Giants Workhorse RB Barkley Says Mental Aspect of 2019 Has Been “Difficult”

Giants running back Saquon Barkley believes he is 100% healed from the physical effects of his ankle injury but admits that the mental aspect has been “difficult” according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic.

“Even though physically you feel like you’re back, mentally you might be telling yourself that you’re back, but you watch yourself on film and see that you’re running and you’re protecting yourself,” Barkley said. “You just don’t really think you’re doing it but naturally it’s just happening.”

Barkley actually looked more like himself vs. the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night but still came away with uninspiring statistical results. In his defense, Philly fields one of the best run defenses in the league and he should find the yards much easier this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

There is no denying, however, that the 2018 Offensive Rookie of the Year (and the first-overall pick in most fantasy drafts this summer) has had a disappointing sophomore season.
