Giants' Saquon Barkley active for game against Eagles

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley is active for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Sources had described Barkley as a "legit 50-50" for Sunday's game to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Saturday, and they wanted to see how he felt in pregame warmups before deciding whether he would play.

Barkley, who was listed as questionable because of a neck injury, appeared on the injury report for the first time Thursday. He was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday and Friday.

Giants coach Brian Daboll said this week that the injury did not occur during Wednesday's practice, when Barkley was listed as a full participant.

Barkley, who is the NFL's fourth-leading rusher with 1,055 yards, brushed off any injury concerns when he talked Thursday, describing it as late-season soreness.
