OCTOBER 2, 2019 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
Running back Saquon Barkley (ankle), right guard Kevin Zeitler (shoulder), and linebacker Alec Ogletree (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.

Barkley appears ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation from his high ankle sprain as he was spotted doing light running and change of direction maneuvers on the sidelines at practice. Cornerback Sam Beal, who is currently on Injured Reserve with a hamstring injury, was spotted running sprints. He is eligible to return to practice after the sixth game.

Running back Wayne Gallman (neck), left tackle Nate Solder (neck), linebacker Lorenzo Carter (neck), and linebacker Tae Davis (concussion) were limited in practice.

“We have a bunch of guys here that this time of year, it’s just game soreness. I’m not really concerned about… I guess Zeitler’s on here and Lorenzo Carter,” said Head Coach Pat Shurmur. “Tae Davis is coming back. He had a good day today, considered a non-contact day in the (concussion protocol), obviously. Wayne Gallman, Nate (Solder). Just game soreness stuff. This time of year, it kind of creeps up. By the end of the week, most, if not all, of these guys will be ready to go. This is a tough team.

“(Barkley is) progressing… Some people’s doctors had him (out for) eight weeks. Not my doctors… I don’t know yet (if he can play this weekend)… He said he felt good.”
