Saquon Barkley Q&A

August 26, 2021

Q: How does it feel to be back?

A: It felt good. Obviously, I wasn’t at practice yesterday, but it feels good being with the team, feels good to get a couple of team reps. It’s just fun to be able to play football again, feel like a little kid and just taking it day by day.

Q: On the two-minute drill, you get in two plays, catch two passes and you run off the field. Did any football instinct in you say ‘Let me stay out here? I’m in a groove now.”

A: Yeah, obviously as a player you want to stay in. I honestly think the second one I might have gotten a lot more than what we were counting for. I kind of just saw, I think (Running Back) Corey (Clement) running off the sideline, so I knew I was coming off. Just getting back to the feel of things, caught a little swing route in the 7-on-7 and really forgot we were in the low red zone. It’s those little stuff that is just going to come to you naturally as you continue to take more reps.

Q: Did you think you’d get the 11-on-11 reps today?

A: Yeah, I had an idea that I would be getting in. Just had to stay warm on the side(line), and whenever my opportunity was that I was able to go out there, (just) do what I’m able to do.

Q: You’ve been back a few weeks now, how close do you feel like your old self?

A: I feel really good right now. I’m taking it one day at a time, continuing to listen to (Director of Rehabilitation/Physical Therapist) Leigh (Weiss), (Senior Vice President, Medical Services/Head Athletic Trainer) Ronnie (Barnes), all the training staff and all the strength guys. My body is responding really well, so that’s another positive thing. We’ll see how after I continue to take more reps in team periods and team training, see how my body responds to that and we’ll get to know a little bit more.
