The X-Rays for Olivier Vernon’s (Giants’ starting Outside Linebacker) came back negative. This is a great sign after Vernon got his feet tangled with some blockers and had to get carted off the field today at practice. However, Vernon has to undergo further evaluations and then we will find out the diagnosis. The hope is that he is back by Week 1 against the Jaguars.
In other news, Barkley was a full participant in practice today. However, I do not expect him to play on Thursday against the Patriots. This is due to the fact that the Giants may not want to risk any injuries before we play the Jaguars Week One. Stay tuned for more news about Barkley and Vernon.
