Saw Saquon Barkley running routes, cutting hard and sprinting full speed on Thursday. Coach Joe Judge said he's "very pleased" with where he's at. He added that Barkley is at the point where he is "mirroring our practices" to build up confidence for when he returns.

The Giants practice Saturday will be in Newark, NJ as part of the NFL's "Back Together Saturday" initiative. It is not open to the public, but local HS, Pop Warner and youth programs will be in attendance. Coach Joe Judge explained that it's "important" to get out in the community and do this, in part, because not everyone gets the opportunity to go to games.

Worst case seems to have been avoided on this Shane Lemieux knee injury, per source. Sigh of relief for Giants and their offensive line. Lemieux, a projected starter at left guard, will undergo further evaluation over next few days but it's not believed to be season-ending. Coach Joe Judge says they will know more in the next 24-48 hours.
