Alright, so we all pretty much knew this already, but now we can officially say Saquon Barkley isn’t human.

Barkley suffered what appeared to be a pretty rough ankle injury during the Giants’ Week 3 win against the Buccaneers.

After the game, reports started coming out suggesting Barkley could miss anywhere from six to eight weeks with a high-ankle sprain. It didn’t look great as the former Penn State star was on the sideline with crutches and a boot following the injury, but fast-forward to Wednesday 10 days after the injury, and he’s already making cuts on the practice field.

While Wednesday’s reports and videos from practice were music to Giants’ fans ears, even more good news on the Barkley injury front emerged on Thursday. New York head coach Pat Shurmur told the media that they will brink the running back on “as quickly and as smartly as possible” and refused to rule him out for Sunday’s Week 5 contest against Minnesota.

Talk about a huge boost to the Giants. Daniel Jones righted the ship last week without Barkley and is off to a perfect 2-0 start in his NFL career. The confidence for this New York team is already brimming, but it will boil over if Barkley returns this weekend or even next week for that matter as opposed to the possible eight-week stretch he was expected to miss.

Chances are he’ll be a gametime decision, so keep up with the news before setting your fantasy lineups.
