Giants RB Saquon Barkley Takes To Golf In Comeback From Torn ACL

Videos by OutKick

It sounds like golf might be the ticket to recovery for New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley and his surgically-repaired right knee.

The running back, who missed all but a game and a half in 2020, is working his way back to the field, and the team thus far seems pleased with his progress.

In a video posted by acclaimed golf instructor George Gankas, Barkley appeared perfectly normal, showing that he’s getting close to 100 percent health.

“It’s going to be whenever my body tells me I’m ready,” Barkley said in early June.

“I have no expectation, no set day when I’m going to be full go.”

He carried the ball 15 times for just six yards in the Giants’ opener against Pittsburgh, a 26-16 loss.

The running back went down in Week Two against the Chicago Bears. In that game, he had four carries for 28 yards but then tore his ACL and partially tore his meniscus.
