Ryan Dunleavy confirms the news adds that the Giants are not planning to have a pitch count for Barkley tomorrow. However, he says to not expect Barkley to get his pre-injury count of 80 snaps tomorrow. 

Barkley missed all most all of last season due to a torn ACL. The Giants were cautious with him throughout the summer and preseason.

Barkley, 24, was the second-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He’s entering the fourth year of a four-year, $31.19 million rookie deal with the Giants that included a $20.767 million signing bonus.

The Giants picked up Barkley’s fifth-year option worth $7.22 million fully guaranteed for the 2022 season this past April. 

In 2020, Barkley was limited to two games with a knee injury, tallying 34 yards on 19 carries and no touchdowns. He also accrued 60 yards on six total catches.
