Is Barkley paying against the Bears?

Or do they keep him until the last exhibition game?
I get the impression from reading media reports

that he may very well not play at all in the PS. Certainly not the last game...that's usually the one reserved for the bottom-tier guys.
I wish I knew why shurmur felt like keeping this a secret

Cover him

in bubble wrap until the season opener. If he gets hurt they will struggle to move the ball past the 50 yard line against any defense.
i don't know

Exactly. No way he plays in the last preseason game. If he plays at all, it will be the 3rd game.
I doubt he plays at all. This is a 4 win team without him.

I certainly hope...

Incidentally, will be a good test for Giants O-Line this Friday. Going against one of the very best front 7s in the NFL.
Didnít Shurmur already say he was one of those players

That wonít get any work in preseason? Or was that a question posed to him?

I doubt we will see him prior to the cowboys game.
I got the feeling they

believe he gets a TON of work in practice and would not see the field. Which is good because we need to see how the other guys do. Gallman is pretty set at #2 but the rest... Perkins looked like a complete waste last week and honestly I have never thought he was much better than a 3rd or 4th rb. We may be looking for a VET influence/insurance through the waiver wire...
Hopefully not

As much as watching him would make the games better  
Mike from Ohio : 8/13/2019 12:52 pm : link
I really hope he doesn't play at all in the preseason.
I think Shurmur is wise not to reveal his "plan"...  
Dan in the Springs : 8/13/2019 1:42 pm : link
for any of the players. It keeps things simpler in case he needs to adjust it for any reason. If he says he plans to give him a series or two then changes his mind for any reason at all he's going to have to answer for it.

Same thing with the QB's, no need to announce what the current thinking is since it isn't likely set in stone.
arcarsenal : 8/13/2019 1:45 pm : link
If he plays at all, I think it's probably just a couple series' in the 3rd game. I'd prefer he didn't even do that. He's one guy I am confident enough in and don't think he really needs the reps.

Totally agree. He's the last person the offense can afford to lose. When the transition to Jones does occur, Barkley will play a key role in helping that transition...
Please don't...  
JohnG in Albany : 8/13/2019 2:06 pm : link
play #26 in the preseason.

Okay Iíll say it  
Bleedin Blue : 8/13/2019 2:22 pm : link
Paying for what? Tickets, the teamís meals?

Sarcasm off, I hope not, if he does just one series.
