100 percent ready.
“We are going to make sure that we take Saquon’s rehab at the correct rate for his individual body and injury,” Judge said last month.
